(CNN) A North Carolina woman set out to teach her husband a lesson about the lottery. Instead she was the one who got schooled.

 

Glenda Blackwell of Leicester was tired of her husband wasting money on lottery tickets. On Saturday, he asked her to buy him some Powerball tickets. She bought a $10 Carolina Millions scratch-off ticket instead.

 

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


Well maybe she should get aggravated at him more often. That scratch-off ticket she bought out of spite was a $1 million winner.
I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating,” Blackwell. “So, I was very happy.

 

Blackwell picked the lump sum option — $415,503 after taxes — which she will use to buy a home and some land, help out her daughter and put money away for college for her two granddaughters.
