Compulsive Gambler Buckshot was a compulsive gambler, and would bet on anything and everything; horses, dogs, football, baseball, basketball, snooker and even soccer games. When Buckshot was down to his last dollar, he went to his best friend and said Roy, I need $1000, we have no food, I owe rent, the kids need jeans for school, and the wife wont leave the house because we have bad checks at all the stores. Can you help me out? So his best buddy gave him $2000 to get him ahead, but on one condition, that he does not use the money for gambling. Buckshots reply was Oh, I have money put away for that.
