Lack of competence in his shameful profession showed a thief, who was stealing sunglasses from the car, and he did not think about taking a lottery ticket, which lay under them. This bizarre situation occurred in the United States of America.
You can talk about double luck of the owners of this ticket (coming from Seattle) worth a million dollars. Not only did they win a huge amount of money, but a fortunate thief left out their precious loot. An American couple left a Powerball coupon in their car for three months, forgetting about it completely. They did not even know they had won a million dollars. The ticket was purchased on February 10th, 2015 for the draw, which was to take place the next day. In this game, the jackpot prize was half a billion dollars! After the draw, the couple forgot to check their numbers... the ticket lay in the car and waited about to be discovered.
Best of all, even after they realized someone broke into their car, they did not check this ticket immediately, maybe they did not notice it all. The ticket was reviewed on the Internet on May 14. Of course, the owners were shocked to realize how close it was to lose this huge sum of money. A few weeks earlier, someone broke into their car and stole sunglasses. It was very close, and we congratulate the thief for a successful robbery. After receiving the prize, it was time to celebrate with champagne and plans to travel to Europe - France, and Ireland.
