woman-teaches-husband-gambling-lessonGlenda Blackwell was tired of her husband spending money on scratchoff tickets. So she decided to teach him a lesson about gambling, only to end up winning a $1 million payout in the process.

Blackwell was going to make a point by showing that scratchoff tickets don’t win. But she was actually the one proven wrong in the nicest of ways.

“I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating,” Blackwell told ABC affiliate WLOS-TV in Asheville North Carolina. “So, I was very happy.”

Blackwell’s husband, Buddy, asked her to buy two Powerball tickets at an Asheville convenience store. But rather than buying the tickets that her husband wanted, she “taught him a lesson” by purchasing a $10 Carolina Millions scratchoff ticket.

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

But she was amazed after scratching off the ticket and revealing a seven-figure payout. Glenda and Buddy Blackwell will take the lump sum of $415,503 after taxes.

“We’ve struggled a lot, so now we can buy our own home and our own land,” said Blackwell. “It’ll be paid for and I don’t have to worry about that.”
