A California man lost out on 1 million dollars this week because he lost his lottery ticket. How do you recover from this?

The guy actually didn't even realize he had won until he saw himself on a surveillance video that was released by the lottery commission in an effort to find the winner. He went to the lottery office to try and claim the prize, they said no dice. You must have the ticket. The money will go to the state's education fund.

The man hasn't been identified, and I don't blame him. I wouldn't ever tell a soul what happened. I was in possesion of one million dollars and I lost it. You have to just drop out and move away from family and friends and start over.

Your friends and family will recognize you from the security tape, so you really have no choice. You will forever be the butt of jokes for the rest of your life, and never, ever win an argument with your significant other. "Oh yeah, well at least I didn't lose a million dollars!!"

Off the grid you go. Good luck to you my man.
