People Imagine What They Would Keep The Same In Life If They Won The Lottery

I'd still be the same old me. With better clothes.

Oh to live the reality of 'The Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous!' Who hasn't dreamed about all the lavish and fantastical things we'd purchase if money was no object? Oh the places we could escape to. Many a daydream has been spent smiling about all the exotic journeys that could be taken. And we wonder about how drastically our lives would change, hopefully for the better. But even with all that coin, there has to be a thing or two that would remain a life constant. There is always something money can't replace or buy.

Redditor u/Cassius219 wondered how people would behave in life if they hit that lucky jackpot by asking.... If you won the lottery tomorrow, what is one thing that would stay the same about your life?

How much money my family thinks I have. ReshiWaystone

I would lie. I would tell my family that I won like $200K -taxes. That would explain several obvious changes in my life (ex. new car), but not enough for me to give them to do something stupid. Secretly, I would stupid money stashed away. counterslave

Love is Forever.... 

My partner. JeffersonBoi

My partner (wife) would be the same human being.

However, I know she wants lasik and braces, so she would immediately get those two, so I don't know that my partner would stay "the same" in the strictest of meanings. runasaur

You got skills.... 

My Reddit usage due to poor social skills. meekmillnumbertwofan

Those are now rich social skills. JJHarp

Go Gourmet....

Won the lottery yesterday. $10. Ka-ching. didn't change my life much. was happy for about a minute. Bought a nice roast beef sandwich. pretty soon things were back to normal. BuppBuppBupp

Arby's? Did you splurge and get the Half Pounder (formerly known as the Roast Beef MAX and the Big Montana)? Mail_Order_Lutefisk

Lazy Days....

I would remain unemployed. LMFAO. manmeasand

Trade in People... 

My dog. Quixotic9000

Man, my garbage sister-in-law had an aging Labrador with a couple tumors. Noticed one holiday the tumors were still there. Asked when she was going to take care of them.

She literally replied "why would I fix this dog when I could get a new one for less?" I'm still mad. K24Z3

You have to want it....

I don't see winning the lotto helping with the alcoholism. bl1y

You could go to very expensive rehab in Malibu. ScaredLettuce

Tip the Scales.... 

I'd still be fat. But my wallet would be too, so I have that going for me. GettingTherapy

Unless you really love food then losing weight might be easier after you win the lottery anyway. Can afford better food, no stress from having to work and if you don't work anymore after that then you'd have more time to do more active stuff. I can imagine rich people have an easier time staying in shape because even fitness is kind of a luxury. Chromattix

Every Penny Counts..... 

I would remain the motherf***ing penny pincher that I am. sourceofnightmares

For me I think my mindset would flip.

Rather than focusing on getting the maximum value for every dollar I spend (which I would still do), my primary focus would be getting my money to generate the maximum amount of income it could generate for every dollar I spend on it.

Being so wealthy that my money makes me richer is the ideal financial scenario in my opinion. AmNotSatan

My Ride or Die!

My best friend. I know friends are temporary for most but me and this guy have been through thick and thin, depression and relationship problems we're there for each other. We've fought for each other and one time I knew we were going to get our butts beat but I went with him just so he wouldn't get jumped by himself, he's helped me so much through financial situations being that his family is pretty comfortable on wealth and mine is dirt poor. People at this point think we are brothers and I think for the most part we practically are. He just gave me my first car because he bought a new one and just had that one left over. Definitely would cut off a lot of people when I acquire that fuck you type of money but not him. That's my boy. Dizzy_Glizzy

This Ole House. 

Small house. I ain't buying a gigantic house because then I'd have to clean the thing, and I'm not spending all day doing that.

Also, cars that barely run. I enjoy fixing them. ThatWun

Kraft Services. 

I'd still eat Kraft Dinner, I'd just eat more of it, and with like really expensive ketchups. ppardee

Bye Kimmy!

Still wouldn't watch the Kardashians. Not even with binoculars from my yacht. Maxwyfe

Oh I would watch them. Watch them be jealous of my bigger yacht. MrCrisB

How Much?

I'd probably still depressed. Wealthy, but depressed. LittleRedLamps

Hey, you can't buy happiness. But with enough money, you can rent it indefinitely. PolloMagnifico

I was thinking that too, but honestly, I think most of my depression (and all the anxiety) comes from financial pressure. bl1y

The Dropout. 

I would still have a biology test tomorrow. jonmoon04

Not necessarily. You could drop out. iMADEthisJUST4Dis

Meow....

My cat would still bite me for no reason and stare at me with his judgey eyes. Bruv keeps me grounded. kingschway

Who knows, maybe as millionaire you could fancy cat food and toys and his mood would improve. Just kidding, cats are mean. cbofosho

Video On.

Giphy

The way i spend my day. I'd still play video games all day long but I'd actually have the money to buy them. Reddit

Dynamics. 

My family dynamic would stay the same but I'm hoping we all would be happier without all the stress. ZaMiLoD

I would absolutely hide that from my kids until they are done with college. They'd of course know we weren't poor but they wouldn't know we were millionaires. gheradel

Nerves....

I'll still have anxiety. Frugal_Midwestern

I'd still have anxiety, too.

But I'd get to feed that anxiety by building and living in an underground bomb shelter in the middle of nowhere so I didn't have to worry about natural or manmade disasters. The only thing stopping me from doing that is money and maybe half a thread of sanity. ToBeReadOutLoud

Yummies....

Very little. But I'm certain that even with my new found luxury of being able to afford the best food in the world - a margarita pizza will still be my go-to "happy food." Chromattix

When in doubt.... be a Karen! LOL

We've all seen them and at times we may have been one A KAREN! You know who that is.... a difficult person, that's describing it politely. Karen's make scenes and do all that is necessary to get anything and everything their way. Working in any form of a service job, Karens are your worst nightmare.

Redditor u/externalodyssey wanted to hear from everybody about their Karen encounters by asking.... Managers of Reddit - what is a Karen experience like ? What was you worst experience ?
