  1. I just felt a little sorry for him that in his world, money guarantees happiness.

    It doesn’t.



  2. I am not sure about that lottery, but in many lottery's in the USA, the store that sold the winning ticket gets a fair amount of prize money too. So it is a big deal for the store. A few more generous store owners will share that money with the clerks that sell the tickets.

    As for having too much money, not to worry, by the time the tax accounts get done with it, the prize will be considerably reduced. In fact it would not surprise me if somehow they end up owing money.  

    • As far as I know, the store gets €50,000 and the money is tax free.

      The lottery company also offers "financial advice" to te winners.  They'll need it!

  3. Dear Grandad

    One day he announced to me with a smug smirk on his face that he had more money than he could possibly spend in a lifetime.

    Maybe he was hoping you would offer to help him spend it.

    Next time …




    • Hah!  He was probably wishing I would ask for a loan or something.  He was disappointed, if so.
