Seriously?! Like Really...

Do you ever listen to the people having conversations in front of you in line at the grocery store? I'm terrible at it (another fancy trait I inherited from my momma...I'm sure she's cringing as she reads this. love ya mom!!). And then there are the people that talk loud because they want others to hear what they're saying...and that's exactly the point of this post.

So, here I am standing in line waiting to pay for my pop before class (I was CRAVING a pop...like real bad) at the corner gas station. The lady at the front of the line was giving the cashier some big long story about how she couldn't afford to pay her mortgage this month...but here she is buying $275 worth of lottery tickets! What the crap?! My mind was blown...not really, but seriously what is she thinking. People like her annoying the heck out of me...and she was one of those that turned as she was talking to be sure everyone in line heard her. If she was looking for sympathy she wasn't getting any. I just wanted to grab her lottery tickets and rip them up, because that's exactly what she's doing with her money.

Money management is something more people need these days...especially fools that spend their entire paycheck on lottery tickets. I'm pretty sure she has a better chance of getting struck by lightening than she does of winning the lottery. Anyway, that's my rant for the night.

Hope everyone had a fabulous Tuesday...goodnight blog friends :)

  2. My guess is that the lotto tickets are her plan for paying the mortgage. The hubs and I have a whole plan for our eventual lottery winnings (though we might buy 10 tickets a year).
