WINNING STREAK!


Here at work....we have an "oldies" station that we listen to most of the time. They run contests frequently...I seem to have a good luck streak with winning their contests...Every morning, they have a trivia question, you have to name the month/year of said trivia question...then periodically they run a contest, called the "money monkey"...where if you hear the monkey screech...call in, be caller number 9...you win roughly around $100.....they also run the secret sound contest as well..where they play a snippet of a "sound"...that sound may be anything, like door shutting, coins into a slot, you get the picuture..

Well, over the past year, I have won a half dozen times...the secret sound and the trivia question. 2 weeks ago I won the trivia question...scoring free Pizza Hut pizza ,tickets to a couple different shows in the area...i.e..antique/Christmas shows.....I lost the coupon for free pizza, didn't make to either of the shows I had tickets for...so, winning that go round..was a waste...due to the fact that you can only win one time per month...

Well, last Friday....I hear the money monkey screech...I picked up the phone, started dialing, never expecting to get through...little long win...guess what? I won...and I had to lie...I gave my co-workers name, while she was laughing and sribbling down her information..while I pretended to be her with the d.j..I told her as I was dialing, I would have to pretend to be her, if I got through, I would split the prize with her.....she picks the money up tomorrow...on top of winning the money, she automatically gets registered for a drawing for a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic...




all expenses paid.

The Quandry I face...I called, I acutally won the money, registering for the trip...in her name...Watch her win the freaking trip!....I get to stay here and enjoy the $50 I won from the split..eating the pizza I won, honestly, from the trivia win last week...if I find the coupon I lost...

Wouldn't the trip be for two? Then you could go together.... wow, you are lucky. All radio station phone numbers are blocked at our work; which I can see why. When they had a particularly popular contest for money, the number of calls from employees actually brought the phone system down one day.... NOT a good thing for a hospital. I was on vacation that day, but I can totally agree with the decision to block the stations from work phones.

I never win anything! My wife wins things all the time! It is just that way I guess!

Congrats on your repeated wins!

I can't believe you won the wrong prize. If your co-worker wins the trip, maybe she'll take you with her.

Maureen...Yeah, I could see where that would be a problem working for a hospital....everything goes through a switchboard...here where I work, it's a small office with direct phone lines..everyone is pretty laid back here, as far as management goes..they actually encourage it, so it's all good.

Bradley....I used to never win anything either, but for some reason, I am just lucky with this particular radio station.

Daddy-O..I can't believe it..I am the only one I know to have such unlucky luck! Nah...if my co-worker wins....we are not that close, so, I doubt that she would offer to take me...besides, I don't think I could have a good time with her, compared to my hubby....know what I mean?
She did say, if she won, she might just give the trip to me, because she probably couldn't leave her kids to go....so, we'll see...
Have great day everyone!

Kim said...

That is awesome! I never win anything. I think I have bad luck. lol

Nap Warden said...

Ain't that just the way! If she wins the trip, she better be takin' you!

DWS was awesome last night! Your man Helio is totally goin' all the way!

Ellinghouse, Kim and Nap....
I think if she wins the trip, we should auction it off on ebay and split the proceeds! lol....

Nap..Dancing with the Stars was awesome....Helio is definitely going to make it to the finals..if he doesn't...I will never be the same, as far as this show goes.

Rachel said...

LOL!!!
I never win anything, but it would be just my luck to win and have to use someone else's name and then they'd win the biggie.. what a conundrum! Well, good luck to you, or her.. or whomever!!
LOL! Thanks for the giggle.

Lori- Fairytales & Margaritas said...

Wow! I never get through. I hope she wins and takes you!

DIXIECHICK said...

DIXIECHICK said...
