Most miserable Brit ever Steve Moseley thought he had won £1million on a lottery scratch-off card. He went totally nuts, quit his job, phoned his girlfriend to tell her he was buying an Aston Martin, and participated in all sorts of celebratory nonsense.
Unfortunately, that was the number 16 on his card, not the number 15 in the winning combination. He had, in truth, won a whole sack of nothing.
He successfully grovelled his way back into his crappy used-car-salesman job and now has to take shed-loads of crap from his co-workers. God only knows what his gf is extracting from him.
It's funny as long as it's not happening to you, isn't it?
