I think I would call into work and say im sick. I definitely wouldn't tell any of my co-workers. What would you do?

    I would probably call in sick.

    I'm not quitting until that money is in my bank account. On the other hand, I don't think I could be calm or cool enough to work.

      I would buy the company and hire the former boss to manage it.

      I would then have a big meeting of all management and employees the following week at which time I would fire the boss and all of his boot lickers.

      I would then give the company to the good people who worked there.

      Then we'd bust out the Jack and bring in the dancin' girls!

        Day 1, i would call in sick. (off to the lottery commission, as long as all goes well) procede to Day 2.

        Day 2, i would not call in at all.

        Day 3, i would not call in at all.

        Day 4, i would not call in at all.

        This would test our attendance policy. After 3 days of no call, no show YOUR FIRED.

        Sobeit.

          I like my boss and co-workers..I am lucky in that regard, he already knows if I win say 100k I'm gone , 1 million or more , then thats why they haven't heard from me.

                I would go into work and sign up for all of my vacation days.

                And then after a few hours tell them I don't feel too good and go home sick.

                That would give me time to visit a lawyer and take care of all the legal business and still be bringing home a paycheck.

                I might as well take everything I have coming to me from work too. Why not?

                  Since I am the boss of me,  I will change the work hours,  give myself some vacation time,  hire two more secretaries (no work experience),  redefine my job responsibilties,  extend lunch breaks............ rewrite our mission objectives,  upgrade the coffee machine.......................

                    I plan to keep working and keep my trap SHUT.  I couldn't just walk out on my boss,  Teh company seems to take advantage of her as it is.  I know it would be tough to do her job and mine :  I just wouldnt feel right walking out.  Besides, I still feel you need to have an outlet.  Boredom= trouble.  Working keeps your mind in focus.  Especially if youre working cause you want to, not cause you have to.

                      What if your bored and your mind wonders at work?

                      I have a few hobbies that would keep me busy, I definitely would not be bored.

                      To answer the OP's question:

                      I'd basically do what Peter did in the movie Office Space without the embezzlement stuff.

                          Seeing as how I'm out of work I don't have to worry about that. 1st thing that I would do the next day is to go to the bank and setup a special account. Then head to claim my prize. Head back to the bank and deposit the check.

                            I think quitting your job so fast even with a 2 week notice will raise suspicion. Especially if your boss knows how much you have in your 401k or are close to your co workers and or boss. And if you let your friends and family know that you quit they will also question you. Unless you actually can afford to retire you should probably keep working or work part time. Maybe start your own "busniess" and say you got another job lined up. And the "business" can be whatever you want it to be.

                              I would...

                              A) walk in with a piece of mistle toe hanging from my back belt loop.

                              B) Call in and say that I have and eye problem... I just won millions and I can't see myself working for the company any more.

                              C) Call 'em up and say "I quit, come get your vehicle and hurry 'cause it's parked on the street........ running.   (oh, and I'd lock the doors)
