Ketchup With Us #35 – Breaking the Bank

Ms Mel and ODNT want to know in 57 words or less, the last time you scored big! Ketchup With Us

Though being the “We have a winner!!!” on Mr G’s Friday Foolishness makes your week complete, and is only slightly edged out by winning the Friday night lottery drawing, I was reminded of this one from a while back…

_______________

At a local fundraiser, there was a table selling pull- tab instant win tickets- ‘scratch offs’ without the scratch. So I buy a couple- in support! – and…jackpot! $50!

However they had just started and didn’t have that much cash yet, so they had to pay me from their own pockets. Only I can completely defeat “fund-raising”.

  1. Ha! I hope they made their money back at the fundraiser!
    (Did they use your win as incentive to get others to buy tickets?)

    • Actually no, since there are very few jackpot tickets, they didn’t want anyone to know that they now had LESS of a chance. I didn’t spill the beans either, I was very subtle about it!

  2. That would make me feel a little guilty about the win!
