The lottery is always granted to some random country bumpkin or rich asshole who buys 1,000 tickets, lucky for this McDonald’s employee – she won the biggest jackpot in lotto history, but now she refuses to share it with her participating employees.
Employee Mirlande Wilson … says she bought her winning numbers with her own money — not the $75 her coworkers pulled together to purchase tickets in the recent Mega Millions lotto drawing. Over a dozen of her fellow Mickey Dees employees claim they forked over five dollars a pop to have Wilson purchase tickets for the store, but the alleged winner claims that the lucky numbers were bought in a separate transaction using her own money. Now with Wilson standing to rake in over $100 million, the rest of the McDonald’s crew are left cynical and suspicious and are demanding that they be divvied up their share of the prize.
“She can’ t do this to us!” shift manager Suleiman Osman Husein tells the New York Post. Husein says 15 members of the staff at the Maryland McDonald’s pooled in cash towards the big jackpot, and they are now outraged that Wilson stands to take home millions and leave her coworkers sulking in their red polyester uniforms.
“We each paid $5. She took everybody’s money!” insists Husein.
The lotto reached an all-time high and we will forever hate the three winners and 17 second place winners. What were we expecting though? The odds are greater of getting struck by lightning - just as this guy.
A Wichita man was hit by lightning on Thursday night just hours after buying three tickets in the record-setting $656 Mega Millions lottery, drawn on Friday.Bill Isles, a volunteer storm spotter for the National Weather Service, even made an eerie quip to a pal about his long odds moments after buying the tickets at a local grocery store.”I’ve got a better chance of getting struck by lightning” than winning the jackpot, Isles said, according to Reuters.
The wannabe mega-millionaire had toted his ham radio into his backyard to check for storm activity at around 9:30 p.m. when a towering bolt of lightning slammed into the ground nearby.
