Unemployed man hit lottery! 32 million

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Wed Aug 24, 2011 9:24 am
It is well documented that winning the lottery can cause people to behave strangely.

Even by those standards, Candido Oliveira, a 47-year-old unemployed Dorchester man who showed up at Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters yesterday to claim his $32 million MegaMillions jackpot, stands out for what he did not do.

First of all, he did not check his numbers before deciding that he had won.

No, he said he knew it in his heart the moment he heard a newscaster announce, on Saturday, that the winning ticket had been sold at a convenience store near his house the previous night.

Oliveira had bought a MegaMillions ticket there the previous night, and that was enough to convince him that he had won.

So certain was he that he had won, he says, that he spent the next two days celebrating, in his own way. “I spent two days playing my guitar,’’ he said.
