We've had plenty of what you would do if you win discussions, how about a last thing you would do poll?

Have fun, expound if you want.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    Go to work. After several decent months, this month is challenging to say the least. If I won enough to retire instantly, the last thing I would ever want to do is sell another piece of furniture.

      The last thing I'd do is throw the whole thing down on a craps, blackjack, or roulette table and risk millions on the turn of a card, roll of the dice, or bounce of the roulette ball. Razz

        Go to work. You can bet if I win a jackpot, I won't be going into work the next day.

          If I could I would've picked five of those choices but I chose other. As hard as it might be, I would not tell anyone I know that I won or anyone period aside from a lawyer to help me get things set up and even still I'd try to keep just how much I won a secret from him/her if I can until the day to collect arrives, which I would hope would come quickly because then the quicker I can get away and escape though before then I might just have to at least let a couple people know but I still wouldn't say how much, but they wouldn't find out until everything is settled and done with and I'd demand they not say anything or I'd probably disown them, heh. I wouldn't be flashy (by drawing attention to myself) as I'm not a showoff and I wouldn't buy a Ferarri. I'd probably wear a disguise at the lottery office and if they made me do an annoying press conference. I wouldn't "spread the wealth" or whatever either aside for donations to charity for tax reasons and maybe help paying tuition for a cousin attending college (again, mainly for the tax exemption if it'd work for me) but aside from that the only cash "gifts" would be only to my mother (with conditions) and grandmother, whom I'd also probably end up buying her house from her just to give her the money so it'd be easier for her to move without the hassel and fix the place up a little and resell though it'd probably be a better idea to just pay to fix it up a little and grant me the power to make the choices since I handle most of her affairs anyway. Family beyond that can go jump in a lake with how they were after my grandfather could no longer take care of things and she was in control and especially the last few years with certain family matters. Same with my old "friends" too they can take a long walk off a short pier. But a lot of things depend on exactly how big this jackpot is.

           

           

          Wow, I wrote way too much and got a bit side tracked. But there's just so much I would not do and I haven't even scratched the surface, I've thought this over waaaay too much for something that's never going to happen.

          You can't predict random.

            I agree with some of the others. The last thing I would do is go to work, but I definitely wouldn't call any ex's either. That wouldn't make sense to me.

              I picked other.  I would try to keep it a secret from my entire family and all of my friends if it was a realatively small amount.  If it was enough for me to go nuts and actually live the high life then I would have to let them know.

                  Go to work. After several decent months, this month is challenging to say the least. If I won enough to retire instantly, the last thing I would ever want to do is sell another piece of furniture.

                  I used to sell furniture and so many stores here closed because of the housing market.   I can certainly relate to your comment!

                  Mrs. Jones:  You've been very helpful.   If I order that chair, when do you estimate it will be delivered?

                  Nancy:  We're currently out of stock, but I'll call the manufacturer. Just a minute. I'll be right back.

                  Factory Rep:  You'll have it in 4 weeks. You have my word.

                  Nancy:  The factory said it will be delivered in about 8 weeks. 

                  Mrs. Jones:  Well, I didn't want to wait 2 months, but I really want that chair and you've done an excellent job.  

                  Manager:   You could have lost the sale.   Next time if it's scheduled to be here in 4 weeks, then you just say it'll be here in 4 weeks.  That's what the factory rep said and it's it our computer!  Grrrrr. 

                  Nancy:  I'm just trying to be careful so she isn't upset if it's a few weeks late.

                  (12 weeks later)

                  Mrs. Jones:  Where the *&*^% is my chair?  You keep telling me it's scheduled to arrive any day.

                  Nancy:  I sincerely apologize, Mrs. Jones. As you know, I've called & followed up every week, and I'm doing all I can to expedite delivery. It's on a truck and will be arriving in FL any day now.

                  Nancy to factory rep:  I'm checking again on order #PB7654XY I ordered 12 weeks ago.

                  Factory rep:  Our computer shows that it left 10 days ago, so you should see it on your dock Tues. 

                  Nancy on Tues (her day off) to manager:  Please make sure the chair Mrs. Jones ordered is scheduled for delivery as soon as it's unloaded from the truck.  It's arriving today.  I'm in the middle of a colonoscopy, but I want to make sure nothing goes wrong since it was supposed to arrive 8 weeks ago. I'm bending over backwards to get this out.

                  Manager:  I already checked and it will be here on Friday.  Just relax.

                  (16 weeks later)

                  Nancy calls factory:  Where is order #PB7654XY I ordered 4 months ago?  It was supposed to be delivered to our warehouse several times and the delivery keeps getting pushed back.

                  Rep at factory:  It will go into production tomorrow.

                  chair finally arrives in 5 months

                  Manager:  Our delivery guys got to the Jones house and unfortunately they dropped the chair, breaking off one of the legs.  You'll have to re-order the chair.

                  Mrs. Jones:  You are worthless.  You don't deserve to exist.  Without that chair, there's no reason for me to live and it's all your fault.

                  Store Manager:  Why the f*** did you tell the customer she'd have her chair in 8 weeks?

                      justxploring - Funny?? Wholy crap, you just hit the (customer/nail/ect) on the head!  I WAS in mortgages and that is the SAME thing that would happen to me.  Often I was told by a rep for a lender that the customer is approved and all set, then 6 weeks later we are still chasing paperwork and the customer is chasing me with a cartoon size mallet! - NOT FUN.

                        I would not flaunt it. Then the whole neighbourhood would know (if they didn't already because of the gossip).

                          That's why I chose not to stay put.  It's a small town here.  Everyone knows everything and they're not ashamed to let you know it!

                              My boss is always calling my house telling me to do extra hours, getting stuff wrong and moaning at me with her big mouth, if I won i'll wait for the phone to ring and tell her that her mouth is only good for one thing, then quit.
