She might have been able to 'pay her bills', had she not been buying all those lottery tickets since forever.

Chances are, she'll go right back to buying lottery tickets, and after she pays the IRS a good chunk of that money, she won't be all that much richer.

Working at a factory, I doubt she is getting any help.

I heard a story of some loser winning like $200 from a lottery scratchoff and losing SSI and foodstamps because of it.

You are not the judge or the jury. She works hard every day. Put your negativity in your pocket and share it with your family. Oh while you're add it buy you a lottery ticket.

Ah, yes, I'll go do my civic duty and support public education right now by buying a lottery ticket.

She's a sweet daughter. She deserves to have a vacation after few years of work. At least now she can afford to have a vacation and fix her mother's house. Hopefully she will use some for investment.

Use some for investment? I guess that would depend on the investment. After Uncle Sam gets through with her she'll have about $120,000 left. How much will it cost to fix mother's house?$20,000? How much will a vacation cost? Unless she's interested in some penny stocks or a nice little cd at .25%apy there's just not much left to do anything with.

When Willard starts feeling insecure and defeated and looks at himself and sees what a loser he is, he brags. He's really broke, unemployed, and uniformly despised by people who know him. Believe the braggart as you would a liar.

Willard can kill a lion when absent but he fears a mouse when present.

CHOW LOL
