On Saturday I stopped at my favorite lottery place to buy tickets for Saturday Powerball and Cash 5, I was amused by a lady who came in buying gas, she overheard the cashier and myself talking about the lucky mega winner and she promptly said "I think the winners of these big jackpots should have to share the winnings with everyone and not get to keep it".

I said "did you buy a ticket? I wouldn't buy tickets if I was going to be forced into giving away my winnings and I doubt anyone else would either"

I then ask her why did she think she was entitled to the winnings of anyone who won? 

She said nothing else but if looks could kill I wouldn't be posting this and she stormed out of the store,  stupid people!

      I picked "hoped the JP went higher". It keeps the dream alive...

       

      Each drawing it can be either:

       

      Bad news: I didn't win, someone else did

      Or

      Bad news AND good news: I didn't win, but neither did anyone else...

        Share? In theory while the application often lacks, this is why they raise taxes to distribute for the common good. And, what the lottery does with their part and the taxes on the big winners are for. Roll Eyes
