I need some help and
Years ago I joined a staff
lottery in an 'important' household
(well in their opinion)
I left in 1998 and every new year I've sent off
my £52 subs.
I phone the cook for a news catch-up
once a year or so, and apart from
a smallish win in the early days
we haven't won a bean.
Any small wins have been ploughed back.
Now the lottery is going up to
£2 what do I do?
I could send the outstanding amount until the year end
and then call it a day.
The thought of sending off £104 every year
doesn't have the same appeal.
By the law of Sod, you can bet your bottom dollar
that they will then go on to win!
I ought to own up, the sole reason
for me being in the syndicate is to knock the family
off the tabloid front pages...
'So&So's staff lottery syndicate
win squillions of millions of quids'
Not altogether showing myself in a good light
I know; however perhaps you might feel the
same when you'd worked your socks off
for a paltry pittance.
