I’ve wondered for most of my life why this is even a question. If I won the lottery would I continue to work. Are you out of your fucking mind? Hell no I wouldn’t continue to work.
Many years ago before bills were a big thing, people had to work to eat. Whether they had a farm or whatever, every day was spent working so that they could live and eat and exist. Maybe they were feeding animals or cleaning up their property or fixing their house cause it was made out of sticks.
But today we work because society says we have to. Otherwise you don’t live. You could go live in the woods like Mick Dodge, or you can have internet and Fritos. What’s it going to be? If you decided you don’t want to live in the woods and not under a bridge, you have to have money, and in order to do that you have to work.
Well, if I HAD MONEY, I wouldn’t need to fucking work, would I? No. And I wouldn’t either. I’d work at never fucking working again.
Many moons ago when the lottery got up to a record breaking $360+ million, this older Florida couple won it. They were in the paper being asked what they were going to do. They said they were going to buy a couple new appliances and put the rest in the bank, and they weren’t going to stop working.
It must be nice to have their jobs, laying around getting blow jobs all day long. But for the rest of us IT SUCKS. New appliances?! WHY THE FUCK DO YOU PLAY THE FUCKING LOTTERY?! To get new appliances? Jesus fucking… go on the Price Is Right if you want new appliances, and stop taking my retirement fund!
This other fuck, just a few years ago, won a huge lottery. Did he need it? No. He owned a successful construction company, was already a multi-millionaire, and owned a private jet. When asked what he was going to do with his new lotto winnings, he said he was going to buy himself a private helicopter, because he’s always wanted one. Then he laughed at all of us poor unfortunate blue collar assholes who struggle to get through life while an ALREADY MILLIONAIRE PLAYS AND WINS THE LOTTERY SO YOU CAN’T.
Fuck that. If I win the lottery there’s no question what I’m doing. I’m buying 60 acres of land (or more) in the country, and building a house right in the middle of it. I want to be able to stand on my roof and look around in every direction and not see another person. Then I’m never working again and people will be lucky if they ever see me again. I’m going to live the life of luxury on my property.
But continue to work? Continue to make my boss richer while I continue to struggle to get by? Fuck you and fuck that.
