Bivši NBA košarkaš Gilbert Arenas dobio je na lutriji 300.000 dolara. No nekadašnja zvijezda Washington Wizardsa podijelila je s fanovima putem Instagrama neobičnu priču u koju se upleo jedan beskućnik.
Naime, Gilbert Arenas je 12. svibnja želio uplatiti listić za lutriju na jednoj benzinskoj stanici. Dok je čekao na semaforu zeleno svjetlo prišao mu je jedan beskućnik i tražio nešto novca.
This caption is not about good deed but about a struggling mans sacrifice and belief 🙏🏾 may 12th I rushed out the house to play my lotto numbers😬forgot my money and the car was on E🤷🏾♂️ I had a whole $10 in the car😂😂😂 I pulled up to the gas station to get $10 worth so I can head to (my hook up gas station) and then a struggling man says (hey sir can u spare me some change) my first thought was 🗣PHUCK I don't have time for this shit today😩 so I said mannn I have $10 for some gas and that's it,I have 8 mins to get to the other gas station to play my numbers before it's to late🤯 he says u can play here...I said the other gas station lets me push the buttons myself🤪 he then says how far u going! My brain is saying (the fuck u asking all the questions for ) so I was only going to CALABASAS which was 7 mins away but lied and said Thousand Oaks which was at least 16 mins away so before he did the math on everything I said " 8 mins before the cut off but it's 16 mins away" I said listen I'll just use $5 dollars for gas and u can have the other $5 😇 he then says (from here to Thousand Oaks and back) u won't make it on $5 so KEEP the $10 and after u WIN hook me up with $20! I said are u sure he said yes 💯 I know ur gonna win💯 by the time I got to the my hookup gas station they were closed I guess they closed early for repair so I didn't get to play my numbers😡😡😡 I wake up to a text Wednesday morning saying congratulations U won 300k 😱 I've heard this scammer type shit happening so I ignored the next becuz I didn't get to play my numbers so I couldn't have won shit....I went to the gas station later that day to play powerball that was later that night and the owner runs out saying YOU WON i texted u 👀 I said huh I didn't play yesterday..he said I played ur numbers for u becuz I was closing early and u WON 😱🤯 long story short.....I pulled up on my guy yesterday and gave him his cut (for his safety) won't say the number 🤐he jumped up and hugged me for 5 mins crying and then started to pray💯 I've given back to the homeless BUT never was blessed by one 🙏🏾😇 his good hearted gesture of me making it back home blessed that ticket💯 #happysunday
Kod sebe je imao samo deset dolara, jer je novčanik ostavio kod kuće.
'Rekao sam čovjeku: Mogu ti dati pet dolara, a za pet kupiti listić za lutriju. Prosjak mi je odgovorio da zadržim sav novac i dobijem li mogu mu dati 20 dolara. Rekao mi je da je siguran da ću dobiti', otkrio je Arenas koji na kraju nije uspio uplatiti listić.
Neobična priča ima svoj nastavak.
'Sljedećeg jutra stigla je SMS poruku u kojoj su me obavijestili da sam dobio 300.000 dolara. Mislio sam da je lažna poruka. No vlasnik benzinske postaje, kada je vidio da me nema, odigrao je moje brojeve. Vlasnik stanice na kojoj točim gorivo dočekao me je s osmijehom' ispričao je Gilbert Arenas.
No ni tu priči nije kraj. Bivša zvijezda krenula je u potragu za beskućnikom.
'Morao sam ga naći. Čekao sam ga na istom mjestu gdje me tražio nešto novca. Grlio me, plakao, počeo je moliti... Njegovo je srce donijelo novac', zaključio je Arenas, ali nije otkriti koliko je dao prosjaku.
