Honestly...Can you believe the nerve of his coworkers ?  Give me, I want, I need, I deserve...Those people parasites are like a disease looking for a host. Glad I keep friends to a limited handful. How many regular L.P. contributors would do that to a coworker or friend ??? ...I am leaning towards " maybe just a few". Be smart and relocate  to another residence before collecting... Keep the old address for a year or two. Place a hold on your mail. Keep decisions simple. Learn to say "no thank you".

Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

      I don't think we can assume winning a big jackpot would be equally traumatic for us as it was for him concerning his friends and what jerks some of them turned out to be. We have to remember he was in the teaching profession which is overwhelmingly dominated by liberal-minded people and a good portion of those friends were probably teachers as well.

      Liberal-minded people, as we all know, are the people most inclined to be entitlement-oriented, envious, jealous and shameless lovers of "free stuff." Those are the kind of people who will shamelessly hound you to the gates of hell for a share of whatever you have if they think they "deserve" it as much as you. They will get "offended" if you aren't willing to share, or, "redistribute the wealth," so to speak.

      I don't have liberal friends so that scenario isn't something I have to worry about in the event that I ever win a jackpot. I have normal friends.

      I wish Mr Henshaw the best of luck and especially good luck in hiding from his fellow teachers.

      Oh please!!! Don't think for a second that your "normal friends" wouldn't come at you this way, you

      100% sure they wouldn't? Money can make even the most "normal friends" go bonkers!

        Goes to show you just how fake most people around you are, and how quickly they can be exposed as lowlife leeches. But how did do many people find out his personal email and credit card info? I think he brought it all on himself because he is in the public eye. Theer is probably a lot he did that he is not telling anyone. Just the fact that he did the interview tells me he is an attention craver, and does not help his situation. So he brought it all on himself by being irresponsible and unprepared. You can tell that by the fact that he did not even know that he had a winning ticket.

          isnt canada no anonymous claims?  anyhow, as someone said. he may have been reading basically innocent jokes about " now you vcan pay off my credit card " as serious requests.  when all you see is greed, its easy  to interpret peoples comments wrongly. after all who ended the friendships? him or them?  did they say " pay of my  credit card or we are no longer friends? " I dont think so.

            im CONFUSED, how come most jackpot winners are people who are "low on money" like it always the same story "i put my last 1 dollar on it and i won millions"

            It makes a better story, and provides more justification. But if you are that low on money maybe you should not be buying lottery tickets. Also if a teacher barely has money he is living above his means and only has himself to blame.

                I am the only person that saw the part about him going backpacking in Europe? This obviously was not a poor man.....Somebody call the waaaaambulance, he spent all his money on vacation and won the lottery.  Now his friends won't talk to him.  What a life!

                  Yep, 100% sure! I don't have any liberal friends at all. In fact there's no libs that even live in my part of the state. It's all normal people here. I'd trust every one of my friends here with my life - something libs can't do, cuz libs always feel "entitled" to what other people have.

                  Thankfully, the only place I see libs around here is if I get on the interstate.

                  They're always there in the passing lane - going slow and blocking traffic.

                    Ridge - sounds like you have a fabulous group of friends. 

                    That is the way that it should be. 

                    My friends are wonderful (I have culled the herd over the years to the crème de la crème).  It's family and strangers that I cannot control!  Hence the need/desire for anonymous collecting of lottery wins (darn and drat peskie Rhode Island for not allowing anonymous winning!!!)

                    And around here... the passing lane... what is that?  we have 2 lanes of traffic (and i mean TRAFFIC) here going each way, but there is no passing lane... Shocked is THAT what one of those lanes was suppose to have been used for???

                      LOL, it doesn't matter if there are a million cars or just one lib getting off on annoying people by blocking traffic in the passing lane.

                      Either way you're stuck.

                          Well that explains why left lane campers are a major problem in jersey.

                          recently the state was  talking about raiseing the fine from $100 to $300.

                          its' not nessasary and won't work, what we need is enforcement.

                            This story is crazy, however i'm glad a lottery winner is coming forward and talking about his lottery winning experience because it let's me know that when i win the lottery again it will be private

                            The first win to me was a disaster and it wasn't millions but having and aunt that is a lottery winner has really changed her as a person and my cousins their is no connection between them anymore it is sad

                            The more i hear stories like this makes me no for sure i will keep it private and no one will no anything because i know most of my friends will change and act up.
