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.

That's why you time things so they don't find out you won until after you've left.

        l recall reading an account of a lottery winner a few years back who said that when her Co workers found out she had won, they would often invite her along for lunch/ dinner- order up all kinds of good stuff and leave the bill for her to pay, she said she quit going out with them.Another coworker gave her this sad story about her house being in foreclosure and just to give herself peace of mind, she did her own detective work and found out that the house was paid off.When she confronted her " friend"..The response was something like " You couldn't take my word for it,  you had to go spy on me?" She quit her job and doesn't keep in contact with them anymore or perhaps to a lesser degree than before.Sad but true.l think she also said that she budgets pretty well and even buys stuff at Thrift Stores. I " think" she walked away with under $10 mil after taxes.Anyone else remember this account?

              That's kind of my situation now with work. I'm being asked to do things I don't agree with or can't be done and it's really getting to me. I've been in my current job for 10 years and department 14 years, while my manager was hired from the outside with little experience in what we do, has only been there a couple of years, and is running our department into the ground.

              I'd probably call in sick so I can start planning my exit. I'd arrange for the money to be claimed in the most private manner possible according to my state's laws, make a financial plan for the money and after it's claimed and my income starts coming in, I'd probably wait a little while until the excitement dies down, then give my notice. What I'd probably do after I leave is take some time off to do what I want to do, then start volunteering a few times a week, so I can have "work" to go to everyday so I'll still feel productive.

              I've been trying to get out of my job for a while now and so far, not much luck snagging interviews. It was once a great place to work but with the change in management, it has all gone downhill.

                      Man, I've thought about this on and off for a long time.

                      There are times, like yesterday, if I won a jackpot, I would be gone from my job so fast I wouldn't even bother to say bye. I like the people I work with, it's the occasional idiotic customer that drives me insane.

                      But, the smart thing would be to bide my time, get my affairs in order, and make a graceful exit, so no one would suspect I won.

                      Oh well, back to reality. Gotta win it first.

                        Whoa- Sounds like you working in a Gulag Prisoner 6. But l know what you mean. Buddy of mine is in a similar situation. His new manager ran a candy factory & knows as much about computers as Gumby does about being a Jedi. Hope you win soon.

                          Hoping you win it soon as well rcb. The old adage " Patience is a virtue" can wear thin, especially if you have been playing for a long time without winning some serious Crown.

                              Thanks for the good wishes. The whole office is becoming a total mess due to lack of leadership. I'm looking for either a win or another job, whichever comes first.
