Default What are your pet peeves !

Guys this one drives me crazy . We had a lottery winner come forward recently from Edmonton, and they won $50,000,000 seven months ago but just came forward to bring in the ticket .
Well my co workers daughter works with the lady who won the jackpot , and she took two weeks off but came back to work as she's not quitting her job .

You know what should happen in a case like this , they should take the money back and give it to someone like me who wants to quit his job lol .
I can't believe people don't have enough hobbies to keep themselves occupied enough that they have to continue working ?
This lady is in her late 40's I believe so I think that would be a great age to retire .

If I won I may hang around work for a few weeks just to tick the others off , but that's about it . Actually I wouldn't even tell them I quit . I just wouldn't show up for work till they figured it out lol

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Rick I'm with you, I win that much money then it would not take me too long to pick it up, I hope that she shares it around as it just far too much for one Family. N

People do weird things when they are still in shock! It won't last long I bet. Travel or other " yippee!" opportunities will come along soon.

I'd have picked up the money the same day and stepped off the planet and never said a word to anyone...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

If I won I would have to go back to work so I could quit.

I retired without winning the lottery. If I won the $50M, I would have been out as quickly as possible.

Some people have a problem visualizing $500 all at once, never mine $50m. When she is ready, I'm sure she will make the decision that is right for her.

Now, if I won that kind of coin, I'm pretty sure I would retire post haste.... but before I did I would pay my boss a visit. Just long enough to drop my pants and bend over whist telling her where she can kiss me. But, that's just me.....

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
