Michigan Man's Girlfriend Told Him Not To Buy Lotto Tickets, So He Did It Anyway And Won A Million Dollars
ABC- A man is now $1 million richer despite the advice given to him by his girlfriend.
The man, who chose to remain anonymous, won the money on a scratch-off lottery ticket he bought at a Michigan gas station.
"I stopped to get gas and the pump didn't print out a receipt so I grabbed a couple of $5 winning tickets and went inside the store," the man told the Michigan Lottery. "On my way in, my girlfriend told me not to buy any lottery tickets, but I didn't listen. I bought one 50X The Cash ticket and paid for it with my two $5 winners."
Knowing he might get in trouble for buying the ticket against his girlfriend's wishes, he kept it hidden from her all day until he finally got a moment to himself.
"I scratched the ticket in the bathroom and thought I was having a heart attack when I saw it was a $1 million winner," the man told the Michigan Lottery. "I showed the ticket to my parents and neither of them believed me. We immediately went to the computer to look the game up online and read the instructions again. That's when it finally started to sink in that I had won big."
After taxes, he'll take home a one-time lump sum payment of $634,517. That's enough money, he said, to take his girlfriend on the European dream vacation they've always talked about.
And there we have it, the biggest win for men in the history of gender relations. Women love telling men what to do, and we love to ignore them and do it anyway. However, 90% of the time it turns out they were right. Whether it's 'put the seat down', or 'do the dishes', or ' don't show up drunk to my grandmother's funeral', life as a taken man is all about being told what you can and can't do. Well guess what, every time you fell in the toilet (that can't seriously happen right?), or had to scrap old ketchup off a dinner plate, or had to peel your blacked out boyfriend off a neighboring tombstone, they all pale in comparison to potentially missing out on a million dollars. A 7 figure pay out is enough to cover up a lot of wrongs in a relationship. Hell, first thing he should do with the winnings is write up $100/month contract for his girlfriend to no longer have an opinion on anything. Can't imagine she would be too outspoken after that anyway, but women are a stubborn breed. Talk about having an upper hand in a relationship. Now not only do you have all the money, but you also have the power to veto an of her decisions. It's hard to argue with results. Every time his significant other was right all it got them was a headache or two, every time he was right it got them financial security.I'm not sure there is an expression date on that bargaining chip.
P.S. Of course the woman is wrong and still ends up getting her dream vacation out of it. The power of the pussy knows no bounds.
