South Carolina "Education" Lottery

A co-worker went to buy some Powerball tickets today at lunch.  We have a group of ten people who’ve each contributed $5 towards the cause.  Add last week’s meager $7 in winnings and you have $57 worth of quick picks.

The transaction went something like this:

Co-worker:  Yes, I’d like fifty-seven quick picks please.

Cashier:  Wow, that’s gonna be like, sixty dollars.

Co-worker:  Actually, it will be fifty-seven dollars.

Cashier pauses, types information into lottery machine, and in a surprised voice says: “You’re right!”
