So everybody is thinking it so I will just come out and say it:

 

Why, oh why, in God's name does the Lottery Fairy give it to this guy? All of us here are have laid out plans and lawyers picked out and trusts mentally prepared.  and this guy, who clearly doesn't know much more than how to bathe himself, wins it and buys ...SHOES?!?! 

 

Maybe i'm just bitter.  I know some of you have heard me say it before....the market changed, my pay was cut drastically i'm back in school for a career change but i'm one medical emergency from losing my house.  With 400K i could have paid off my house, vehicles and put my kids through school.  Just makes no sense to me.  and kills me.  absolutely. kills. me.

Its the great mystery of the Universe Lucky. I think of this stuff ALL the time. Why? Why? Why? Its some sort of cruel humor. Some win...loose their tickets. Some win....forget to check their numbers. Some win......have no idea how to manage their new found fortune. Some win......Drugs, Broke, Death. Some win....and win again. You really can't make this stuff up.

And then there's us....waiting, praying, waiting, trying, keep buying, and waiting, and hoping....

You really cant make this stuff up. Good luck all.

          Wow ain't this the truth!  Some people buy one ticket and win the jackpot.......I try to win, I crunch numbers, I check others predictions, I pray, I spend a lot of money buying a bunch of chances for a dollar and a dream...nothing............little hits here and there but thats it.  I guess I have to become dysfunctional or an addict or something, maybe quit my job....lol.

            It's really sad that no one (family) had any time for him when he was put there, but now the money came in, there they are, hands out! Puke

              It's like the game Clue the mystery of trying to figure out who done it?

                  There are sooo many things to address with this story that I have to go to bed and get back to it in the morning:

                  The first thing to blow my mind was: who the F*** goes to a bank to get a cashiers check then take it to a cash checking store to cash it???? and pay $14K in fees to cash a check that could have been cashed for free at the same bank???? (obviously this must have been the cab drivers idea and we all know why)

                  Reading this was so upsetting i have to log off now and MAYBE get back to it tomorrow.

                  I Agree!

                  No No

                    If you ever hit it big?   SAY NOTHING!! 

                    DO NOT TELL ANYONE BUT YOUR MATE.   

                    Unless your mate has a big mouth, then don't tell them. 

                    Get lost quickly, not leaving a trace.

                    Move to another state.

                    Call Mayflower to pack your belongings and ship them to you.

                    Legally change your name.

                    And most of all..... have a plan in place just in time for the win.

                      I would follow your advice except for calling Mayflower.....If I hit it big enough to disappear I would not call Mayflower...I would leave all my old stuff and start fresh.

                            My ex-wife once lost 185 lbs. of ugly fat.

                            She divorced me. 

                            She took all her crap and over half of mine when she left, too.
