Have you ever had one of those moments when you look down at the register drawer and think, I could do so much with that money. And for half a second you're serious.
I've never had an opinion on gambling. It's always seemed like nobody's business but their own, and if they want to throw their money out the window with both hands, the better for them. But as I'm struggling to pay bills after two months unemployment, am behind on my RDRP (rapid debt repayment plan - for those non Mary Hunt-ers), and am just now able to buy food without counting change, I get ill watching a thousand dollars get blown. If they want to throw it away, give it to me. I'll do something productive with it.
Like pay off the $250 worth of car repairs that were the result of going in for an oil change.
