The Good News Is... Bad mood turns into big win

HICKORY, NC (WBTV) - Joe Shuford was irritated at his wife for making him pull into the Conover gas station that was too crowded. Joe decided to calm his nerves by going inside and purchasing a scratch-off lottery ticket.

After a few scratches, his mood quickly changed.

"I said, 'Honey, I think I just won a motorcycle," Joe told his wife. Joe's wife quickly told him he was crazy but when the couple took the ticket to be scanned, sure enough, the bike was his.

Now the proud owner of a 2009 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob, Joe says he doesn't know what to do with it. He's never been on a motorcycle and isn't sure whether he'll keep it. He says he's got to discuss it with his wife first.

Either way, the 3rd shift textile worker got the surprise of a lifetime all because his wife stepped on his nerves.
