some to the person that sold you the ticket. I am talking a large amount of money. If you would give the person some money how much would you give them if the scratch off ticket was for 20,000 twenty thousand. I would . Im not sure how much. The reason I am asking is because a lady I work with won 20,000 and did not give the person one red cent. I think she should have and want to know what you think.

I don't think I would give anything to the person who sold me the ticket. I would give it to my family and friends as I think they help me more financially when I need it and give me support.

It's customary to give a gratuity to the person who sold the ticket...CHEAPSKATE!!!!

Well not all people feel like doing that . I would also give them some money but looking at this discussion I think that we are maybe in the minority. But that doesnt mean they are wrong. That is just the way they feel

This is a tough one. I would most definately give money to my family. To my friends, I am not so sure. I would only give it to my closest of friends as they are always there for me. I would definately give money to charity and the rest I would put aside until I need it. I really do not think it is logical to win a ton of money and then completely change your lifestyle.

The question wasnt would you give it to your close friend. It was would you give the person that sold you the ticket? Has nothing to do with changing your life style. It isnt the lottery But thank you anyway for taking the time to comment.

I think I would give the seller something, especially on a scratch off since I would know who the person was. Let's see, you win 20K, you get about 10K, pay off the credit card , pay the rest on my home equity loan. 20K sounds like a lot, but is not enough to make a real difference, at least in my life at this point, my savings are down to nothing, I am living on my home equity load and seeing if I can dip into my retirement plan while I wait for a paycheck to come in so I can see how much OT I will have to work to cover my bills. HHMM. 20 K would help, would be nice not to have that one credit card payment.

You aren't obligated to do this but if I did, I would give the person that sold me the ticket something. When our lottery was up to 340 million I joked around with the girl that sold me a ticket and said that if I won, I would buy her a new house. Of course she was rooting for me, needless to say, I didn't win LOL. If it's a small amount like $20.00 then tipping isn't something I'd consider, when I won $100.00 on a scratchie, I popped over to McDonald's and got her a salad and hamburger meal. She started telling me some stories about people that played huge amounts of money a day (and these were people that really couldn't afford it) and when they would hit a number or win something, they wouldn't give her anything. Your co-worker won $20,000.00, how hard would it have been to slip $100.00 in an envelope or get the seller a gift card. I believe in karma, what comes around goes around. Those are usually the people that you read about winning large sums of money then blowing it all and expecting people to feel sorry for them.

I feel exactly the same way as you do about this. I cannot believe that she did not give her a red cent. But as you can see her from the responses so far , it looks like most people wouldnt have. The lady at the store said it happens all the time that all people are not as kind hearted as some. I believe that if she sold me a ticket she gave me good luck in a way. Thanks for your response.

I would give something to the person who sold me the ticket. I'm not sure how much maybe like ten percent, so about 200 dollars. THere is a guy that comes into my work and gives the girls some money if he wins.
