What’s the First Thing You’d Do If You Won the Powerball? [POLL]
A good portion of the US has dollar signs in their eyes now that the Powerball jackpot has soared to an insane $800 million.
The drawing is slated for Saturday evening, which means a healthy chunk of Americans will be glued to their TV sets in the hopes all their financial problems will disappear.
The odds of winning are just slightly against you and everyone else at one-in-292.2 million, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dream, right? All of which leads us to a very important and time-honored question: what would you do immediately after realizing you won?
Perhaps you’d barge into your boss’ office and tell him off as you quit. Maybe you’d go out and buy a brand new car or two…or dozen. Or are you the type to pay off the mortgage (or buy a new house if you’re renting)? Job, car, house seem to be popular things at the top of everyone’s list, but maybe there’s something else you’d be inclined to do now that your bank account is bogged down with zeroes and commas.
