First, the bitch...to the Bitch at the GAS station the other morning that, after wasting the cashiers time checking your ticket, you then proceed to stand there and chit chat about some new lottery game and blah blah blah. Now normally with 2 cashiers and 2 cash registers this wouldn't be an issue, except at the other cash, is a woman very slowly trying to decide what scratch tickets she wants, and therefore both cashiers are being held up by tickets. It's somewhere between 745 and 8am and and I just want to pay for my GAS and coffee and get to work, I had a very busy day ahead of me. My problem with you was this, the ALC put little machines in EVERY retailer so that you could check your tickets YOURSELF,without having to make people wait for fifty losers before one winner. You could have simply checked it yourself and been on your way. Second issue is after you did pay for your GAS, because remember, we're at a GAS station, and got the cashier to check your ticket, you KEPT TALKING!!!! If you haven't got anywhere better to be then fine stay and chit chat all you like, but get the fuck out of the way and let other people pay and be on their way. I had to get to work, and I carpool with three others who also had to get to work. And real nice threatening to call the police because I was rude to you...I am sure they've got tonnes of resources available to get right on that! I'm still waiting for the phone call. And I am sure that when that guy walked in to pay for his GAS, he didn't apprieciate you running right up to him and telling him all about the people who don't like tickets!!! Wow, I was stunned. Get over yourself already, it's was simply a matter of noticing that you were holding people up for absolutely no reason. He didn't care about you and your tickets either. You people that do nothing but scratch tickets all day, ever sit down and add up what you spend verses what you win?? How do you think the lotto stays in business?? You RARELY ever come out on top. Unless you are lucky enough to win HUGE like millions. Scratch tickets NEVER PAY OFF!! WAKE UP!!! Now to the manager or whomever you are from said GAS station, I apologize to you for flipping out at you this afternoon concerning said incident. I understand your position and know where you are coming from. But I have a very simple solution to this problem to prevent it from happening again. I also notice many other places doing the same thing. If you have more than one cash and cashier, dedicate ONE to lottery tickets as well as other purchases and leave the other free for customers who are paying for GAS...I was under the impression it was a GAS station, what with the big IRVING sign and all the gas pumps. And to the cashier that was working both that morning and this afternoon, you are correct, I probably didn't have to be that rude, I apologize to you as well. But to the bitch that initially pissed me off, a big fuck you. I really hope you can manage to pull your head out of the sand some day and take a real good look at the world around you and what really makes things 'work'.
