  • Point frantically out the window and swear that you just saw elvis!
  • Hum the barney song 
  • Spin around in different directions and tell the clerk you are trying to unwind from the day
  • tell the clerk you will only buy the even numbered tickets from the roll of instants. 

~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

    welfare only allows me to get 1% milk now. OMG it's so watery.   

     

    Who passed that law.  SMH

    Hey darryl...If you have money for the lottery, you have money for whole milk.

      Hey Coin...Remember not long ago a kid in Florida found a filled-out lotto ticket on the counter, played it, and won a million bucks.  Ya never know.

      Yeah, I remember that LiveInGreenBay.....right place, right time, right move on his part.

      Where I live someone or maybe some college kids leave fortune cookie fortunes with numbers on them at the lotto counter but it hasn't worked yet.

      For the humorless here,

      Native Americans have a saying that the first thing a person says after they die is, "Why was I so serious". Just something to think about.

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

      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.

            Skeptical never had a problem with rude clerks myself ,but then half the time I get my ticket/s from the machine

             

            me thinks you might have better luck if U gave them a spare smile once in a while or gave them something to laugh about

              Hand the clerk a play slip for a quick pick. Then tell them if you deal me the winning jackpot numbers I promise you'll never see me again.

                  Fun thing to do CT? .. Hmm, let me think.How about if you the 3rd person in line with another 8 behind you- fill in MM/PB slips for them, hand it out to each with the usual " One for you, one for you etc and end with the " People l know you folks lead busy lives so this makes it easier for you to get back to doing what really matters instead of waiting here in line.. You can thank me later.Big Smile

                    I've bought lottery tickets in several states and a couple of stores actually had "lottery lines", but I had to wait until "the lottery counter clerk" showed up. It never occurred to me find some fun things to do while waiting.

                    However to stay on topic, CT can take longer than necessary telling the clerks jokes (or whatever else he thinks is fun) so the mean looking guy behind him who is playing 4 minute Keno gets shut out and then CT can have a laugh with the mean looking guy while the numbers he wanted to play are being drawn.

                      Stack,

                      Well once again it was a boo boo to open your comment since I have you blocked.

                      You assume much, for one thing Illinois does not have Keno, for another I never said anything about joking with the clerks, I just mentioned putting a filled out play slip back in the rack.

                      I've mentioned strokers here on the board several times, believe me I'm not one....but you certainly are with your replies.

                        hide all the widdle pencils

                        Frickin' hate when there's no pencils, and the clerk is too busy ringing up doughnuts and a diet pepsi for a 300 pounder.

                          Stack,

                          Well once again it was a boo boo to open your comment since I have you blocked.

                          "You assume much, for one thing Illinois does not have Keno"

                          Illinois probabaly doesn't have very many "lotto counters" either, but that didn't stop you from childishly suggesting "having fun" on one.

                          "for another I never said anything about joking with the clerks, I just mentioned putting a filled out play slip back in the rack."

                          Correct, you suggested writing on a play slip and putting it back in the rack where a real lottery player will find it and throw it away. Do you hide, wait, and watch the reactions of real lottery players?

                          Are you going through your second childhood or have you never got out of your first?

                            Think of Coin Toss next time there are no pencils.
