Especially if you the sole winner of a $150 mil plus jackpot.

A conservative estimate for me is " Soon, Real Soon".Dance

        Not all of us have day jobs. I like what I do, so I wouldn't quit anything.

            Probably a month or two. I would use up my vacation days i worked hard for first, then give a two weeks notice since they have treated me good.

              If I worked for somebody it would depend on what kinda guy the Boss was.

              If he was a jerk I wouldn't even bother notifying him that I quit. He'd just have to wonder what ever happened to me.

              If he was a good guy I'd give notice and stay until he got a replacement for me if necessary.

                    I would wait until the check cleared and then I would be out of there.

                          I have half jokingly said to people I work with, "When I win the Powerball I am going to change my phone number and disappear immediately."  In order not to raise suspicion I think I would give notice of some sort and TRY to maintain a sense of normalcy.  I deal with the public a lot and it would be pretty hard not to tell the occasional jack azz to go fvck off....

                            Amen to that for my self employed job. The day job would get 2-6 weeks to wrap things up.

                              You know in some states this might allow them to keep your accumulated vacation pay.
