...What would you guys/gals do if you (or yourself and coworkers) hit the big Powerball or something, for about $200mil? Since I'm too young to play lottery (legally at least), here's what my dad would do:
"Walk into my boss's office, and say 'See ya. Your truck's in the parking lot and its on fire. That crappy work laptop was stolen from my car last week. See 'ya.' And walk out." Meanwhile, I'd be in the new Mercedes in the parking lot with said work laptop, cracking the Comcast Office's wireless network. Then speed off in said Mercedes to our big new (to us) house in Levittown (Middletown Township) or mansion in western PA.

Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
Well,let's see...I would first thank God for allowing it to happen (because that's the ONLY way it could happen with my luck) . Then I would tell everyone at my place of work to "kiss off" while the song "Take this Job and Shove It" blares from the loudspeakers on my sound truck parked in the parking lot...(mood music) .
After that, I would take it one day at a time - although I really like Togol's idea about the Fire Department practice...
Can't you sense the love I have for my job?

As there are 5 in our lottery syndicate it would have to split 5 ways.
1) All 5 would quit our jobs so the training dept would shut down for a while 2) Move to Germany to be beside my daughter (and get some sun for a change) 3)Sack the Scottish football team (sorry soccer) and invest in new players 4) no no might be easier to change the rules of football so we win all the time 5)Raise an army and invade England (again) 6)Buy a big motor bike and ride off into the sunset, me and mrs Kenbo never to be seen again.
