Jackass Number 9 – People who play the Lotto
OK I get one is 45 times more likely to get struck by lightning than winning the lotto.
I also get that working toward something worthwhile has a greater chance of providing monetarily success than plunking down a few buck each week at the nearby convenience store.
I also get that despite the fact despite all these state lotteries were sold on the grounds that they would bring billions to schools – the schools are all broke.
What really gets me is when I am in a big hurry at the gas station and I go into the convenience store to deal with a clerk (because of something wrong at the pump) I am forced to deal with one of these Lotto Jackasses. I am forced to stand behind some Lotto freak who makes everyone wait while the clerk scans dozens of their losing tickets.
Who are these people?
These are people who have their own special Lotto accessories! A special pouch for their tickets. They seem to have some method. It all seems very serious.
Well, Jackass, why don’t you take all that Lotto energy and convert it into something useful?
Just a thought!
