Today, the Powerball lottery game was played by millions of people.
The reason?  Because it was worth about $540,000,000 if you took the money over 20 years.
There were 3 winners of the jackpot.
I was not one of them.
Like I said, the game was played by millions of people.
I thought I was among the millions who played.
I bought 5 tickets.
I asked for Powerball tickets.
Instead, I got 5 tickets of "The Pick" lottery game.
The store clerk sold me the wrong tickets and I did not check to see if the clerk gave me the right game tickets.
So, I never had a chance to win the huge jackpot, though I did win $20 on the "The Pick" game.
Normally, I would complain to the store manager about the problem and raise holy hell.
Except the clerk is a co-worker and a friend of mine.
So, I just have to shrug my shoulders and pull out my hair.
