*The stuff that day dreams are made of really happens…sometimes. Just ask Hubert Tang, a Bay Area resident who had not bought a lottery ticket in more than a decade before he decided to throw caution to the wind after finding a $20 bill on a street outside the San Francisco International Airport and bought two scratch-off tickets at some little market in Millbrae.
Lo and behold, he nearly crapped bricks when he realized he had won the $1 million top prize.
“I scratched the ticket outside of the store. I told my friend who I was with that I didn’t know if it was real but, ‘I think I just won a million dollars,'” Tang, who wasn’t immediately available for comment on Monday, said in a statement, according to the Associated Press.
Tang is a bartender who has no immediate plans for the money, but in an act of “paying it forward,” says he just might start leaving random $20 bills around town.
The market will get a $5,000.00 bonus for selling the ticket and Tang could win $25,000 more in a 2nd chance drawing for the other ticket, which was not a winner.
Yo, Mr. Tang. Can you pay it forward and hook a sista up?
