Since none of us picked all of the Mega Millions Jackpot numbers drawn last night, today is another work day for all of us.
You may think that’s sad until you think about how winning a jackpot of the size some player in South Carolina has won would impact your life.
First, you’d have to change your phone number because regardless of how hard you tried, the word would get out that you were the big jackpot winner.
You’d no doubt be bombarded with requests for cash from friends, long-lost family members, and charities you’d never heard of before winning big.
You’d have to move because requests for donations would be so numerous that they’d fill your mailbox every day.
You’d have to stop frequenting your favorite restaurant because people hoping to get some of your winnings wouldn’t leave you alone any time you were out in public.
And, you’d have to hire a team of lawyers and accountants to keep dear old Uncle Sam from getting his hands on more of your prize than he deserves.
Sure you’d be able to quit your job, but then what would you have to complain about.
I’m not sure about you, but I’m happy with my home, and my phone number, my job, and my friends.
And last but not least, I kind of like having an excuse to go to work.
That’s the way I see it.
