The couple decided to stop to get a couple of sandwiches to take home and they picked up a trio of scratch-off lottery tickets, including a $5 Kansas City Chiefs ticket.
Fischer said she forgot about the tickets until later, when her husband asked if she had scratched them off yet.
"I looked at the Chiefs ticket and took it over by the kitchen door for better light. I looked at the ticket again and said, 'oh my God! oh my God!' My husband asked 'what?' So, I handed him the ticket, shaking like a leaf, and said 'look for number 39.' He looked at it and said 'that says $25,000!' and I said 'I know it does,'" Fischer said. "It was a sheer shock!"
Fischer said she plans to use the money to pay off her debts and take a Las Vegas vacation.
