I'd have been better off broke.' = i been better off not winning at all
its a crying shame so many big time lotto winners say this,but their lessons to be learned!
their no doubt in my mind lotto winners get treated by different moral codes then must people would like to admit
people who "earn" money worked for it,
when that feeling of they didn't work for their money , aka "earned" the money they have
, family and freinds in ever general direction thinks its Okay to ask for money AND GET IT
i liken it to robbing a bank and making out super rich
, and a friend who didn't rob the bank, says can i have some money form you
, AND THEY expect to get what they ask for, cease your friends
and if you say no, they get upset, give them to little, and they are ungateful
must damage to a lotto winner is form family, friends, people close to you, as must of all crimes are now a days by people you KNOW
to be anonymous form must of a big family is good thing
if you must be kind and spoil your family and friends,whoever
at lest give them money by anonymous means
and if you got the balls,
tell them to their face, i give you x amount, but i NEVER ever want to hear any future requests of money, and you be gateful with whatever amount i give you, AGREED?
if they say Deal, then hand it over,
at lest you got them by their words!
so saying no to any future request would be EASY for you,
if they have any morals of obeying agreements they enter into, they leave you alone also!
would prevent so much idiotic trouble,
somehow people think they have RIGHT to your money, its madness!
want proof, take a look at lottery changed my life on tlc shows
if they ever get back to doing reruns of it :(
its these folks who think cease they know you,
they have a right to feel like you should give them your lotto money!
people really do treat lotto winners by diff moral codes,
its not wrong to ask for money form them, like it is everyone else, double standards!
in my mind if i won the lotto, i earned it, i cease i played!
if anyone ever asks me for money
i be like go WIN your own lotto jackpot, thats like telling them to go "earn" their own money! OH
if someone in my family, won, i be like, trust me, keep it to your self
as much damage control as can be done, should be done
take this story form lotto change my life
a mom with many kids won the lotto, all the kids are musty adults now
their was one son thro , that said Mom keep the money to your self, dont give it away, look atfer your self
now thats a kid that loves their mom!
she give a ton of it away to all the family she had
, and the kids who got all the FREE MONEY, wanted MORE, and MORE, you buy them things and, they expected more!
i would not give a penny to people like them"ungateful types"
am the type of person thats like ruthless with people when it comes to money
i go nuts over a penny getting lost!
am a accounting depertments worst nitemare in the flesh
if i ever had kids, and they thro a fit about how cheap i am when i got them GIFTS
, i be like you UNGATEFUL little beep and smack them up side the head,
saying: see if i get you any thing else , thats where being ungateful gets you, NONETHING
then again do whatever you WANT with your lotto money
but beware even if you want to GIVE away your money, their ungateful people out their!
and the only thing trying to please ungateful people get you is a lot of good grief
hell i even have backup plans, if my extended family found out!
i be like, you want money?, sure i got jobs that need to be done, the pay decent, LOL
hire them as personal assistants and stuff, if they want your money, they can earn it!
highly over paid for the jobs they do, but at lest your making them value the money you give them a lot more
people prize money they feel they "earned form their time and labor, A LOT MORE then money as a free
like kids with their parents money to spend, kiss it good bye in a blink of a eye
thats why SOME lotto winners go broke besides the friends robbing you blind
they treat it just like kids with free money their parents given them
kiss it goodbye! hello toys!
i plan to start businesses if i ever won really big jackpots,
always wanted to grow fruit for a living and make a killing doing it, people view fruit farmers with respect on how they made money
you grow apples for a living, smart
, they leave you alone with your money if you invested it!
, if they feel its just sitting in a bank account and you have no life goals, and dont"need it for your self"
good god do they come out of the wood work to rob you blind with their requests!
thats how it appears to me anyway!
to me thats what this story highlights,
i dont know about you all
but stories like this make me think what if i won and how would i avoid such troubles
if you dont plan ahead , you plan for disaster,
i speak form Experience on that!
