Who's Winning?

I've dreamt of the winning lotto ticket ending up in my hands.  Have you?  Just think about that for a sec.  Wouldn't it be great?  Would you steal for it?  Would I steal for it?  Nope.  Well, I don't think I would.

Sunday night on Dateline NBC, Chris Hansen did another report on dishonest store clerks who keep winning lotto tickets.

The investigator would ask the clerk if their ticket was a winner and things went from there...  Clerks lying saying the ticket was not a winner or it was a $100 winner when it was really $10,000 winner.

Actually, it lead to many people telling many lies... just for money.

Times are tough all over.  I know it.  You know it.  Charlie Sheen will soon be feeling his own financial pain (he might decide all those millions - not so bad). 

By the end of the show I felt kinda bad.  I wish more focus would have been given to those clerks who told the truth.  Hey, Chris Hansen, give me a story that makes me smile and feel good about life.  I'm facing crap every day. 

It would be nice to forget our worries...at least for an hour.

I suggest you watch reruns of some old shows that will make you laugh instead.
