Why Are Some People Luckier Than Others?

Sunday, August 04, 2013

First let me start off by saying that the lucky person that I am referring to is my good friend Barbara. We actually met in Third Grade. So we know each other very well.

The reason for this blog is this: Barbara is usually lucky.

On yesterday she called me and wanted to "get out of the house," "go somewhere," "do something."

She stopped for gas and got $30.oo worth of gas. She goes in the gas station and decides to buy a $10.oo scratch off ticket. She won $40.oo, which paid for her gas and the ticket.

After we left my house, she wanted to go play a game called Keno. We stopped at a gas station and I only played two rounds and won nothing. I watched her play 12 more rounds and and win most of them.

She bought more scratch offs and won on all but two tickets. She bought 7 lottery tickets for that $300 million jackpot before we left. I haven't heard her screaming yet, so she must not have won.

I have been with her on two different occasions when she has won $500.oo on a scratch off ticket.

There are more times I could tell you about, but there are so many that this blog would not hold it.

People are always giving her things (including me). They help her out and fix things in her home all for free.

On Friday she had finally had enough of her boss, so she quit her job. Friday night, she gets a call from a casual friend of hers and that woman's boss wants to hire Barbara full time. She starts Tuesday.

Luck??? Who knows, but she does seem very lucky from where I'm sitting.

I don't know why that some people are luckier than others, but I wish some of that luck would rub off on me. emoticon

    Some people are like that. We ride our motorcycles with a guy who always seems to win one of the raffles and I never win anything, and proximity to him never seems to help me. On the other hand, I know a woman at church who always seems to find the greatest bargains on anything, so if I go shopping with her, I can find them, too.

    I have never had luck like that. What a good story of your friends life.

    I'd be glad to have some of her luck. In my case I am that country song about--if it were not for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!
