Life has a way of setting you straight.

Sometimes we all need a little course correction, and then the Universe steps in and gives it to you.

So tonight (like many other people), I caved and ran out to buy a lottery ticket. I couldn't help it, even a little taste of that jackpot could change my life.

So I go to the closest CVS and see this old man sitting next to the ticket machine (which I have never used), talking to people blas they buy their tickets and seemingly annoying them all. I'm a bit of an introvert so chatting with strangers is not my idea of a good time. I was also raised to be polite and have trouble being rude to people.... Basically I'm screwed.

Finally its my turn, I'm already annoyed with him and he hasn't even spoken to me. First ticket goes in easy, the second one for the Mega draw won't... WTH? Then the old man I was all annoyed with shows me you have to enter these numbers, and how to do it correctly.

I am a dick.

Lesson learned and hopefully remembered.

(Don't be a dick.)
