A Guy Hit the Lottery for $100,000 on His Wife’s Birthday, and Says He’s Spending It on Her

A guy in North Carolina named Earnest Jones took his wife Linda out to breakfast for her 67th birthday on Sunday.

And on their way back home, he bought her a $20 lottery ticket.  Not the most romantic gift.  But hey, it’s something.

Unfortunately, she didn’t win anything.  But he also bought one for himself . . . which kind of makes it NOT really a birthday present.

But he still got to be a hero in the end, because his ticket hit for a HUNDRED GRAND.  And he says that “OF COURSE,” he’s spending it on her.

They got their giant check the very next day.  After taxes, they took home just over $70,000.
