All of your long lost “friends” and relatives end up reconnecting with you again “just to say hi”
This was my friend’s solution to retirement back when I was younger and it just sounds so ridiculous. I know it’s not the answer, however it’s nice to dream. Actually, in all honesty, I would NOT want to win the lottery in the end because I know that 85% of the people who won it ended up worse off than before the win. They were either bankrupt, dead, or in prison after numerous years of winning the cash. I couldn’t imagine getting 285 million dollars in a single day after working at a heating and air conditioning company for $75 a day. It sounds just like a dream, however it ends up being a bad nightmare. Your freedom is gone and your life gets absolutely hectic and complicated. That does not sound enjoy a dream to me. The local contractor that sold the winning 1.7 billion dollar ticket was swamped afterwards by people thinking they could win again from buying there. I am happy with my job working for the local contractor and not having my phone ring non stop with solicitors looking to take some of my cash. All of your long lost “friends” and relatives end up reconnecting with you again “just to say hi”. My heating and air conditioning rep told myself and others that you end up with a lot more stress and die younger after winning that kind of cash. I know you’re saying “yeah, whatever, I’ll still take the cash”, however what happens after you have everything you want and still feel hollow inside? You would genuinely find a way to try and fill that emptiness with awful habits I’m sure. Keep your job working for the local contractor and just enjoy life, it doesn’t get any better.
