Here is a little bit of my friend's conversation with this person...
My Friend: When does the confetti fall from the ceiling?
Lottery Employee: What confetti, sir?
My Friend: There should be confetti that falls from the ceiling when a big winner like me comes around. Come on, where is it?
Lottery Employee: (No answer. Just a dead blank stare. She cuts my friend a check who then studies the check very closely for a full minute.)
My Friend: Oh, this can't be right.
Lottery Employee: What do you mean?
My Friend: This check is too small.
Lottery Employee: No, sir, it is for $20,000...exactly the amount you won.
My Friend: No, I mean, the check is too small. Where is the big check, the huge one that I have to carry with two hands?
Lottery Employee: What?
My Friend: You know, that 4 foot long one.
Lottery Employee: That is only for ceremonies.
My Friend: Is there a suggestion box around here? I think you guys should make some changes...
I was cracking up when my friend told me this story, but can you image how soul crushing it must be to sit behind a counter all day and just hand out lottery winning?
So what does this have to do with chess? Well...nothing, really.
