@stardustintheeyes:  hmmm I’m not really lucky but I did win meet and greet with Beyonce! I won some movie tickets at my company’s Christmas lunch. That’s about it.

I think I missed out on the lucky gene. I only have one story where I won something. I was a little kid in a department store with my parents. There was a jar of jelly beans and like a moth to a flame, off I go towards it.

People could guess how many jelly beans were in the jar for a chance to win a prize. I guessed, and I won. I was so excited because I thought I won the jelly beans. Instead, my parents won a new sofa. I was beyond disappointed but I guess it still counts as winning (and they still have the sofa).

@stardustintheeyes:  Either I’m super lucky or I listen to a radio station that no one else listens to because I’ve won:




Rascall Flats tickets
Kenny Chesney 2nd Row Tickets
Lady Antebellum tickets and meet and greets
2 tickets to the local auto show
and from another place 4 tickets to the local auto show


Oh and some artist I “like” on Facebook randomly drew my name for a free art print.

Yep. A wedding on Ebay for $10,000. Pretty lucky, I’d say!

Won one of five $500 visa cards at my office Christmas party which was awesome, and I’ve won some smaller things as well. I always say “I never win anything” but I think I’ve actually had some good luck.

I won an oversized Toblerone bar in grade 5 at an assembly. I disliked them a lot, so I gave it away to the kid sitting next to me.

I would say I’m very unlucky when it comes to draws and things of that nature.

Yes, a few times, but nothing amazing.

My Fiance is the lucky one though. He wins like every raffle he’s entered. It’s kinda weird since I don’t believe in luck.

@stardustintheeyes:  I’ve won fair tickets a couple of times and a few concert tickets (no one famous). When I worked for a hospitality company I used to win free wine, restaurant certificates and over night stays all the time…that was nice.

My uncle entered a raffle for a local charity last year and with $20.00 won a new Gucci Fiat. He is 78 years old and drives that little thing around town.

@MrsPanda99:  Ha. Not for me but for my daughter. Turns out it wasn’t a scam, but a cancelled wedding they were looking to rebook so as to not take the loss. I guess lots of people thought it wasn’t real, and no one bid against me.
