Stacey sent me a link to Many States’ Lottery Sales are Rising in Recession. Check this out (emphasis mine):
“Someday somebody is going to win and I hope it is me,” said Albert Atwood of Nashville, who spends $100 weekly playing the Pick 5 and Lotto Plus. “I imagine that I would be a heap better off if I saved this money, but everybody has dreams.”
This guy is spending $5,200 per year on LOTTERY TICKETS!
How much do you wanna bet that this same guy will be griping that Social Security doesn’t provide him a comfortable retirement?
I would also bet that Stacey knew this article would get this reaction from me when she sent it to me…lol.
