Stop For Pizza, Play Lottery, Win $1M
This a pretty cool story, albeit with some ups and downs.
A 95-year-old mother falls and is taken to the hospital. She's eventually admitted for observation. So the family takes turns staying with her at the hospital. As one family member shows up, her son leaves to get some food.
He stops at a restaurant and finds out they'll stop serving in about 5 minutes.
He heads to another place which is closed.
The next stop is a "Casey's" convenience store which also sells pizza. He orders a $10 pizza and buys a few Powerball tickets while waiting.
All of this somewhat bad luck meant good things, because one of the lottery tickets he bought was a big winner...to the tune of $1,000,000. After tax, he'll walk away with $700,000.
