I'm a bad girl.

Years ago, I 'won' a prize from the company I worked for. I went to a certain place, entered a draw and knew I was gonna win.
My friend and I won a holiday to Majorca and had the best time of our life.
Apparantly, my comopany wanted winners that would look good on an advert.
Only now, later in life, I realise I was a bit of a pooh and took this 'prize' off someone who really did enter Embarassed

(In my own defence, no one paid to enter, it was a free draw)

The thing about the BBC (and other TV phone-in competitions) is they are not free.

I think this is the start of a whole can of worms relating to a whole host of phone to win competitions .... and even phone to vote a winner/looser.

You need to alter the title to this thread. The prizes weren't fake, the 'winners' were.

And there's me thinking that under noraml competition rules employees were banned from entering competitions, unless they were in house. I want my license fee back. Heads should roll. Crying or Very sad

As a branch manager of a well known bookshop/stationers chain in NZ I was told by my twattish area manager to rig a prize draw by taping the 'winning' entry to the inside lid of the cardboard box the entries were stored in - he didn't want someone to win cash as a prize (they could name their prize up to a certain value) as that would be less newsworthy than a new bike/parachuting etc etc.
Oops - I mucked up and drew a real winner Very Happy trouble is she wanted cash and was rather snippy when we didn't have it to hand. She doesn't know how lucky she was!
I quit a few months later. The area manager is still a twat..

^^^ You know, I guess it is just me, but if I didn't want to give out cash as a prize, I wouldn't offer it. Like I said that is just me I guess.

When I 'won' my prize, I had to assure everyone involved that I would never reveal that I worked for the company. The entry tickets did have a paragraph stating that if you woked or were associated with the company then you couldn't enter, but I didn't enter with a ticket...
