What Would You Do?

While watching CNN this morning, I saw a story about 7 office workers who won the Mega Millions Lotto. These workers have been doing this lotto pool for years now. There was an eighth guy who decided not to play the lotto that day. He has been playing the lotto with the group for years. So, it's not like he's just some random guy. The day he decided not to play, is the day the group won the millions.

My question to you guys is:
If it were you, would you look out for the guy that didn't play that day and give him some of the money?

I would give him something. Not a whole lot. However, I would buy him something nice or give him a couple of thousands. That's just the type of person I am.

Since he had been playing as long as them, I would give him some. It only seems fair.

Because he's been part of the group for years I would give him some money.

I don't think it's because they are greedy... they just got lucky to win and that person didn't participate.

Personally I would not share the total price... I would divide the price with the other workers and that's it. If one of the group wants to give him something of his own share, well... that's a different story Happy

lottery is based on chance. the more you play the better chance you have. he chose not to play so he should not get any money. people in my area won the on the extra and they didn't share with the people that did not buy the extra just because.
