Mirlande Wilson is adamant that by the end of the week she becomes a preferred media whore….
Kids, it’s seems this story is getting more diabolical minute by minute but then again should anyone be surprised with so much at stake?
After having gone into seclusion and failing to pick up her purported winning prize earlier this week and then having her lawyer tell the world that she would be holding a press conference some time today, Ms Wilson has finally made the wait worth all our while with the revelation that yes the winning ticket does exist and it happens to be wait for it, in McDonald’s where it is hidden in a secret spot where nobody according to Ms Wilson’s words would ever find it.
Kids, can I order a Big Mac before I continue with this too good to be true story? That’s right- no pickles, I’m allergic to them amongst other things….
But in case you’re thinking like every other customer that happens to suddenly troll to the Milford Mill branch today in search of a quarter pounder and other surprise funds that Ms Wilson risks losing her ticket (never mind what her co workers are doing to the kitchen stove and last week’s ketch up jars at this very moment) Ms Wilson is quite confident that her little gem is so well hidden that no one will ever find it.
NY Post: “I left my ticket there, and it’s somewhere safe that only I know about,” she told The Post through a Creole-speaking translator.
The single mom of seven did say that the ticket — worth an after-tax lump-sum payout of $105 million — was not in the franchise’s safe with those she bought for the workplace pool.
Which leads to the immediate question, if it’s somewhere in McDonald’s how did Ms Wilson figure out she is the winner considering that she had not been there since telling co workers she won, unless of course she planted the ticket there via a friend to deflect attention from the fact that it might have been a ticket been bought as part of the collective. And just because it’s not in the safe, why is her winning ticket at McDonald’s anyway? Isn’t that tantamount to saying that the winning prize belongs to those who pooled at McDonald’s? Or are we to suddenly believe Ms Wilson had left the ticket purely out of convenience and of course torment fellow co workers?
And with respect as to why she has yet to collect her winning ticket?
“I’m waiting for things to calm down so I can go back to McDonald’s and get it. The people [at McDonald’s] are too excited. I want their heads to cool down before I go back,” she said.
From Ms Wilson’s assertion that she won the jackpot from a dollar bill she found at the store to even fellow co workers who are also now claiming that they have not seen her come back to the store since when she left Friday evening (except for this morning where she came to speak with a McDonald’s manager by the name of Layla- does Layla now have the winning ticket??) one really has to wonder if Ms Wilson is telling the truth and whether she really believes her co workers are buying her story?
Ms Wilson has also added that she will be donating all her winnings to rebuilding to Haiti… Indeed.
