Do NOT do a lottery pool at work!!

 
Do NOT do a lottery pool at work!!

Ok...w/Powerball Lottery FEVER in FULL EFFECT...just a little reminder...I don't care if it's 'easier', you don't have time to go on your own OR you think they are your 'friends'...MONEY CAN CHANGE PEOPLE!!! Especially your co-workers...EVERY TIME a lottery jackpot gets this big...it reminds me of a prank pulled on me by a radio station co-worker...YES, it was KEVIN'S idea that we all chip in and do a lottery pool at work years ago and HE WAS SOOOOOOOO NICE...he offered to go to the store and buy the tickets...awwwwwww THANKS KEV!!!  

UNTIL I found out...this EVIL MAN...went to the store and 6:45...bought the 'work pool' tickets...then stayed til after the drawing & the winning #'s were picked...THEN he bought a ticket for the FOLLOWING DRAWING AFTER 7pm, w/that nights winning #'s...still with me??? Yes...he came to work the next day and gave out the tickets...showing people we didn't win ;( EXCEPT FOR MY TICKET!!!!!!!!! I looked at the winning #'s and matched them w/the winning #'s...CLEARLY I THOUGHT I WON!!!!!!! for about 4 minutes...I ran around the radio station like a MANIAC..."Look at the #'s!!!!!! LOOK!!! is it REAL???!!!! DID I WIN?? I WON I WON I WON!!!!!!!!" thank God Seacrest was a REAL friend and couldn't take it...he said 'Foxxy...you might want to check the DATE on the ticket'...and then the RAGE BEGAN!! Moral to the story...BUY YOUR OWN GOSH DARN LOTTERY TICKETS!!!! No one can be trusted...sorry, just saying...(ps I didn't talk to Kevin for 3 weeks and made him feel TERRIBLE!!!)

In fact...here are some of the MAAAAAANY lawsuits filed over the years...just to remind you how REAL it is...
