Re Peter Principle: The winner looses all – well, not all

Talking about Peter Principle makes me think of the first time I bought a lottery scratch ticket at my trusted newsstand. I don’t know why I did it. It was an impulse buy.

The guy at the newsstand said: “Ok, scratch me rich!” and smiled.

So I scratched – and I won 10,- Euros!

What do you say now?” I asked triumphantly cashing the 10,-

Now I’m sure you will be scratching me rich. You just lost more money than you might imagine.

The newstand guy went out of business, but I bought lots of lottery scratch tickets eleswhere – never winning anything again.

So I won myself out of a lot of money there.
