This woman could have easily had it all. However, everything went down the drain when she supposedly flushed all her winnings down the toilet.
Winning the Lottery
Angela Maier is one of the luckiest people in the world who won the lottery jackpot of $350,000! What would be the first thing you would do if you were in her shoes?
Drinking the night away is normal, but everything Angela did afterward is not something you should follow!
Angela is a 63-year-old who drank five bottles of champagne a few days after finding out she won $350,000 in the German national lottery. However, that same night, she opened a letter that made her furious!
The Letter’s Contents
When she opened the letter, she found out it was a bill from the home that took care of her late husband. It turns out that the home had learned about her recent win and demanded she pay his overdue medical expenses.
In her drunken state, Angela was simply furious. She didn’t want anyone else to have their hands on her money.
However, you wouldn’t believe what she did!
Down the Toilet
Angry at the thought that someone else would have her money, Angela destroyed the cash.
She tore up all the banknotes she had and flushed them down the toilet—all because she didn’t want them to be used toward her late husband’s medical bills!
It Was Like Nothing Happened
When Angela flushed everything down the toilet, she was left with nothing.
Because of what she did, she didn’t have any money left to compensate the care home in any way.
Though Angela explained what had happened in court, the care home did not necessarily back down. However, the court deemed that what she did was not illegal.
Someone then claimed that Angela might be lying about the money. But the court said that only an expert would be able to judge whether she was telling the truth or not.
Ending the Case
It was not an easy case. Ultimately, the home decided that their legal battle with Angela was more trouble than it was worth.
Then, Angela agreed to pay $4,300 in compensation as a settlement.
Odd One Out
Angela Maier is genuinely one of the luckiest people in the world to have won the lottery’s jackpot. However, what made her even more unique was that she literally threw away all the money!
Other people who have one, after all, either gave away the money to people in need or kept it for themselves.
What the Community Has to Say
For some, Angela’s story is not that believable.
One even said, “Yeah, I don’t think she did.”
I Have My Doubts
People also question whether she’s lying or just plain stupid.
This Redditor wrote, “I wouldn’t say that’s for sure. She’s stupid if she did, though.”
Do you think Angela was lying? What would you do if you won this much money?
