This story from Yahoo! News reminds me of the time that I worked in retail. I was in the computer department of a B. Dalton Bookstore and it was around Christmas time. The store was buzzing because we had heard a rumor that there were holiday bonuses in our future.
To make a long story short, we ended up getting these scratch off tickets. I “won” a bookmark, which I found ironic because the scratch off ticket was long like a bookmark. I figured it was redundant to trade it in so I kept it. (I quit a short time later.)
