Woman Wins $1 Million Trying to Prove to Her Husband Wrong

Woman wins a whopping $1 million trying to prove her husband wrong. In a bid to show her husband that purchasing lottery tickets was a waste of time, a North Carolina woman unwittingly won a massive $1 million jackpot. Glenda Blackwell from Leicester was asked by her husband to purchase Powerball tickets for the weekend draw while she was at the store. Having had arguments about how lotteries were a waste of money, Blackwell decided to finally teach her husband a lesson by instead buying a $10 Carolina Millions scratch-off ticket. If you're a little confused as to how buying a different ticket was supposed to teach him a lesson, you're not alone. In her own words, Blackwell stated that "I was going to be ugly and buy a scratch off to show him they didn't hit," She's continued, "Sometimes I get aggravated with him, so I tell him, 'You're just wasting your money.'"
