    Should customers buying massive amounts of lotto have to wait?

    Do people buying lottery tickets have the right to tie up the line at convenience stores.  It can be aggravating waiting for people to check numerous tickets and then buy a bunch more, while other customers who stopped in for "the convenience" line-up stressing out the clerk.  We have the right to buy lotto of course  but should massive buyers have to wait until line-ups are taken care of?

    First come first served. If a great deal of time is needed to serve the lotto customer and other customers are too impatient to wait, they do have a choice - go to another store.

    Proper etiquette would be, once the initial purchase has been paid for, the purchaser should step aside. If they find they have winning tickets, they can get back in line to collect they're winnings or make a new purchase.

    I dont like it either and the problem isnt that they are just being a customer like everyone else. They are just like children who buy candy and the clerk gives them change and of course they want to buy more candy with the change. The same thing with lotto and scratch tickets. They will buy the scratch tickets, then win something and want to buy some more. I hope that they start using some kind of automated vending machine where they can buy their tickets without tying everyone up.
