Mo' Money, Mo' Problems
You’ve heard the horror stories before about people winning the lottery only to blow their wad in an absurdly short amount of time. It’s actually quite common for some “unfortunate events” to follow many winners who go from rags to riches overnight. I think I’d have a pretty hard time rifling through hundreds of thousands of dollars in slush with nothing to show for it at the end of the day, but hey… I’ve never won the lotto.
When 17-year-old Jane Park won Britain’s Euromillions lottery, she became the youngest person in the country’s history to cash in on her luck. After her bank account hit seven digits, the teen found herself overwhelmed with her new found wealth. Now she’s 21-years-old and talking about suing the lottery for negligence, claiming she was too young to receive such a large sum of cash and now she misses the days when she didn’t have it… wait, what?
Yep. This young millionaire just found out that money doesn’t buy happiness and wants to sue the lottery for… more money?
Sounds crazy. Because it is.
Read on to find out what she’s been spending her winnings on…
Just Your Average Girl
Jane Park is just your average, everyday young millionaire. She enjoys taking holiday in the Maldives, buying designer clothes, and partying her face off at night clubs.
What many don’t realize though is that with all this stuff, something is still missing:
“People look at me and think, ‘I wish I had her lifestyle, I wish I had her money.’ But they don’t realize the extent of my stress. I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?”
Now that Park spends her time traveling the world, she wishes she could trade in this view off a luxury yacht or cruise ship for a more humble vacation in the gloomy and drab Benidorm, Spain. Nobody’s forcing you in that tub, Jane… some of us have never even seen the beach in our lifetime.
She told Sunday People, “…although I’ve been to the Maldives I much prefer Benidorm because nobody is looking down at you. You can get as drunk as you want. In the Maldives, you can’t go and get absolutely hammered.”
GAAAWWDD THE MALDIVES ARE THE WORRSSTT
What’s a Girl to Do?
Be careful what you wish for Ms. Park, although you might be complaining now that every guy you meet is just after your money. If you want it all to go away how are you going to afford the perfect designer purse to match that lifeguard outfit next time you want to save the club from drowning?
I think we figured out why you’re thinking about suing the lottery… for giving you money… and asking for more money…
