Now these are the type of stories we love to see.

A Michigan man is $2 million richer -- because a gas station clerk handed him the wrong lottery ticket.

The 57-year-old Eastpointe resident, who hasn't been identified, says he decided to buy a $10 Lucky 7 ticket when he stopped at a gas station to put air in his tire. When the clerk accidentally handed him a $20 ticket, the man says, "something told me to keep it. I am sure glad I did." The ticket turned out to be a $2 million winner.

The man has opted to take the lump sum payout of $1.3 million, lottery officials say.

With everything currently going on in the world, we would take the payout as well!
