Florida Man Wins $1 Million Lottery Thanks to Another Person’s Bad Manners.
Ladies and gentlemen, hold onto your scratch-offs, because you’re about to hear a tale of luck so unbelievable, it’ll make you want to run to your nearest convenience store and buy a ticket (or three).
Meet Stephen Munoz Espinoza, a 43-year-old Delray Beach resident who just won a cool $1 million playing the lottery. But, wait, it gets better. Espinoza didn’t just randomly pick a winning ticket, oh no. He won because of someone else’s bad manners.
According to Fox 8, Espinoza was at Publix, ready to buy a ticket at the machine, when a man cut right in front of him. Instead of getting mad, Espinoza decided to buy a 500X the Cash scratch-off ticket at the counter instead. And that, my friends, is where the magic happened. He picked up a $1 million-winning scratch-off ticket.
When asked about his big win, Espinoza said it was still hard to believe. But, we believe it, Stephen. And, we believe that the universe works in mysterious ways. Who knows, maybe that man who cut in front of him was sent by fate to lead Espinoza to his fortune.

Espinoza and his wife are now planning on buying a home for their family. And, we can only imagine that this home will be one of those fancy ones with a room just for scratch-off tickets.
Now, before you go off to your nearest Publix, keep in mind that the odds of winning a prize of any amount are 1-in-4.5, and the odds of winning $1 million are 1 in 267,739. But, hey, you never know, that man who cuts in front of you at the lottery machine might just be the luck you need.
