You may have to put some thought into this one. As I type this, I still can't decide. It's a fun, interesting poll. Can't wait to read the comments. I went against my word and bought some Powerball tickets here in Illinois. If some one wins Powerball in Illinois tonight, it was most likely me. I gotta deliver in Georgia, then heading to the house for a few days. Will be spending Christmas and New Year's on the road, unless my numbers come up very soon. Good luck to those playing Powerball tonight.

May the balls bounce in your favor!

    Cashiers, I once almost missed a flight because the clerk printed tickets in a way I didn't want and couldn't sort it without her superior.

      People who brag about winning after the draw - without posting their numbers ahead of the drawing.

      love to nibble those micey feet.

                Clowns like this, happened yesterday.

                Customer service counter was busy with Western unions, so i fill out a play slip, go to the machines and some jamoke has credits in the machine, gets tickets one at a time and scratches them on a machine. Loser, gets another ticket, all the while still has credits.

                This goes on for a while, the service counter (also handles lotto) is still busy so I tell the guy I don't see his name on the machine. He finally plays off the rest of his credits and frees the machine up.

                Bang Head

                Another thing that irks me is missing a Pick 3 by one digit, happens constantly.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  That sucks! What if the machine breaks down on the 14th ticket. Ergh!!!

                  May the balls bounce in your favor!

                      There are old people who have no business playing the Lottery. There are 3 people, where I shop, 2 men, 1 women. It never fails they will mark the tickets wrong and expect the cashier to know the numbers they wanted to play. I have never seen this one man ever have his ticket right. One time, after 5 or 6 tries, his ticket doesn't work. I asked him to see his ticket, he says to me, I know what I'm doing, don't need any help. I looked him straight in the eyes and replied, it is quite obvious, you don't. He threw the ticket on the counter and walked out. I looked at the ticket and he was trying to play a triple with a box check mark.

                          People who post 150+ Pick 3 combinations w/o designating whether the numbers posted apply to the Midday or Evening Drawing, but will take credit for winningParty should the number drawn fall in either jurisdiction.

                          Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca$hhomie

                              My vote was for the cashier messing up your tickets, but actually it's a good thing for me as well. 

                              I've won a greater amount!!!!

                              I'm sure what pisses everyone off the most 100% of the time:

                              When you drop (stop playing) a number and your state lottery drops the number!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                              Just win Baby!!!
