The guy in front of me was checking his tickets and his buddy says " Jeff, you never gonna win dude". My first thought was why don't you shut your mouth since it seemed obvious that he was not a player.

What would be your response?...just asking!

      I hear many comments like that when a line forms because some of those people blame long lines on lottery sales. Those same people probably comment on how others dress, the vehicle they drive, or anything else they dislike. I laugh it off, but I would like to see what happens if they make their rude comments to the wrong person at the wrong time.

        The irony of stuff like this is the "Jeffs" of the world will be the first to look for a handout when their buddy does win

          My response is simple.  I would tell that person it's a good thing that people who have won didn't listen to people like him who said they wouldn't win.

            Good point!  I am not sure I would be as nice as others but I would smile and a say, "well YOU know I play for fun since I have a great career, family, and friends...and by the way, how is YOUR job going now?" (looking concerned).

                        I agree- it got me thinking during the day that perhaps Jeff has heard so much of  this over the years from his " friend" that it goes in one ear and comes out the other Stack, kinda like when the  wife / gf complains about guys  leaving the toilet seat up. That is one topic where an apology is required.

                          it's quite possible that these two are friends going back years Artist- funny thing is despite the remark, Jeff did not stop checking his "tickets".. and he had a bunch!
