It just so happens that every once in a while people are dealt a good dose of Karma that they deserve. A man in New Zealand missed out on purchasing a winning $1 million lotto because he cut his way into line. The man he cut in line didn’t make a big deal out of his impatience and was rewarded big time.
On his way home from work, the Lotto player, purchased a ticket from Pak N Save Papamoa, the New Zealand Herald reports. That’s when fortune turned in his favor.
“I was waiting in line at the Lotto shop and a customer nipped in front of me,” the Lotto winner said in a statement released by Lotto New Zealand. “I wasn’t in any hurry, so I just let them go ahead and didn’t say anything. I guess good karma pays off.”
Once the lucky lotto numbers were announced, it took the man a few days to realize he was the winner.
After winning, the man said he was so shocked that he forget to mention it to his wife.
“My mind went blank,” he said. “I wasn’t thinking properly, so I just put the ticket away and went to work as usual.”
The winner and his wife are now planning to buy a house with the money they won.
