Habits, Vices, and Mannerisms

Try, Try Again

The guy in front of me at the convenience store was buying a ton of scratch-off lottery tickets. The clerk yells “Good luck!” after he pays, and he smiles like a son-of-a-bitch. He should have just thrown that $20 directly into the trash.

Why do people actually think they’re going to win? Especially from a scratch-off?!

The lottery commission is the one who prints the numbers, they know what numbers you need in order to win… do you really think they’re just gonna let one slide ‘cause you’re a nice person? Hell no. They don’t give two shits about you or anything you stand for. They’d kill you just as soon as look at you. These thugs are the bottom of the barrel, the worst of society. They can all go to hell.

Get You Hooked

Good luck, douche!

Oh, sure, once in a while you’ll uncover a $1 or $2 ‘prize,’ but that’s only to keep you playing. How many people actually ‘break even,’ let alone actually make money on the deal?

Think about it: do you personally know anyone who has won a substantial amount of cash from the lottery? I don’t mean someone you saw on the news. I don’t mean your best friend’s, brother’s, second wife’s uncle, twice-removed. I mean someone you actually know, have had conversations with, maybe even consider a friend. No, you don’t. No one does! That’s the point!

Smoke Screen

Even the ‘winners’ they trot out on the news are actually lottery workers who just turn around and give the money back! The whole got-dang thing is a scam, and they’ve got you (and me!) by the nuts.

Maybe it’s the hope of winning that keeps people playing. But hope don’t pay the bills, if you get me. The sooner we all realize that there’s no winning the lottery, the better. Stop spending your cash, and put these bloodsuckers out of business!

  1. And once again, you have no idea what you’re talking about! The money from lotteries goes toward education. And people actually do win. My buddy won $500 from a $1 scratch-off. I went with him when he cashed in the ticket. It was real cash, Danka. So stop writing about things of which you have no understanding!
