A calm temperament really paid off!
Most people get angry if someone pushes in front of them in a queue.
Imagine waiting patiently in line for a train ticket , only for someone to barge in front of you, seemingly oblivious to any etiquette whatsoever.
So much stress. But let's try to keep cool.
One man did, and his calm demeanor paid off in a big way. His fine temperament made him a millionaire .
Wishing to remain anonymous, the New Zealand man won $1 million in the Lottery .As he queued at his local shop in Tauranga on the north island, another customer cut in front of him.
But as he wasn't in a rush, he told the New Zealand Herald that he decided against challenging the impatient shopper's rudeness.He just picked up his Lotto ticket a minute or so later and casually walked away.And then won $1 million.
"I wasn't in any hurry, so I just let them go ahead and didn't say anything," he told the paper.
"I guess good karma pays off - if that hadn't happened, they might have had the winning ticket not me."
