Cashier Sells $1 Million Lottery Ticket in Error
A Louisiana man came across a million reasons to thank an absent minded cashier who sold him a $1 million lottery ticket by mistake. Ironically, the cashier has the same last name and lives in the same town as the man she sold the ticket to.
Robert Thibodaux Sr., 70, bought the lottery ticket that should have won $200,000 from cashier, Jamie Thibodaux, who sold him a power-play option in error. Thus, Thibodaux ended up netting Thibodaux $1 million.
Robert Thibodaux did in fact promise the cashier that he would return to the store should the ticket win and reward her, reported UPI.com.
Thibodaux reportedly returned to the store after collecting his money from Louisiana Lottery headquarters Thursday and wrote the cashier a check for an undisclosed amount.
“You made me a millionaire. That being said, I have a check for you,” he told the cashier.
