We all run out to get our tickets when the lottery jackpots get high.
We figure we’ll take a chance and maybe our couple dollars will turn into something we always dreamed of; even if it’s only the consolation prize of a few thousand or a couple dollars for getting some of the numbers.
Well one grandmother, Maria Carreiro, 51, of Toronto, thought she had won $40,000 in Ontario’s lottery, until she shared the news with her daughter.
The Portuguese immigrant’s daughter looked it up on the computer and found that her mom had made a small error, according to CNN International. Carreiro said her daughter said to her: ” ‘Mommy, you’re $40 million richer” before she ran off barefoot to the store.
