Powerball brings out the crazies

I don’t think I’ve ever been so relieved to have had someone other than me win the $200 million jackpot. Don’t get me wrong, it would be amazing if I had been the winner, but holy fuck it sucks at work when it gets above $150 mil. People start to turn into savage beasts! Plus everyones supersticious ways become more and more evident. I have a regular that comes into the store and gets a quick pick lotto ticket. He checks it over and decides if he likes the “position” of the numbers then if everything is good for him, he’ll get another ticket, only this time with his choice of “position” for the numbers. All I ever want to say is, “just take a ticket and move along or I’ll position my foot up your ass!”.
