Oops! I won Powerball
A woman had enough of her husband buying lottery tickets, and to prove to him that it was a total waste of money, she purchased a buys lottery ticket with one thing in mind – a money waster of note!
When Glenda Blackwell’s husband asked his wife to buy him two Powerball lottery tickets while she was out, the 57-year-old told her husband Buddy he was a fool.
‘Sometimes I get aggravated with him, so I tell him, ‘You’re just wasting your money,” she said.
To prove her point for once and for all, Glenda bought a $10 scratchcard, to show him face to face that don’t come anywhere close and that it was a total rip-off.
It backfired big time, when the one she bought on Saturday turned out to be a winner for A MILLION DOLLARS!
‘I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating,’ said Glenda. ‘So, I was very happy.’
Her lump sum came to $415,503, or around £339,503, after tax.
With their family struggling with money problems, they are now finally in a position to buy their own house, she said, adding that the unexpected windfall would also help pay for her two granddaughters to go to college.
All the best!
