Jenny’s Gifts and Kids Wear, San Jose, California

The place that sold my winning Mega Millions lottery ticket to someone else this week.

2. Roger Rabbit spews:

Strip mall where trees don’t lose their leaves in December. Street is a divided boulevard, which could be southern California. No other clues jump out at me right now.

3. Roger Rabbit spews:

@1 Looks like I was on the right track anyway.

4. Roger Rabbit spews:

I wasted $2 on it. I won’t buy a lottery ticket unless the jackpot is $100M+ and then only $1. I read somewhere poor people spend 9% of their income on lottery tickets. Not me.

5. milwhcky spews:

Same here. $2, and only when it is a big jackpot.

I managed a gas station/convenience store back in the 90′s. I remember many customers addicted to scratch off tickets, spending all of their money and an hour of their time in my store. Just pathetic.

6. Roger Rabbit spews:

@5 What’s pathetic is the state raises revenue by preying on the poor instead of taxing the rich, thanks to gutless D’s in the statehouse.

#6. Run for office?

8. Lee spews:

@1
Good win, I bought 5 tickets in the little mini-mart right by my office. Turns out I didn’t even buy for the right drawing, and of course, didn’t win shit.

9. evil is evil spews:

In the late 1980s before lotteries first had huge payouts, I laughed at the people in the office that pooled money to buy tickets in a couple of million payouts.

A payout hit something over $100 million. I demanded to be let in. Some snarky person asked why I wanted in now.

I told her that if the pool hit, there was no way in hell that I would be the only person left in the office.

@7 I’m too old and sick to run for anything except my life when peregrine falcons show up at Green Lake Park. Besides, what makes you think I could ever persuade our legislature to stop preying on the poor and giving the money to giant corporations? This is Washington, for crissakes. We have the country’s worst tax system.
