One Co-Worker In The Pool Opted Out Of The $319,000,000 Jackpot
So what would you do? What should they do? A group of 7 co-workers who regularly played the lottery just came forth today to claim their $319,000,000 Lottery Jackpot! But there is only tiny little problem. There were always 8 co-workers who regularly played the lottery. This week however, the eighth guy was out. He said, “He didn’t feel lucky.” Boy, he sure was right! They asked him not once but twice if he wanted in. Both times he said no.
Another funny sidenote. While the winning team guy was waiting to purchase the ticket, he reached out of line to buy a candy bar, and a pushy customer went up to the desk before he could. Had the pushy guy not been so rude and cut in line, he would have been standing in the winning spot in line and would be cashing in his $319,000,000 jackpot ticket. I think each co-worker gets something like $19,000,000 . So here’s the moral and ethicical dilemna. Should the “8th guy out guy” get at least get a little something? What if each co-worker kicked in $500,000 each. He’d would walk away with about Three & A Half Million Dollars. It looks like this. $3.5 million dollars. He’s in the office building pretty much alone now anyway because; just about everyone of his co-workers has already their job;) This is where we learn if greed wins out over ethics…
