They must have hope, invariably!

The street lottery seller is aware that he is “selling hope”. That’s the trade he is into and it’s the same for him and those who buy it from him. He doesn’t know which ticket will win. He walks his neighbor-hood, he knows people and people know him. He jokes and comments and circulates daily news. So he is bound by community customs and ethics. Μost people buy lottery
tickets when they feel hopeful and lucky. One told us that he once won a lot. He bought a hotel for his brothers. And they left him on the street.
