My One in a Million

There are many things you have a 1 in a million chance for, and I'm guessing you only get one or so in a lifetime. So good news - I'm hopefully not going to get some strange disease that only 1 person in a million gets, or die in some weird one in a million freak accident. Unfortunately I'm probably also not going to win the lottery (my chances are quite low anyway seeing as we don't buy the tickets, sigh), or get some great one in a million prize, because I was the one in a million today.

I called Centrelink to make a correction. I allowed myself the usual 20 minutes of hold time before they answer, and then another 10-15 for them to realise what I'm talking about and fix it (I talk to these people waaay too often!). Once the machine had finished talking to me, I sat in my 'on hold' spot, with Solitaire at my fingertips, only to have the phone picked up immediately!! I didn't even go on hold at all! AND the guy didn't put me on hold to fix my problem, I just waited like, half a second and it was done! It was incredible! One in a million!!

And that's why I'll never win the lotto.
