Yes, it did happen on April Fools' Day, but was no joke, It did happen. I suppose because it of the date, the store was slow to respond, believing it might be a joke.

 

 

It is now a legal case, so the lawyers will win it in the end!

 

A TESCO worker at the centre of a legal row with her employer over a winning €500,000 lottery ticket was not at work yesterday.

Andrea O'Reilly (26), from Navan, Co Meath accidentally issued the ticket to a customer and later claimed it as her own.

She said she had planned to pay for the €9 lottery ticket, but was prevented from doing so by her employer.

Ms O'Reilly now plans to sue her employer.

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    If she wanted to claim it as her own all she had to do was put the money in the till and the ticket in her pocket when she had it in her hand.

    If she wanted it after it won... well yeah, so do I.

    Let's make this a class action lawsuit!
