Drabble Challenge #7

Prompt: windfall

Jim always bought a lottery ticket and kept it at his work station. This week was no exception. While Jim was on break, someone copied the numbers from his ticket, called a local lottery dealer, and struck up a deal. When Jim called to find out the winning numbers, the dealer read out the number from Jim's ticket.

The plan went off without a hitch. Jim was so sure that he had won, he quit his job and bought a round of food and drink for all of his friends, later to find out it was all a cruel prank!
