A North Carolina woman’s attempt to show her husband the lottery is a waste of money backfired in the sweetest possible way.
Glenda Blackwell, 57, bought a $10 Carolina Millions scratch-off ticket Saturday after her husband asked her to buy two Powerball tickets, according to WLOS. Blackwell said she got the Carolina Millions to teach him a lesson about wasting money on the lottery.
“I was going to be ugly and buy a scratch-off to show him they didn’t hit,” Blackwell said. “Sometimes I get aggravated with him, so I tell him, ‘You’re just wasting your money.’”
Instead of losing $10, Blackwell hit the jackpot, winning $1,000,000.
