Losers R Us

My middle brother, Jarrod (23), has always been very... uh... well... greedy. He’s very focused on money. Always has been, likely always will be.

My mother bought some of those gag scratch off lottery tickets. The ones that always win.

She gave one to Jarrod. He put it aside and said he’d scratch it later. I heard about this from Jarrod while we were on the way to lil bro’s graduation.

When he scratched it off he “won” $5,555.00. Jarrod just about crapped. He was jumping up and down, screaming, He ran into the yard, told his neighbors, called his dad, wife, and his drinking buddies.

He then flipped it over to see where he could redeem it. “Must redeem in person at Losers R Us, 124 Sucker St, In Your Dreams, CA”

He was not a very good sport about it. It was ALL he could talk about on the drive to and from the graduation. He’ll never live it down.

  • I'd have to say that would make me cry. Does that make me greedy? LOL

  • You know i could not take a joke like that, it would be too much. Hope your weekend goes well. Strange i used to foster a small boy called jarrod years ago and have never heard the name since its not popular here

  • That is totally BRILLIANT!!!

    But then again I'm just evil enough to play that joke on someone *whistles*

  • I have to say that people that are like that are the best ones to play that sort of joke on because they wouldn't find it funny at all, which just makes that much funnier for everyone else!!!!!
