Message Subject Poor Households Earning $13K Per Year Spend Over $1K On Lottery Tickets
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Last year I was out of work and having a hard time finding a job.

I offered to cut my nieghbors 15foot hedge that lines his entire yard, it took me almost a week to finish it and clean up the mess. He paid me 300$, I went to dinner that night and put 10$ down on keno and won 5000$.

It was the answer to everything at the time and I would have been screwed financially now had I not won.

So just because you haven't won doesn't mean that people are not winning, you just have bad luck the 10$ risk was worth it at the time.

Also since we are making generalizations about people here in this thread, i've found that most rich people I've met are just tightwads and typically extremely narassitic, lacking any empathy for their fellow man. Rich financially and completly devoid of any moral value.

But each to his own, if you like collecting a bunch of green paper that has no real value in the end, then more power to you.

Just remember you can't take it with you when you go, and your kids will end up hating each other fighting over what's left.

If you earn the money yourself who cares what the person is like. They can be as selfish or giving as they want. It is the people who 'steal' from others because they are lazy and don't want to work I have a problem with. I have no problem helping out people who are trying to find work or who are working poor and need a break.

I know a few thats well off thats took plenty off of others and especially the poorer.Of course they dont consider it stealing if they planned it out so they could take advantage of someone struggling to get by.
Vacations are so nice and so much easier to afford if you have someone else paying your basic living expenses.Most of those will say they made it with no help from anyone though.
