What is wrong with all you North Carolinians? Do you not know there are needy children out there in our state depending on you to buy lottery tickets so they can have Pre-K, scholarships and school buildings?
According to this article, the Lottery folks are begging people to buy tickets. They are even dispatching sales representatives to lottery outlets (gas stations) around the state trying to convince people to plunk down $20 for the second installment of the $1 million raffle.
"Fill ‘er up with Regular, grab me a Diet Pepsi, a Moon Pie and a hand full of them there raffle tickets, please."
Lottery officials are shocked, shocked I tell you, that people aren’t willing to shell out the cash for lottery tickets right after Christmas. I guess we’re all just selfish and don’t really care about the chil’ren, right?
