The idiot who broke into a car for a pair of sunglasses and left a lottery ticket behind! LOL

 

A $1 million Powerball ticket went unnoticed by a Seattle couple — and a thief — for three months in the couple’s car before they realized its worth.

The couple bought the ticket from Iman’s Deli-Market in Ballard on Feb. 10, the day before the $500 million jackpot drawing, according to a Washington’s Lottery news release. They didn’t check the ticket right away.

When they finally did check, on May 14, they realized they were millionaires, according to the release. They won a second-tier prize, not the big jackpot.

The ticket had survived a close call a few weeks earlier; someone had broken into their car and stolen a pair of sunglasses, which were sitting atop of the winning ticket.

Other than trips to Iceland and Paris, the new millionaires plan to use their winnings for something a little less extravagant: taking care of their house.
