  1. I don’t gamble either. Kind of sad. Seen some friends do some stupid sh** and lose a lot more than money. But since we’re poking fun, I snortled at “When your spouse tells you they’ll leave you if you don’t stop gambling and you reply, “I’ll TAKE that action”…”

    1. It’s funny… I know one of nearly every kind of addict there is; but, I don’t know any gambling addicts. My brother used to bet on the Super Bowl early in the season (for the best odds). One year, he won, and a friend was going down there so he asked him to cash in his bet.

      You can probably guess how that turned out…

      1. I only know one gambling addict. He gambled the deed to his house on the Tampa Bay/Eagles game in 2003. Lost his house and his wife. Granted that was the big “oh sh**” moment. Tough to watch that kind of mentality because after that fall, he spiraled.
