This is the second story about a janitor winning the lottery. I feel a career change coming on!Wink

I had a couple of janitorial jobs early in my work career, but there weren't any lotteries around for me to play then.  Now 45 years later my only hope is to be in the group of retired folks who win a lottery.

    Read another article on Mr Addo where he said he knew he was going to win

    “My co-workers would often tease me about my weekly ticket purchase, but I had faith I was going to win, but when it really happened I couldn’t stop crying,” said Addo

     

    His faith was so strong he didn't allow any negativity or teasing stop him from fulfilling his dreams

     

    Congrats to Mr Addo and his family

      Great story!  But I would never have to give my ticket to a retailer to see how much I'd won.  The only time a retailer see's or touches my tickets are when they sell them to me, just sayin'.

        Hey, every now and then, you hear of the lesser fortunate (not multimilionares) winning a jackpot. Congratulations to him -- a much deserved financial break from struggling from paycheck to paycheck, and for the most part, we have all been there, done that!

        Now, it is time to sit back and enjoy, reaping the benefits of a $1.00 or more spent -- and the individual had no idea he would win, either. Makes me wonder, if he is still going to continue working?

        See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

          I'm always glad to see a working man strike it rich.

          It's not that the super-rich (like George Soros or Michael Moore or Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi) don't deserve it if they buy a ticket, it's just that they're so ungodly rich already that they wouldn't appreciate it as much as a common working man or woman.

          That's why I'd rather see common working people like John Addo win than the filthy rich people like Bill Maher or Barney Frank or the Obamas or the Clintons or Charles Schumer or Eric Holder or any of the other wildly wealthy people.

          Those people are all so loaded and living fabulous lives in the lap of luxury already, you would have to wonder why they would even buy a ticket. They are so far removed from us by their mountains of money that they can't even relate to us, the common people, anymore.

          And now with the war to take Libya's oil they will get even richer.

          But still they have a right to buy a ticket to try to get even richer.

          So please don't hold their ridiculously fabulous wealth against them.

          Wow you are so caught up in the false left right paradigm it's sad.  WAKE UP!!!! They are all wings of the same bird.

            And you continue dressing up all in black with your face covered while kicking over garbage cans and breaking windows with your comrades in downtown Seattle.
