The Scratch Cards

I believe it is in my destiny to win big money. Somehow. Somewhere. Sometime. I expect to win this large amount that will allow me to fulfill my two basic wants at the moment, a car and a MacBook Pro.

To those of you who will respond, get a job! I can tell you that as I'm in my final year of university, that would be foolish. And silly. Plus, quite frankly, I haven't got the time.

However, I do think it's a little strange to expect to win money, yet I just think I will. Therefore, I seem to be buying scratch cards on the odd occasion and I recently had a big win. I won £1.

I never liked scratch cards. They always struck me as cheap and tacky. The novelty value of scratching off the weird protective layer soon comes off, if you pardon the pun. Also, it always feels like being the taboo, dirty product for a gambler to buy. It strikes me as being the equivalent of a drinker going into a Sainsburys and leaving with a bottle of their own vodka.

Yet, I find myself buying these very things. Maybe it's time I re-started playing the lottery?

  1. Haha, how about this? My gran bought me and my siblings scratch cards for Christmas... Then, in quite possibly the first time I've ever won anything ever, I got £20, but I just felt really guilty as I watched my younger brother (the evil twin) win £4 and then my other brother (the good twin) and my sister (the girl in the family) just sit and wallow in their disappointment...

    On the bright side, I won £20!! :)

  2. Haha not bad winning £20, i'm still yet to win more than a quid

  3. I’m not sure where you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.
