Post Falls Man Calls In ‘Rich’ For Work

Some people choose to call out sick after Super Bowl, but a Post Falls man was honest about missing work this week. Kyle Messier of tried to buy a $20 lottery ticket from the Frontier Grocery store, but the shop didn’t have any. He bought two $10 tickets instead.  “I got in the car with my best friend and started playing the tickets when I realized I’d won,” described Messier.  “My friend and I started hugging right there in the car! I couldn’t believe it.”  Messier bought, scratched and won $100,000 on the Ultimate Bankroll game/KREM, Idaho Lottery. More here.

Question: What would you do with an unexpected $100,000?
