If I was lucky enough to win I do not think I would be too concerned about what people thought of me as long as the check did not bounce at the dealership and jewelry store.  And any other place for high dollar items I would like to go into with my winnings.  I just hate when people look down at you like you are nothing to them.  But if I was lucky and had a lot of money I would be the one laughing every time I checked my bank account balance and saw all those zeros.-weshar75

    I would like to cut somebody a check for $5M and have them scream out,"I CAN'T TAKE YOUR FIVE MILLION DOLLARS BECAUSE YOU WON IT IN THE LOTTERY". That will really make my day. Unfortunately, nobody in their right mind will ever do that.

      John Jacob Astor skinned rabbits to build his wealth, now his family is one of the most prominent in that upper crust society.

      I wish skinnin' squirrels paid off like that.

      I'd be sittin' in the catbird seat by now.

          " I just hate when people look down at you like you are nothing to them."

          That's how I look at most people I meet, weshar.

          I can't help it.

          I'm just snooty. 

          Very, very snooty.

          I wouldn't look at you like that though, buddy.
