Man forgets glasses, buys winning lottery ticket
Fairfield, Conn. — A man in southwestern Connecticut who mistakenly bought the wrong lottery ticket is $30,000 wealthier.
Bob Sabo, of Easton, says he didn’t want to wait in line to buy a lottery ticket at the Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield, so he decided to buy a ticket from a lottery vending machine — something he had previously never done.
Sabo says he meant to buy two $20 tickets, but says *he didn’t have his glasses on and instead bought a $30 ticket. When he got home, he discovered the ticket was a winner.
*(and he is clearly my kindred spirit)

went to buy my teaching partners a little something with a mexican flair as part of their holiday gifts. ole, ole, ole!
when i got home, actually put my glasses on, and went to wrap their gifts, i discovered that i had bought this.
when i gave them their gifts, they were not surprised and very understanding and said it had been a rough week and maybe firewater was more what they needed anyway. this is why we work well as a team.
