If you go back you'll see that's who I'm talking about: parents/children. Anybody who wins and can't share that with a parent or an adult child and their spouse has more serious problems.
Well I had said I'd tell/share with my parents and you replied that it showed me having a shallow relationship with people. Just didn't see anything I said that would make my relationship with someone shallow. I could see some peoples relationship with me shallow, should large amounts of money come into play, which is why I'd rather not tell the world.
If I had a wife/girlfriend then yea I would let them know I won, but I don't so that's not an issue. Same with children, though I wouldn't let them know immediately, after things were sorted out I'd let them know we won a lot of money. As for my brother/sister, letting them know would be worse than letting some strangers know.
We all have our own opinions as to who should or shouldn't know you won the lottery or when they should know, it doesn't mean one is right and the other is wrong. Everyone has different things to deal with so naturally how we handle winning the lottery will be different. That's why some winners don't care that they go and present their ticket the day after winning and others wait 3 months and have their attorney pick up the check as part of a blind trust.
