FAIRFIELD, Conn. (CBS/AP) — 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.
The store will receive $300 from CT Lottery for selling the top prize-winning ticket.
A misdialed number resulted in a phenomenal stroke of luck for a Roseville couple. A woman made an appointment for her husband at at Joseph Anthony Salon in Rocklin. One problem: He forgot what his appointment was.
She reluctantly got on the phone and dialed what she thought was the number. She didn’t get a salon on the other end of the line. It turns out she called the local number for a nationwide Internet radio contest with The Kiss 101, and she had no idea what she was talking about. All she knew was the 15th caller and won a trip to the Bahamas.
