    After I have my panic attack, I would Buy a house and car.

     

    I wouldn't tell much people I won...ESPECIALLY if it is a big jackpot.

     

    The most I would say: "I came into some money" and direct the conversation elsewhere if they ask how.

     

    I would never disclose the amount.

     

    I've watched unsolved mysteries before, I know how psychotic people can be lol.

    I agree with you there, i would just tell no one.    People do go crazy when they know how much money you have.  Then you have to be bombarded with business proposals that make no sense and stupid ideas given by others...

      I know a lady in GA who won a lot of money and her sister attacked her cause she thought she wasnt getting enough money.  Now she never leaves the house.  And I know there are countless other stories out there. ( now that would make a good forum topic ;-)...)

      I know . . . I always worry about how I would keep the ticket safe, even overnight.  Who in my family would spill the beans (only to their best friend) after promising to keep mum?  How to explain quitting work and going on an impromptu vacation without notice?  You can come back from vacation to find the house ransacked even without telling people there is a winning lottery ticket hidden in it.   Take it with you, have your pocket picked, bag stolen.  The one time I photocopied a winning ticket I left it in the machine and didn't realize it until I got to the car, had to run back for it.  You can't trust yourself with big money on the mind.

      exactly.  I'm a claim it the next day kinda gal....A piece of paper is very fragile; I want mine cashed and in the bank asap.  My luck I would quit my job, go on vacation and like you something happen to it.  Then I would be with no job and a hefty vacation bill!!!
