If I win I'll give up playing the lottery ever again! LOL

The game is frustrating & I wouldn't put myself thru the frustration of trying to win another!

    Which begs the question rcb Would you give them 2 week's if you hit it?

    A good friend of mine said " Absolutely NO 2 week's notice for me"  & when I asked Why not? His answer " You think they going to give me 2 week's notice before firing me? "

    I always felt that the right thing to do is give notice. But I'm so mad at work right now that if I won, I wouldn't give those mf-ers the time of day.

    CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

    A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

      If playing frustrates you, then you shouldn't be playing at all.

        I would. I have nothing against my coworkers, and my department is small enough that one person vanishing without notice would make things much harder on the rest.

        On the other hand, my attitude toward a lot of corporate BS would become "what are they going to do, fire me?"

          Sometimes giving notice is worse than simply quitting.  You don't have to go through the hassle of " We going to throw a party because you such a great guy etc"... Skip the punch and donuts.

            Most people are frustrated by their addictions but can't stop.  Sounds like he should be seeking help.

              Your response reminds me of the movie l watched last night Murgatroyd w/ the Wife. It was the "Imitation Game"..and there is a scene in there about "Firing people" it's hilarious. Thoroughly enjoyable nonetheless.

                Maybe the " Help" you are suggesting he get to cope with his frustration is telling him to post stuff like " Winning the jackpot is easy" perhaps saying stuff like that is his pacifier..

                  LOL. I don't think they would be throwing any parties for me. Except to help me out the door! LOL.

                  Actually, one of the guys in our lottery pool at work says the same thing. He would give them the same notice that they would give him if they were going to fire him. He has a point.

                              I get PISSED when I lose, why wouldn't I?

                              You should see a friend I know when he loses, he flies into a rage, will start cursing and burn his losing tickets with his lighter lol.
