    Last week Jennifer Maldonado was to receive something from an office pool that won only $1M and people thought it was cool. Nobody criticized her office colleagues for their generosity. Today Pedro Quezada, who is walking home with $152M, is getting castigated for promising two months rent for his neighbors. I am still trying to understand this.

    That money's gone fo ever

      my guess is he hasn't seeked financial advice because i doubt they would have told him sure go pay everyone's rent for 3-4 months...lol

      and you know it wont stop there them people will be like i need help another  few months just until we get on our feet and by the way can you spare some money for food, light bill, gas for the car...Green laugh

            I agree, even charities will hound you.

            I gave a couple boxes of crap to ARC once, and now they won't leave me alone!  They call a few times a month, telling me they'll be in my neighborhood picking stuff up.  I asked and asked and asked to be taken off the call list, that I'd call them or drop it off if I had something.

            So now they hounded me and made me mad, they get nothing.   I found another charity who wants my old crap, and has never rang my phone even once.

                Your very right, Look at all the stories here on people who lost it all, ended up dead or in jail, on the streets,

                He's Mr. Big shot now flapping is mouth off, paying rent for 2 months, really nice gesture, but somewhere, there is someone formulating a plan to get the lions share, there's a dee dee moore waiting in the shadow, 2 months of rent will turn into , we need a car, we need braces, we need a new tv, once he starts the free train, it will just gain speed, a disaster waiting to happen.

                I agree....and was just thinking about the Dee Dee's out there.....he may already have a "Dee Dee"...he better stay away from driveways.....!!!

                  It's nice that he wants to help, it's not realistic, he'll be used by many, to many of these stories, they all end up with the lottery winner being broke, or being hounded.

                    I have a feeling he is going to drop a ton on ladies.  He just looks like he would frequent the local strip clubs.

                            I agree with you sully16

                            I was born in raised in Detroit myself and my last address before I moved up here to the Waterford area was on 7 mile and evergreen. my family still stays down in the hood.

                            and most of the other post, I only hope the best for him and his family but it doesn't look good this guy is to quick to speak and slow to think first, he should have waited and got a good financial advisor first and went somewhere where he could think in private for a few days or more then maybe after he took care of his past debts child support etc. set up trust for his kids and made some wise low risk investments and then go back to the hood and quietly help out your true friends with a one time $gift and then move on start a new life and if you want to help more people set up a non profit.

                            I hope Michigan votes to let players go anonymous if not I will be wearing a mask at the press conference and i wont say much if anything at all when i win big.

                              I understand the addiction to be a sugar daddy can be strong and overpowering  but based on the article we cannot assume his first gesture of generosity is a sign he's gonna open the floodgates.  Or can we? What?
