Just heard that the couple that won the 207 million dollar powerball will keep working...I personally think it would be hard to keep your job because you would be a distraction....the co-workers asking to borrow money...hey your boss could ask to borrow money....now how would you ever get promoted? People would claim you bribed your boss for it...or the boss may come to you and say hey I'm not going to promote you unless you give me such and such...I mean forget sexual harrasment you're in a whole new catagory now...the what if you owned your own business...people would constantly be trying to sue you...you'd have more lawyers on the payroll than anybody else....Think about it would you really want to keep your jobs...or small businesses....or would you rather go on permenant vacation....and maybe just volunteer somewhere???

    I think they could stay if they can establish boundaries with the people around them.

      Its a little selfish to hold on to a job that you don't need while out there are many people who are unemployed and who could do that job and support their families. Just another angle to consider o_O

        I read that Mr Honeywell was working on a big project so he may be able to work from home.

          Thats true, but a perpetual vacation could get a little old. It might be like being stuck on a cruise ship. lol.

            I would play poker full time (don't play at all now) if I won big, so I guess you could say I would 'keep working.'

              A self employed person may not need to quit their job. Just take a little extra time off.

                Sitting at a table for hours on ends with other crazy poker players would be work indeed.

                  I would retire ASAP, Been thinking about already, would spend my days in my garden, plan meaningful vacations, donate to my favorite charities, help friends and family , very quietly of course, and have the most awesome blue ray collection of my favorite movies and shoes.

                  For a lead role in a cage?

                      Working from home sounds like a much BETTER idea.

                        Thats exactly what I have been mulling over.

                          I have been thinking of working at home too, but I cant figure out a way to unclog peoples toilets from home.
