He wins the lottery and doesn't go back to work because he "hates his job".
Never having to set the alarm clock to go to work again was the dream fulfilled by one lucky Australian.
There are many cases of lucky lottery winners who continue with their daily lives and their work, despite having seen their bank account increase overnight. Stories of winners who play individually or who decide to share their bets and in this way, also their fortune.
Sharing lottery bets is very common, trying your luck with friends, family or playing in clubs or groups makes the chances of winning a prize greater.
But the situation was different for five Canadian co-workers who went to lunch and decided to play the money left over from the bill on a lottery ticket. Luck smiled on them and they won a million dollars. So far everything seems perfect, but no, it wasn't for them. The person in charge of guarding the ticket fled before the rest found out about their fortune and went to his native country, Thailand.
This makes us think that, when it comes to sharing bets, you should do it safely, without any traitorous friend being able to escape with the prize. This is impossible to happen to you playing in Lottofy's pools and syndicates where your prizes go directly to your balance.
And when talking about work and coworkers, perhaps the dream of many when playing the lottery is not having to set the alarm clock to go to work and stop seeing the face of his boss every day. Well, the protagonist of this story made it come true.
He stops working because he "hates it".
The story of this Australian man, who did not want to reveal his identity in order to remain anonymous, is that of an honest worker who went out shopping one Saturday morning and took the opportunity to buy a ticket for that day's draw at TattsLotto.
The lucky man did not usually play the lottery, but that day luck was on his side and he became one of the 14 winners of the lottery's top category. The prize for each of the winners was almost one and a half million Australian dollars, about 900,000 euros at the exchange rate.
As we were saying, this man did not usually play the lottery, so when he told his wife the news, the surprise was double. According to the winner: "I hadn't mentioned the decision to my wife, so on Sunday I said 'well, I'm going to check my lottery ticket to see if I don't have to go to work on Monday'. I went on the web, I checked my numbers and realized I wouldn't have to. I called her to go over it with me and, after she saw it too...we both started screaming!"
He was clear, he would not go back to his job and the first thing he would do would be to pay off the mortgage. He was also considering studying or investing part of the award, although what was clear to him was that, for the time being, he was going to be a good househusband. "I hate my job, so I can't wait until I can quit, but my wife loves what she does, so she'll keep working. I could use this time to study something new, but for the time being, I think I'll just be a good househusband!"
Money that came to them like it fell from the sky and changed their life, and you, would you do like this lucky guy and stop working or are you more like the wife who is passionate about her job?
