Wife's lottery lesson fails... to the tune of $1M

Posted: Updated:
North Carolina (KWWL) -

A woman wants to teach her husband a lesson about wasting money, but it backfires... in the best way imaginable.

The woman's husband asked her to buy 2 Powerball tickets for him in North Carolina.

She said she wanted to make a point that the tickets are a waste of money so she bought a $10 scratch-off ticket instead and was not expecting to win.

The ticket was a $1 million winner.

They took the lump sum of $415,000 after taxes.

She says she plans to buy a home with that money and set up an account to pay for college for her grandchildren.
