    He also said in his interview that his desk was full and he would be finishing up his work and not leave the company in the lurch.

    Thats probably why he claimed quickly. He can finish the work while waiting for the money and retire.

            Actually the $149 million was just his total share of the overall jackpot.  He took the cash option which took his third to $86 million.  Then he pays taxes on that amount which will put him close to $46 million.

            The post I replied to said $149 million and my figures were based on that. It's amazing how much an advertised jackpot of $448 million can be diluted. That means the 16 people in the NJ pool will get less than $4 million each which is still a nice hit.

            In the interview Paul White mentioned a car he saw on Craig's List and said he was going to buy it the next day and why I mentioned a line of credit. It will probably be a 30 day loan and be deducted when the winnings are in his account.

            "He also said in his interview that his desk was full and he would be finishing up his work and not leave the company in the lurch."

            He has $46 million reasons not to go to work and he may show up just to get his personal things from his desk, but his mind won't be on the work that's laying on his desk. If your garbageman won a jackpot like that do you think they would be concerned if your garbage might not be picked up on time?

              He probably had some saving that he was holding on to but now that he has a few millions in the pipe line, he doesn't have worry about spending it.

                Didn't you read the article?

                Interesting trivia: some people actually have money in the bank, even if they haven't gotten a fat check from the lottery.

                              This Paul White looks and sounds like Chris Christy the governor of New Jersey.  At least he will avoid the higher taxesLOL.
