    Odd title I know but fitting for the moment. All day I've been badgered to add $5 to a payday pool. Kept putting it off, so finally at the closing bell I threw in my bit. I won!! No much, but enough to give me a smile - $125 CDN.

    I never win anything, so this is a big surprise.

    How is it for other's and luck? Any big windfalls out there?

    Found $1100 when I was 15.

    Closest I've ever come to winning any money.

    I did however win a company raffle 2 years ago. Bought 2 raffle tickets and won twice.

    A Winchester .243 and a Remington 12 gauge.

    Nope. Unlucky as two fucks, me.

    Was out for a drink with workmates one Friday last year. Got off the train. My house is like 3 minutes away from the station. Got about 50 yards up the road, turned the corner and got beat over the head with a bottle. Two fucking chavs beat the fuck out of me for no reason whatsoever.

    I was bleeding profusely from a head wound, broken collar bone, fractured wrist and 4 broken ribs.

    Left it until Monday to tell the cops. I was 12 hours outside the deadline for a criminal injuries claim. So I didn't get a bean.

    Cunts.

    I don't think it is about luck, its just timing and settings.
    There are moments where everything just cruises perfectly.
    project proposals, money, love, life etc.
    I have had my fair share.

    Well...maybe giving a gun AND ammo at the same time might not be a wise workplace act, especially in a post office.

    Well Skizo, I for one think that was one nifty gift. I guess it takes a goofy northerner to appreciate texas-style gifts!

    .243 is a good gun, very fast.
