He Wins. He Quits. [VIDEO]
Remember last week that group of lucky folks at Beal Distributing, here in Sioux Falls, won some money in the Power Ball lottery? 28 workers at Beal Distributing will split a $1 million jackpot.
Once they divide up the cash, after taxes, it probably won't change each individuals lifestyle. But it will probably pay off some bills and provide for some nice quality of life purchases.
But how about the individuals that win the really big jackpots? Ya know how you hear of all of those lottery winners that say "Even though I've won a Bazzilion dollars, I'm still going to be the same person"? Ya, right.
How about a little refreshing honesty? Fidencio Argeta, a 60 year old dockworker from Long Island won a $26.5 million Lotto jackpot — and promptly quit his job.
On Thursday Argueta picked up a lump sum check for $12,335,306. Argueta intendeds to pay off his debts and buy a new car. I'm guessing, if he's smart, he also plans on changing his name, moving to some ocean front property, and not leaving any forwarding address.
Good for him. It's great to see a guy, who sounds like he can really use the money, win some extra jing.
But let's be honest, it is going to change his life. It changes everone who wins big bucks. Sometimes for the good. Sometimes for the not so good. Either way it really seems to change the people around the winner.
Check out the story below of a lottery winner and how the money changed his life. He seems like a nice guy. His son seems like a blood sucking leach. See what you think?
