Glenda Beckwell of Leicester, North Carolina was trying to teach her husband a lesson. He asked her to pick up some Powerball tickets, but she hated the idea of wasting all that money on the Lottery, so she came home with a solitary scratcher instead to show the pointlessness of it all.

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

But she had to take it all back because that scratcher was a $1 million dollar winner. "I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating," Blackwell. "So, I was very happy."

A stank attitude and the right stunt really can pay off! Take your rightful place among the Gods, Glenda Beckwell...
