The obstacles in me playing the lottery is making me think I should play!

I've always had this feeling that I will win the lottery. I don't know why.

I played for years and never won as much as a tenner so gave up.

A few years back this really strong feeling came back as well as some weird dreams and a sinister looking character pulling numbers out of a box and laughing manically at me.

I went to buy a lottery ticket and the shop was shut (unusually). Drove to a different shop and my car broke down. I gave up.

Last year the feeling and more weird dreams came back. I joined lottery online but when I went to buy a ticket it kept saying my email address had two accounts attached to it so I couldn't log in. Tried to ring them and my phone connection died. I gave up.

Today the feeling is back and I feel physically sick with it. The numbers are in my head and everything. Tried to log in again and same issue with email but now they have a live chat thing. I spoke to someone, gave all the details and she said "I have your account details here, could you just confirm your date of birth?". I typed it in and the fucking thing crashed!!!! NOW it's saying chat is unavailable.

WTF?? I feel like I'm in the Truman Show. I'm going to stop off at shop tonight to try and buy one but what's the betting something else goes wrong?

AIBU to feel even more determined to play considering how much something is clearly trying to stop me??

Maybe it's the sprite trying to save you money

I think you might be succumbing to some sort of psychosis.
" Something trying to stop me?"

Don't know what to say really! If you win let us know please smile

You certainly earned 10/10 for sheer persistence!

well this is the strangest thing I've heard all day and it had stiff competition.

I think recurring dreams/nightmares are common...I think not managing to buy a lottery ticket when you set out to is pretty odd...but shit happens.

I'd try a bit harder...get your numbers and when you don't win, you'll know for the future!

If you're serious I think you're more urgently in need of a dr's appt than a lotto ticket.

There is a fantastic real case about a lottery win from a few years ago. It goes something like this:
A was a waiter in B's restaurant.
A is a firm believer in fate and all things spooky.
B is not very nice.
A has a dream that he enters the lottery with B and they win.
A believes his dream is a vision.
A goes to work and tells B and asks him if they can buy a ticket together.
B gives A half the money, A goes to the shop and buys the ticket. To show B that he can trust him, A puts the ticket in the restaurant till (or gives it to B for safekeeping, can't remember which now).
They win!!!!! Something in the region of £1m.
B denies there was ever any agreement, says he paid for the ticket and has it in his possession, claims the money and tells A to naff off.
A is a bit cross with B so sues him.
And wins.
Happy ending.
