Then they use a credit/debit card to buy a coffee and doughnut for three dollars! Pathetic. Lottery tickets of any kind take the word "convenience" out of the meaning of the name Convenience Store.They ARE the poor peoples' tax.
In North Carolina, I waited in line behind a older barefoot teen , who was checking her "winnings" from a handful of tickets. Only one card had her "winning", for a total of four dollars.

I would have walked away but, without stepping out of line, she bought four more tickets!
