I just read an article about a man who lost homes to Katrina, but won the $93,000,000 Powerball jackpot this past January. He didn’t claim the prize for nearly four months because quote:
He wanted to wrap up some of his construction work and finish his outstanding contracts. In fact, Hunter’s wife Dianne said he was still at work this week.
Wow, I respect the guy. I’ve told Stacie that if I won a big jackpot, I would still give the courtesy of a 2 week notice and work really hard to wrap things up. I’m sure she would do the same, and would probably even do some pro bono work on the side for the hospital (mainly because she loves her patients). But to wait almost 4 months? Nah, I’d go the very next business day and cash that puppy in!
