I just won the lottery!

Yesterday on the way to Houston it started to rain, imagine the shock there , and of course, once I got wet I had to pee. So I stopped at this leetle convenience store and used their facilities. I feel kind of weird about using folk's head without buying something, I didn't need anything, so I bought a lottery ticket.

I just looked at the numbers and I WON!!!!!!

Tomorrow I'm gonna traipse my happy ass down and collect my three dollars! More money to spend at CCR on all the farkle vendors!

Excellent news! Let's see that's $3, payable over 20 years, minus federal taxes, so you should get about . . . oh, never mind.

I feel your pain

My insurance agent sends me a lottery every year on my birthday. This year I scratched off and won $1. Ticket is still sitting right here. Not sure what to do with that kind of money...

I'm not sure either, but with a whole 3 bucks, I think I'm gonna hire an investment counselor.

Sure, but Nevada has plenty of other fine establishments that will gladly take your money. Odds are probably slightly better, too.

I'm here for you! Listen carefully......Go to the nearest convience store and buy 3 more tickets! If you win, my fee is $1, if you loose, you went to the wrong store at the wrong timeand it's not my fault!

One upmanship

Not to brag...but just received notification that I have won the Spanish Lottery in Spain. Yessiree, postmarked from Madrid, so it's gotta be real.
My money is being held with the venerable Witty Security and Finance Company. Unfortunately they don't have a web site, but have an email address of [email protected].
Gotta go type up the old resignation letter. I'll never see another poor day.

How much money do they want you to send so they can send your winnings? That's one of the big scams here in Miamer. You've won! Send us $200 so we can overnight your check.......My dad almost fell for that one!

Tip --- just leave the mattress stash alone for a bit. I know you don't have much room left under there, butt bird-in-hand... and all that!!!

Sounds like the bonus I got several years ago. My boss called to tell me the good news but she just happened not have the dollar amount when she called. SO I waited for the big fat check to show up. I got a whole $7.00. After I got the check I happened to be talking to my boss and she asked what thought about my bonus, I told her I was insulted and that I would never cash that check. I told her the company should have just kept it. It cost more money to produce it. The $7.00 was after taxes and all that crap. The bonuses have been alot better in recent years and she got fired so I guess all is good now.

All i can say is spend your winnings wisely.
