So, today, I stopped in to play $2 in lottery tickets. I filled in my slips, expecting to play $2. I was baffled when the clerk informed me that I owed him $6. I was shocked to see that I had accidentally picked up a $4 powerball slip along with my intended $2 ticket that had been left behind by someone else. I asked him to cancel the Powerball ticket as it was picked up by accident. He told me he could not cancel powerball but allowed me to leave to get the rest of the money.(I told him I only had the $2 on me for lottery. He used the $2 for the Powerball and canceled my intended lottery tickets. I seriously hope my intended lottery numbers don't come up. I was lucky that accidental Powerball slip was just a $4 slip and wasn't a $100 slip! So please, throw away any slips you aren't using anymore.

Why couldn't you just go "Yeah, I don't want that and I'm not paying for it. Bye." ??

"Suuuuuure I'll go get the money to pay for that thing I don't want... (never returns)"
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I was slightly tempted to just leave him high and dry and let him eat a $4 loss, but my conscience told me not to do it. Plus, I come there from time to time and he would definetely remember that I stiffed him $4. It's just plain low class to rip someone off of money that you owed for your own negligence.

What's hard to believe? Someone didn't throw out their filled out numbers slip, and I accidentally picked it up with my numbers slip. People leave discarded numbers slip on lottery stations often.

I bet you can borrow a few bucks from Kentry and just buy your numbers again.

All's well that ends well. I got the money to pay him back, and when I went back to the store, he said,"I appreciate that you came back, but I already sold the Powerball ticket." He gave me back my $2. I dodged a bullet there. And the numbers I chose would have lost. So, my conscience is clear, I am not stuck with a Powerball ticket I didn't want in the first place, the numbers I chose actually lost, and I have all my money.

You could use the $4 you saved to get a haircut.
