I Actually Won Something

For those of you who don’t know, I tend be have bad luck. I’m just not one of those people who get lucky. Which made this a total shock to me. I wanted to wait until I got the check to post this, it was a bit surreal. Here’s what happened:

I was trying to qualify for a survey at Opinion Outpost, the survey would have been worth 25 points (equivalent of $2.50). I didn’t qualify for it though, and I chose the instant win option. Then instead of the same old “sorry you didn’t win this time, try again, blah, blah, blah” it said “I won.”

I couldn’t believe it. I had actually won something, $50 actually. I was so excited and cashed out for a $50 check, which arrived quite fast.

The funniest thing about this is that I had been thinking about doing a post on whether people ever really win these things or not. Guess that would seem kind of silly now. Anyways, I just wanted to let everybody know, that even if you are very unlucky (like me), you still have a chance. The only time you are guaranteed not to win or succeed, is when you don’t go for it.
