There are few things in life that are more satisfying than an “I told you so moment” where you are on the delivering end of that smug statement. Whether you’re arguing about something with friends, or your significant other or with your boss at work, being right about whatever it is feels fan-fucking-tastic. The sensation that comes from the validation that you KNOW EVERYTHING is unrivaled. I WAS RIGHT, BABY! SUCK A DICK, LOSER!

Sorry. Save for hitting it pure on the course, sex with my lady and seeing our website grow, being right really blows my top off. I’ll curb my enthusiasm.

Anyway, this nameless Michigan man and recent lotto winner —  who won $1,000,000 on a scratch off (a $634,517 lump sum) — got to feel that very satisfying sensation first hand after he defied his girlfriend’s requests that he not waste his money on a lotto ticket.

According to Yahoo:

“I stopped to get gas and the pump didn’t print out a receipt so I grabbed a couple of $5 winning tickets and went inside the store,” the man told the Michigan Lottery last week.

“On my way in, my girlfriend told me not to buy any Lottery tickets, but I didn’t listen. I bought one 50X The Cash ticket and paid for it with my two $5 winners,” the winner said.

The man chose to take the prize’s lump sum of $634,517, instead of a 30-year payout. He told the lottery he wants to take a vacation with the winnings before investing the rest.

“We’ve always wanted to go to Scotland, and this will give us the opportunity to do that,” he said. “Maybe next time my girlfriend won’t be as skeptical when I’m feeling lucky and want to buy a Lottery ticket.”

Does this guy sound like someone who will squander his entire lottery fortune in a few years? OH YEAH. Would his girlfriend have been right 99.9999999% of the time about how he shouldn’t waste his money on lotto tickets? OH SURE. But this time she wasn’t. And Christ almighty I hope he wiped it all over her face.
