Curse Of The Lotto Winner

Yes, believe it or not she wishes she would have torn the ticket up....

Attached Image QUOTE
Since winning the lottery two years ago, her husband, Jack Whittaker, has been arrested twice for drunken driving and has been ordered into rehab. He pleaded no contest Monday to a misdemeanor assault charge for attacking a bar manager, and is accused in two lawsuits of making trouble at a nightclub and a racetrack.

There have been several thefts involving Whittaker's vehicle, his office and his house. One of the thefts occurred at his home in September on the same day an 18-year-old friend of Whittaker's granddaughter was found dead there. The death remains under investigation...

Winner Lotto The Curse

This shows a different side to lottery winners; usually the public sees someone winning the lottery as changing their lives in a positive way. This story shows us that there is a negative side as well. In a way you feel sorry for someone who is going through the things that this man and his family has gone through, but on the other hand, you think that this is a risk that one who comes into a lot of money takes. Very sad story.

That's why I like the quote that says "Fortune does not change people, it unmasked them". I think it is so true.

Sad. It may not seem realistic, but our local Lottery Plus is a good show of how simple excitement can get people carried away into the negative (quite literally). Not to go Biblical here, but... "The love of money is the root of all evil".

The way I see it, we all have problems, rich and poor alike. But if you're going to have problems anyway, I'd prefer to be rich rather than poor.

:spock: Did you read the article?. This man is having serious problems in his family because of his unwise decisions, he knows what it's like to be so rich that nobody can tell him anything. The kind of problems a poor person has and a rich person has are very different, so don't wish for what you may not be able to handle....you know...there is always someone up there listening... :excl:

:spock: Even if it mean your house being robbed or your kid dying? That does not seem very wise to me, but I guess the level of stress you are willing to take is based on your perception of things. You can be poor and have to struggle with bills or end up like the subject of the thread... I rather be poor thanks.

Let's remember that it isn't the money that really caused this man's problems. It is how he chose to handle the money.

Many people have lots of money and they don't become alcoholics, for example. Being as wealthy as he is, he needs to move to a more secure home like other weathly people. There are reasons they live behind gates and walls. Unfortunately, security is a necessary evil if you are truly wealthy.

It is foolish to think having millions of dollars doesn't need to change how you live your life. People play the lottery and claim they wouldn't change their lives or how they live them if they win. Well, then, why are you buying that lottery ticket at all? The problem with getting your money through a lottery win is that it comes all at once. When you earn the money, the change is generally much slower. This allows you to gradually adjust to the changes necessary to live with such money successfully.

Still...I wouldn't mind winning the lottery myself, but maybe only for a few million, not hundreds of millions... lol
