(Newser) – A Kansas man says he was in hot water with his wife for buying lottery tickets—when he suddenly won $22,000, per Fox News. Seems Louis Kronawitter was taking grief while reviewing a pile of 2by2 and Pick 3 tickets at their home in Shawnee, a Kansas City suburb, when he spotted the winning ticket. "When I showed my wife how much I had won, she immediately quit bickering," he tells the Topeka Capital-Journal. "We were both very surprised." Kronawitter says he regularly plays Powerball, Mega Millions, and Super Kansas Club—and plans to keep playing. A Catholic, he also plans to tithe some of the jackpot to his church. (One woman got arrested while trying to pick up her lottery winnings.)
