Million-dollar confusion

Okay, I’m confuddled. It seems a nice bloke from Christchurch (well, I’m assuming he’s a nice bloke, but in actual fact he could well be a total arsehole … but for the sake of this post let’s just continue to assume he’s a nice bloke) … now, where was I?

Oh yes, the nice bloke from Christchurch who won a million bucks in Lotto. He bought the ticket on New Year’s Eve (December 31, Friday week ago) and according to the story online, the winnings hit his bank account this past Friday (January 7).

Then, the story tells us the ticket sat in his wallet for more than a week before he even checked it and found out he’d won. Hang one, more than a week? Um, did the prize include some time travel as well as the cash?

A week after buying the ticket would have been this past Friday (January 7) … more than a week would imply at least until Saturday, January 8. But the story says he got his cash on January 7.

I’m confuddled. Anyways, let’s hope he enjoys the winnings. And maybe the time travel.

    Perhaps he time travelled and appeared in the background of a Charlie Chaplin film?
