DC Lottery Reader Disappointments

I hate this little electric box. I hate it with all my soul. Every week I put my lottery card in this blue devil, and ever week I get the same talk back:

Sorry Not A Winner

What injustice. What bullshit. What cosmic conspiracy! Doesn’t the DC Lottery know that I am trying to be a DC homeowner?

Do you know how tough it is to get $50,000 together for a down payment? Or cover $15,000 in closing costs? Or start all the utility deposits needed to occupy a residence?

If I win, if one day this box says “You Are A Winner!” I promise to do good, do right, better my fellow man. First act? Buy and close Max’s Mexican Paradise.

    Dude, try ACORN housing, they can help you get a great loan without a down payment. You just have to go to a class. http://acornhousing.org/TEXT/wwa.php

    My fiance and I did it and my brother and his wife did it. It is a wonderful opportunity.

    Wayan, I think you should try earning some extra money by joining that drumming crew down by Gallery Placce. Or maybe break dancing in the subway. We don’t have enough of that stuff in DC.

    Forget the down payment, I was hoping to win the lottery so I could pay cash for the whole house!

    You can’t put a price on Lauriol Plaza. They’d never sell to the likes of you! And if they did, where would I go to eat fajitas and drink delicious margaritas?

    Please, buy the Malaysian dump across the street and open up Lauriol Plaza II instead.
