Woman With Atrocious Memory Buys Two Lottery Tickets, Hits Double Jackpot
Talk about dumb luck.
A woman in Australia won the lottery twice after she bought a second ticket because she forgot she had purchased one already.
I buy a TattsLotto ticket every week, and I just forgot that I’d already bought one for the weekend when I went to another shop to buy the second one. I always play the same numbers made up of family birthdays.”
The woman, in her 30s, won about $414,000 for each ticket and received some other prizes that made her final tally more than $835,000. Not too shabby for having a poor memory, huh?
The woman, who is merely the latest improbable double lottery winner, plans to use a good portion of her winnings to pay off her mortgage. She also has no intention of quitting her job.
Unless, of course, she forgets to show up.
