Waiter Mr. Ozcan dreamed he was in standing front of his boss holding a lot of money. Convinced this meant his boss would win the lottery he pestered his boss Mr. Kucukkoylu for a full 3 hours, finally convincing him to buy a lottery ticket. Interestingly, his boss actually won £1 million. But the boss could not be persuaded to share the winnings with the waiter, so Ozcan accused his boss of stealing the winning ticket from him.
In front of a judge, however, the truth came out; Kucukkoylu did not steal the ticket, he had bought it at Ozcan’s insistence. This led the judge to come to a surprising ruling which ordered Kucukkoylu to give half the winnings to Ozcan.
Ozcan is very lucky. No one would have imagined a judge would make that kind of a ruling. It is not known if Kucukkoylu plans to appeal.
