Woman says rude customer led to windfall

Connecticut LotteryConnecticut Lottery: Woman says rude customer led to windfall

A New Milford, Connecticut supermarket cashier says a rude customer turned out to be worth $25,000 to her.

Loretta Morris says a disgruntled customer who asked for a $5 scratch-off lottery ticket last Tuesday told her to "stick the ticket" when he was asked for an ID.

Morris says she took the ticket back and at the end of her shift, she decided to just buy the ticket instead of putting it back and having a loose ticket in the store.

She took it home and after scratching off the little present and Christmas tree, found she had won $25,000.

Morris, who never plays the lottery, says she has always been courteous to everyone.

    True, but keeping one's mouth shut is wise with all the lawsuits these days.

        You can't go though life being mean to people.  It'll come back and slam you in the you know what.  Even though I don't get the,"show ID" part for purchasing tickets.

          Needed to check the customer's age.
