The North Carolina woman had always given her husband a lot of crap for spending so much money on lottery tickets over the years, so when her hubby asked the 57-year-old to get two Powerball tickets last weekend, she took matters into her own hands!
Instead of getting her husband exactly what he wanted, she decided to buy a single $10 Carolina Millions scratch-off ticket to show her husband that no one ever wins!
The only problem was, when Glenda went to scratch off the ticket, she ended up winning $1,000,000 — or $415,503 after taxes!
"I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating. So, I was very happy."
The best part about the whole story though? The big winner admitted this is the FIRST time she and her husband haven't had to worry about money, saying:
"We've struggled a lot, so now we can buy our own home and our own land. It'll be paid for and I don't have to worry about that no more. So, that's what I plan to do with some of the money and the other part I plan to help my daughter and to put money up for my two granddaughters for college."
We sure think Glenda is spending her winnings the right way! Plus she admitted she won't be buying any more lottery tickets! That's what we call beginner's luck!
If you hit the jackpot, what would YOU spend the money on??
