Most people would get angry if someone rudely took their spot in a queue, but one man from New Zealand stayed calm and got $1.000.000 in return. The lucky player kept his cool after one pushy customer decided to cut him in line while he was waiting for his turn to buy a lottery ticket.

The fortunate man from Tauranga, who decided to stay anonymous, matched the main winning numbers 10, 11, 17, 21, 31 and 34 in New Zealand’s Lotto draw on September 21st, with a ticket he purchased from Pak N Save Papamoa on his way home from work.
“I was waiting in line at the Lotto shop and another customer nipped in front of me. I wasn’t in any hurry, so I just let them go ahead and didn’t say anything. I guess good karma pays off – if that hadn’t happened, they might have had the winning ticket not me,” explained the lucky man.
He put the ticket in a safe place and found it a few days later – it took him by complete surprise when he finally checked it and realized his numbers were all correct. His mind “went blank” after that, so he just put the ticket away, went to work and shared the news about the win with his wife after coming back home that day.
“We’re not too sure what else we’ll do just yet. But whatever we end up deciding, we know the win will make a massive difference to our family – we’re just absolutely thrilled,” said the fortunate punter, who plans to buy a new house with his wife.
