I think what they need is a good old fashioned  Dunk to cool them off.  Yes Nod

The "floating pool" the workers took part in has been going on for years, with certain members joining in or sitting a week out depending on personal choice, Maloney said.

The lady's personal choice was to sit that week out, she doesn't get to change her mind after it's over.

Exactly. All she can do is be happy for her colleagues.

They would be smart to offer some type of settlement to the lady who did not play

Most likely she will file some sort of lawsuit

Save the time and the money and pay her off, right or wrong it will be for the best in the long run

Personally,I agree with you,RJOH.But I can just see the lawyers chomping at the bit to try to get her to sue...so they can get a third of her winnings.Happens almost all the time when a pool wins.

Point taken but here is my take:  I work in an industry in which we freely share what we earn and discuss topics such as net worth.  Since my compensation is purely based on performance, there is nothing to fear about others knowing what I earn.  Transparency is a good thing in that regard.  Ditto for those in government and military.  But those whose compensation is based a bit on office politics, I understand secrecy of compensation is often demanded by the company/organization and adhered to by the workers.  The fact others know what you make or have does not necessarily open you up to handout or loan requests.  So I understand the secrecy some people place on their income and net worth, but I see it coming from either a position of fear or even ignorance of one's own net worth and not from legitimate reasons.  Most people know that Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Tiger Woods, Paul McCartney, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama are well off to wealthy individuals, but I don't see people hitting any of them up for handouts or loans.  In fact, Barack Obama is hitting up Americans for handouts for his re-election effort in record-setting fashion. 

I am also a very prudent individual, and I would only purchase a luxury item only if the total expenditure and upkeep represents less than 10 percent of my annual income.  I also like freedom when it comes to the automobiles I drive, so I would not be interested in a lease scenario.  I like to keep it simple when it comes to such things, and leases are anything but simple.

You are clearly speaking for yourself and other like-minded socialists.  But 172 million or whatever the cash value was is just right for a person like me and my LLC.  Give it away...I can see such people ending up on "Curse of the Lottery".  Giving it away might make you feel good, but tell me how things fare for you once you have given most of it away and some unexpected calamity arises that wipes out your remaining stash.  Tell me how readily others come to your aid then.  You might find a few, but unless you became a larger than life benevolent giver in your area, I think we might find you  poor and destitute and rueing the day you won the lottery like so many lottery jackpot rags-to-riches-back-to-rags stories.

From having been in car sales/management there in nothing really complex about a lease.

You pick out your vehicle, the term and mileage, then simply sign and drive. I leased hundreds of vehicles. The turnaround for paper work is

usually just a couple of hours. Another great advantage of leasing, is the great write off if you have a business, and your car is always under

warranty. Cheers

Thats ONE way to look at.Another is to realize that some <snip> is almost always waiting in the wings expecting everyone in the pool to ante up his share.If they don't ante up he will sue them.Even if he doesn't win the real winners don't get their money for several years because the courts are so slow and are out lawyer fees.No thanks,I'll play my numbers alone.

Congratulations to this jackpot winner. This is the 2nd time in the year 2012 that a Powerball Jackpot winner ended up in a double number.

I just don't do auto leases. Common tactic of some car salesmen is to take emphasis off price of vehicle and instead start manipulating the lease term and payment amount.  Perhaps high end dealerships like exotic car dealerships and those that sell Maybachs and Bentleys don't engage in such shenanigans, but I know lower end dealers do which is why car salesmen are rated negatively among sales people. Ditto for insurance agents who sell product that offers highest commission vice best and most coverage for family.

I also don't do things anymore for tax write off. I pay my fair share and I am so anti-Obama.  Off topic...the thing that intrigues me is that a citizen found telling less than the truth before a Congressional panel will swiftly find himself/herself incarcerated while a Congress person or president who lies to the American people usually gets re-elected. A citizen who under reports taxes usually ends up in lockup while Chairman of House Ways and Means (I won't name him but I think he served NY and has a distinctive name that rhymes with Charlie Rangle) keeps his post and stays free.  OWS should be less concerned about the 1 percent who worked for what they have and instead rail against the hypocrisy of the White House and Congress, especially those Dems.

Yeah, like anything else a consumer must be armed with current dealers invoices, sales/lease incentives and promotions, etc. to cut the best deal.

I agree with you about Obama and the tricky Dem's.  Bat

Agree with stupid Dupe Alert"i like it when a group of people win, 172 would be too much for one person, if i have had the sole winning ticket i would be giving most of it away"

I thought the same way when I was in Grammar School ........... then I moved on to Junior High School and became a mature adult!

Wealth trickles down and Poverty trickles up! Wealthy people create jobs!!!

"...car salesmen are rated negatively..."

Roger that, OldSchool! Big Time!

Most people consider car salesmen even sleazier than lawyers!

They have to lie to make a living and they get so used to lying they never stop.

Joe-Joe Biden was a used car salesman before he started screwing up the country.
