(January 13, 2016) – Tonight’s billion dollar Powerball drawing has people all over the country dreaming about how they’d spend the jackpot.

And for a few minutes over the weekend, a group of restaurant co-workers believed their dreams had become reality!

The staff of New Jersey’s Grtissini Restaurant jumped for joy and screamed when they realized that they had matched all of the winning Powerball numbers.

A dishwasher even quit his job on the spot! But there was one big problem.

They had the wrong day.

Turns out they were reading last Wednesday’s winning numbers, but their ticket was for Saturday’s drawing.

The restaurant posted the video of their celebration on YouTube and even joked about it on Facebook.

No word on whether the dishwasher has asked for his job back.
