If you're ever in the hole financially, don't go out and waste money on lottery tickets. It's tempting because one big win could solve all your problems. But it never works out . . . RIGHT?
A woman named Tiffany Hatfield lives near Orlando and decided to evacuate to get out of the path of Hurricane Irma. (We're not sure how old she is, but she looks like she's in her 30s or early 40s.)
She headed north to stay with someone in Virginia. And on her way, she stopped at a gas station in North Carolina.
While she was there, she bought a $5 scratcher ticket. And in this case, it DID work out for her.
She ended up winning TEN GRAND. And the money couldn't have come at a better time. It turns out her house was damaged in the storm. So she's using the money to fix it up.
