Murphy, North Carolina (IPP) - An Ingles Grocery store clerk lost $100,000 in cash today.
A man from Florida who had won 100 Million dollars recently in the Florida lottery was having some trouble checking out through the Self Check counter.
The lady clerk had no way of knowing she was about to win the $100,000 dollars in cash that the Florida lottery winner was about to randomly give to her including having the gift tax paid by the generous lottery winer.
She was rude to the man and he decided someone else would be more worthy of the six figure gift and he went on his way afterward without saying anything to the clerk. The rudeness came in response to the customer having missed reading a sign stating that the use of credit cards and check was temporarily not possible. The clerk was again rude when the man tried to pay the Self Checkout bill with a hundred dollar bill. This incident took place at 11:00 AM on Monday, December 17, 2007.
Sources at IPP have decided not to include the lottery winner's name in this article in order to protect him from reprisal and also to help maintain his privacy.
