A North Carolina woman was trying to teach her husband a lesson on the wastefulness of lottery when she ended winning a life-changing amount that made her eat her words in delight.
It happens once in a lifetime, but a scenario which involved the 57-year-old Glenda Blackwell from Leicester N.C. would definitely make quite a blockbuster.
This North Carolina grandma spent little over $10 to buy a scratch-off lottery ticket as she intended to teach her husband a lesson and prove that his lottery spending was wasteful.
Glenda’s husband asked his loved one to buy him two Powerball tickets and she thought buying scratch-offs will teach him a lesson.
Instead of making a point to her hubby Buddy, Glenda ended up winning a cool $1 million from a Carolina Millions ticket she picked at the local Leicester Suttles Quik Mart.
“I was going to be ugly and buy a scratch-off to show him they didn’t hit and to prove he is just wasting his money.”
“I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating”, Blackwell enthusiastically told WLOS.
The lucky winner was given a choice between a $415,503 worth of a single payment after taxes of 20 yearly installments in excess of $50,000, but Glenda decided to cash in as she isn’t sure how long she’ll live.
North Carolina grandma is planning on buying a home for her family and helping her two granddaughters with their college education.
