You win a $200 mil jackpot... what would be your next move?

My Move: Call in sick. Others can comment on the GF / BF thingy: Since I already turned pro.

    I handle millions of dollars on a daily basis and am crucial to day to day operations at work, so I probably would not call in sick. That would tip everyone off because I am too reliable LOL

    I think I would 'ease into' making plans for claiming etc. Would probably open a safe deposit box right away, make copies of everything etc. I do not want to claim the cash and not have a plan. As soon as the dough hits my bank account I would want to know exactly when and what it will be used for.

    I actually don't think I would quit my job, or even tell anybody about the win. As stressful as work (and bosses) can be sometimes, I enjoy the challenge. And it would almost be like an undercover boss experience for me; someone puts me down and I give a royal F-you.

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

      Ahhhh...I would call into work using the rest of my sick days. Then go in and quit!  Wouldnt give a reason except to say I'm able to explore more opportunities in my life at this point.  Or something like that.  Though I would be nervous about quitting before actually confirming my winnings...

        Thanks for the opportunity of allowing the Forum to glance into your work regimen- pretty impressive l must add.l and most people do not handle millions of dollars on a daily basis so our situation is very different. But given a choice- l would rather handle millions of dollars that were mine than millions that just passed through my fingers LM.

          I Agree!..If confirmed: quitting never felt so good.

                I wouldn't quit my job right away, but I would give my 2 weeks notice. I like everyone that I work with and when someone up and quits at my job, it screws everyone else over and makes more work for them.

                During that 2 weeks, I can deal with my new found wealth and figure out what I'm going to do. Smile

                  Your very lucky if you can pull that off. Often the 'worst' in people come out when they know you have a lot of money.  Even the nicest of people turn bad when they think they are 'owed' or 'due' something.  I have seen this happen MANY times and would not give them the opportunity.  I would say goodby on good terms.  Remember your life would be changed while theirs would be the same and that creates the animosity.

                    So agree with this.  I know someone who was being "harassed" constantly over a 3 million dollar win.  Co-workers friends family etc, all from different directions.  And when he said no, the ugliness came out.

                          Point Taken TSC- However l  have yet to read of any jackpot winner" giving two weeks notice" after bagging a sizeable jackpot.The $170 mil MM winner last year from Socal threw in the work towel the following day, as did that project Mgr from Minn who was part of a 3 way split jackpot . As they say" Money changes things- especially work plans"..
