Man misses winning numbers, sues his children for having the wrong birthdates

Of course, this makes so much sense!

A cab driver in Athens, Georgia, is really upset right now.  Stephen Jones played last week’s Mega Millions, where you have to pick 6 numbers to win the big jackpot.  Here is how he picked his numbers:

– his age (46)
– his age plus one (47)
– his wife’s age (39)
– birthday of first child (5)
– birthday of second child (8)
– birthday of third child (21)

Here are how the winning inumbers came up:  6, 11, 26, 39, 46, 47

As you can see, he matched 3 numbers out of the 6.  The ones he missed were the dates that his children were born.  So, he determines the children are at fault – and he has sued them.

Jones’ lawsuit seeks damages totaling $196 million, which is the amount he would have won if his children would have had the good sense to be born on the 6th, the 11th, and the 26th of the month.

Rather than sue the children, it seems that Mr. Jones should have planned those dates a little more carefully himself.
