A guy in North Carolina named Earnest Jones took his wife Linda out to breakfast for her 67th birthday on Sunday.
And on their way back home, he bought her a $20 lottery ticket. Not the most romantic gift. But hey, it’s something.
Unfortunately, she didn’t win anything. But he also bought one for himself . . . which kind of makes it NOT really a birthday present.
But he still got to be a hero in the end, because his ticket hit for a HUNDRED GRAND. And he says that “OF COURSE,” he’s spending it on her.
They got their giant check the very next day. After taxes, they took home just over $70,000.
(Here’s a photo of them with their giant check.)
