Wife Tries Proving To Husband The Lottery Is A Waste Of Money, Accidentally Wins

There’s something about the lottery that husbands enjoy playing. Maybe it’s the fact that it makes their drive home a little longer so they can stop off and buy a possible winning ticket. Maybe it’s the fantasy that is keeping their hopes alive. For one husband, buying a scratch off ticket was becoming a daily ritual and his wife wanted to prove to him that he was wasting more of their money than he could possibly ever win.

That lesson however took a twist when the wife bought a scratch off ticket on her own to prove that now they were both wasting their hard earned money. But her ticket actually ended up winning the couple $1,000,000. Holy. Shit.

57-year-old Glenda Blackwell of North Carolina told the press that she did it to essentially nag her husband. And it paid off.

“I was going to be ugly and buy a scratch off to show him they didn’t hit. Sometimes I get aggravated with him, so I tell him, ‘You’re just wasting your money.'”

Mr. Blackwell can be thankful his wife felt like turning up the sass a little bit that day because now they both can finally afford seperate bedrooms because we imagine he’s just tired of hearing her harp on the activities he clearly enjoys doing. God bless that $10 Carolina Millions scratch off.

Unfortunately thanks to Uncle Sam, the Blackwells are only taking $415,503 of that million. Fucking shit, Sam! The NC Education Lottery asked the Blackwells if they preferred a yearly sum of $50,000 or just the whole lot. Glenda opted for the entire bulk because she says she has health issues and may not live long enough to see it all.

“We’ve struggled a lot, so now we can buy our own home and our own land. It’ll be paid for and I don’t have to worry about that no more. So, that’s what I plan to do with some of the money and the other part I plan to help my daughter and to put money up for my two granddaughters for college.”
