Underthinking Lotto Jackpot


I always apologise for not writing enough, so I won’t today, but attempt to win you back with dedicated writing of the blog, also I have been asked by many people to start it up again.

Can you please write your blog again.

So today I have been thinking about this story, where a checkout operator in training in Countdown has won 26.5 million dollars in the lotto, and has vowed to remain at work. On first glance this seems like a good decision I mean money shouldn’t change your life, and sure he has a lot of money now but it could disappear quickly, so retaining employment is a wise decision, and you don’t want to leave others in the lurch with your sudden departure.  Then I thought a bit deeper about the situation, firstly it is not like it would be hard to replace him, nor is his work so specialized its of vital importance for the company to retain him.

Unlike the safety inspector at Chernobyl –who quit the day after he won lotto with disastrous results 
 Secondly it’s not like he needs the job right now, Labour keeps banging on about the high rate of unemployment, surely he is a position now to step aside and let a schoolgirl do his job. 

Thanks to Trevor, young Mary will never fulfill  her ambition of being a checkout chick.
Thirdly he didn’t win $10000 which is handy but not life-changing he won 26.5 millions which if invested wisely is enough that one never has to work again. At the very least this amount of money gives you a buffer to take a few years out to retrain in a field with a more stable progression path and one in which you won’t be replaced with a computer in a couple of years.

Pictured: Trevor in 1 year.

Although on the wise investment front, I am not sure Trevor is up to it, I mean theoretically he already has no money. On Campbell live last night he said, and I quote "Mate, I could bet you $26.5 million I'll be at that check out tomorrow morning. The company I work for is just one big family, we all look after each other. I couldn't ask for a better place to work.". The story confirms Trevor didn’t show up to work this morning, and in NZ verbal contracts are binding, especially recorded ones. So I guess this means John Campbell is $26.5 million dollars richer.




"Trevor lives here, and I am going to collect on my bet"
Trevor cited the people he works with as a reason to stay in his job, surely at his job it would be frowned upon to just hang out a lot, so Trevor could just arrange to meet his favorite colleagues ever night or every Friday at the local for a drink. Also how much does Trevor actually love his workplace seeing as he brought the winning ticket at a Foursquare, when he works at a Countdown?




Although I have to admit this cheery little fellow is irresistible.
Trevor claimed he lived week-to-week like 90% of people, (I am pretty sure he made up that statistic, 2/3 of people know you can just make up statistics). I am sure on minimum wage he was tight for cash, but surely asking your mum for $50 for petrol so you can show her your 26.5 million winning lottery check is really tight. I think Trevor may have been living day-to-day at best. Surely if you have a guaranteed 26.5 million coming, you could splurge on a tank of gas.




"Andddd......that's 2pm, now I can fill up'
The other interesting point of this story is where Trevor is described as “NZ most eligible bachelor”, interesting no source is given, I am guessing his mum said that. I don’t mean to be presumptuous but I don’t think being lucky enough to win lotto is a trait women tend to look for in a mate. The type of woman you attract, that have bank balance at the top of their ideal qualities in a mate are probably not the type Trevor wants or needs. Incidentally I am pretty sure Cleo just named NZBachelor of the year last week and Trevor wasn’t even in the running.


Maybe I am mistaken and this guy was just the last person to win a large lotto jackpot, I mean why else would ladies be attracted to him??

  2. On Tuesday, Bieber was spotted driving to get some frozen yogurt with his friend Sean Kingston in Diddy's white Gallardo Spyder.
    " But what I have found in working with this is that if you are all caught up and it occurs to you to just open, there is so much energy which is available to wake up —there is so much more energy available at this time. Looking back, I can’t help thinking that 1977 was a far darker year than those that came before it, mainly perhaps because it was marked by the violent irruption into the British cultural mainstream of Punk.

  5. The book the 'The Weight Loss Cure' popularized and resurrected the HCG diet.
    It was something I had to research and explore, since my patients were asking for
    it, and I had really turned away from this approach.

    You will again get a well toned body with perfect curves and shapes.

  18. Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
