Just the Ticket
Last week I coughed up £1.00 for a scratch card. I rubbed carefully and discovered I'd got my money back. Today I took the winning card to another lottery outlet to get my winning £1.00. The girls said it so quickly ' ya want another card then?' and produced another card identical to the winning card I'd just given her. I thanked her and left the shop, sat in my car picked up a penny... scratched away the areas and hey presto I'd won yet another £1.00. So I got out of the car entered the shop, smiling and gave the girl behind the counter my second winning card, in return I had answered her question before she had had time to ask it. Yes I had yet another card... and to cut a long story short, as not to want to bore you all to death.. I scratched it off and 'fuck me' I'd won YET again!! Yeah you've guessed it.. £1.00. I got out of the car went into the shop and handed my card over, picked up yet another card, left the shop and sat in my car scratching the card..... only THIS time I hadn't won £1.00... I had won £10.00. Smiling with card tightly gripped in left hand I fell out of the car, sprinted to the front of the shop and handed the young girl my winning card.. ' no thanks I'll quit whilst I'm a head, and just take the money please.' Big cheesy grin on my face, £10.00 firmly in my jeans pocket and off I went, jumped in my car still wearing BIG cheesy grin on face and drove home... So today I did win... still think it was a fluke... should I have carried on? Would the next card have had more winnings on it? Think not... I'm quite happy with my £10.00 win.
