That day- a short story

Its not going good for him so far.His wife fought with him the previous night.She even hinted at going back to her parents place.Then as the day dawned,he got ready to goto office.His car broke down on the way.He was already late for work.He managed to reach office an hour late, only to be called in by his superior.He was told that he lost his job due to cost cutting.Just as he gathered his mind and left office,he waited for the bus.His ill luck continued to follow him as there was a major accident on the road and traffic was shut down.He decided to walk back home. A day cannot be so bad without a reason- he thought. As he reachd home and opened the door, he collected the day's posts.One of which stood out- the intimation that he won a MILLION on the lottery ticket that he purchased a week ago.It was not a bad day afterall!

Thank God, you had a different ending. Mid way it felt like an email forward, but the million dollars was just fabulous, especially in Recession... ;)

@ROHAN
ya, I so wanted to have a different ending and hence the million. What with economy melt down, job cuts and all that, I thought let that poor guy win a million.
