Just for the record, I didn't win the $370 million lottery

    I wouldn't quit if I won. I'd keep working for a while. Just go about my business and really irritate the piss out of everyone else before just getting up one day, walking out without saying a word and never look back.
  5. I wouldn't quit on the spot. I'd at least wait until they found my replacement. I like my boss and my co-workers; I wouldn't screw them over like that.

    I'd quit, move to the beach somewhere and offer to string for the local rag for free. I'm 34 and I know I'd be bored out of my mind within a year unless I had something to do on a fairly regular basis.

    I think that's why my dad, 62, won't retire, even though he could certainly afford to. He knows there's only so many rounds of golf he can play before going stir crazy.

    I actually have a plan on what to do with the money. What to do with my time is a thornier issue. Flying lessons. Lots of travel. But, like golf, there's only so much of that you can do. Thinking about it, you get an inkling on why some really rich people feel the need to have climbers drag them to the summit of Everest.

    I need to go check my tickets, but if I did win, I wouldn't quit on the spot. I'd be meeting with the financial planners and the lawyers to make sure the money is well protected for a long retirement. Then I'd wait a few days and give notice I'm out of there end of the month.
    Gives them enough time to find a replacement (if they're going to replace me) and get him/her up to speed on our system.

    I used to say I wouldn't quit my job but I would have a helicopter bring me to work every day. Now I'm thinking I probably would quit just so I could do stringer work for fun.
