Woman wins Powerball Jackpot after another woman allows her to cut in line. 

84-year-old Gloria Mackenzie of Florida was the sole winner of the $590 Million Powerball Jackpot. After taxes it comes out to $270 million.  She has now admitted that she only got the winning ticket because another woman let her cut in line. The woman who let Gloria cut in front of her is 34-year-old Mindy Crandell who was with her 10-year-old daughter that day. The clerk even stopped Gloria and told her that Mindy was next in line. Mindy saw that Gloria was older and told her to go ahead. Gloria bought five lottery tickets that were machine generated and then Mindy bought one machine generated ticket. Once hearing that someone from Florida had won, Mindy’s family and friends joked that it was the old woman who had cut in front of her. Who would have thought that it actually was her!  Mindy and her daughter started thinking that maybe they had lost out on the jackpot by allowing Gloria to cut, but they aren’t holding any grudges. Mindy says she has no regrets and was quoted saying, “It’s better to be patient than rich. I knew we were teaching our daughter the right thing.”  At least she is staying positive about it!
