Response 2: Money can’t buy happiness, but I’d like to try

“Remember I told you last Saturday that a genie granted me a wish?”  Ted said while jumping up and down.  “Well I’ve only gone and done it!”  “What?” I questioned I hadn’t a clue what he was talking about.  “That genie, I said yeah, yeah I wish all six of my lottery numbers can come up next Saturday, well I’ve only gone and done it!  Look, I’ve won”  “Bloody hell Ted you’re right, come on what do you do now?”

Ted and I rang Camelot to confirm, yes he had won!  He now had to wait for the exact figure.  “It was a rollover Steve, it must be at least 5 million, I’ll see you right, don’t you worry” Camelot called back, yes he had won, but so had 5895 other people, the jackpot was £5,843,368 shared between 5896 people, he had won £990.90.  “Ah well, your round Ted.”

  1. Liked the twist in this tale. Makes you wonder how many people said Genie spoke to that week...
