What would you do if you won the lottery?
Currently there is about 38 million Euro (56 million US Dollar) in the German lottery jackpot. This is actually the highest Lottery jackpot in Germany thus far and man does it show.
Last night we went into our local supermarket to buy some potatoes. While my hubby went in to get them I went to the little newsagent that is right by the exit. I love to go into the newsagents to browse the glossy magazines and stuff. Last night I could not even get in. People were actually queueing to play the lotto. It was insane.
I admit I did play as well but in true geek fashion I did it online. Yesterday's jackpot was only 32 million Euro and it was not cracked so the madness continues in the run up to Saturday's draw. As I was thinking about the jackpot not being cracked I wondered what would I actually do with 38 Million Euro or 56 Million Dollars for my American friends. I do whine about money a lot but when it came to this unimaginable figure I had no idea.
Well of course I would buy a house and a nice car and get our families something great. I would make some donations to charities but what would you do with the rest? Would I keep working or would I stay home. Would I travel the world from then on or would I stay home and only travel a little? Questions, more questions and no answers.
Listening to the radio yesterday made me smile. They asked how would you tell your boss that you won the lottery? People came up with the oddest things. From shitting on his desk to giving him 50 bucks and tell him to get something nice to buying him a new car before feckin' off.
So my question to you is not only how you would tell your boss but what would YOU do with all that money?
