Man Pretends To Be Blind And Asks People To Check His Lottery Ticket, But Why?

As much as we wish everyone was honest and straightforward, the sad truth is that there are very few people who generally merit our trust as rest of them actually turn out to be untrue and henceforth they don't deserve our trust. And when it comes to trusting the strangers, we tend to make a lot of assumptions based on shallow factors.

Let's see what response he got!
