10 Stupid Things People Have Done After Winning The Lottery

10) Losing It Out To Absent-Mindedness

We have heard about all the stories out there, where lottery winners have misplaced their winning tickets only to have to go on a massive treasure hunt to retrieve them. Most of them claim to have rifled through their trash, retraced their steps and even went so far as to turn their houses upside down in search for them. For a lot of them, the hard search has paid off, with them finally staking claim over their monies, but there are a few unlucky ones out there who have been living with the thought that they may have lost their millions because of their absent-mindedness! Ian Galtress, an engineer from Merseyside, faced the very same emotions when he realized that he had lost his winning, one million pounds lottery ticket! How did he know for sure? Well, because he had purchased another ticket for his girlfriend and it was just one digit away from his, which of course, turned out to be the winning one, when he had lost it! Similar is the case of Wattford couple, Mr. & Mrs, Tott, who lost out on millions because an investigation that held them to be the real winners took longer than the 30-day deadline that had the company under obligation to pay out!
