Someone gives you $10 million, no strings attached, would you resign from your job? i think i would not--just yet. i would probably ask--beg--for a long vacation but i will not resign. aside from the fact that i like what i'm doing, i do not want to live a luxurious life. because i'm afraid that my $10M would be gone too soon! LOL! i'll probably just buy everything i NEED, after my long vacation of course, and then go on living as before--with a happy thought that i have several more millions left in my bank account! What about you?

i'm a sophomore.if i got the money i won't worry about my future that much. now i'm worried how i can get a job after i graduate from the university and whether i can make a living on my own.i have to achieve these as there's no one i can turn to. if i got the money, i'll still study hard,after graduation i'll spend time on things i am interested in.but also i 'll work for some time every a few years,otherwise i think i would feel blank. if one's life is full of entertaiment without something challenging and meaningful,he won't be really happy

hi, lyx4920. it seems to me that even if you are you, you know your priorities in life. as long as you are determined to work hard in your studies, do not worry too much about the future. with your fortitude, you do not need $10 million to succeed. of course, it can make life more comfortable, eh? LOL! take care and see ya around!

I would quit my job if someone would like to give me $10 million.I first would travel Egpyt then shopping what I need.Also I would buy many gifts to my beautiful daughter. Later I would find new jobs that I really like to do. Maybe I would open a shop to sell flowers. Haha,just dream!

Saviour-V teleports in.... 10 million USD? Maybe, although I'd prefer 50 million USD. Of course, even if I decide to quit my job and rely on that money, I'd have to be careful not to over-use it. I think I could stay frugal a bit. Although I might buy myself a new laptop, a PSP, a cheap but comfortable house, and get married for once. And use some of those funds to generate more of them, and work on a few technologies here and there. Yes, I could do wonders with that sort of money. But right now, I'm going to have to earn every last cent of that sum, bit by excruciating bit. Excuse me while I do that. Saviour-V grins, and teleports out...

Well if someone gives me $10 million dollar which I hope really happens (ha!ha!ha!) of course I'd be quitting my job! Why would I stay here when I could very well be the Boss of my own company. If I have that much I will establish my own business so I could employ people. That way I can help people who needs employment. I want to share my blessings to others and creating jobs for them would be a very good way to do it. I need not stay in my present job. I would rather be more profitable and helpful to me and to others if I could put up a business of my own and employ as many people as I can.

hi, salonga. i think that's one of the better ways of helping those in need. giving them jobs, that is. the benefits would be long-term. you can help them help themselves. that is a great thought. don't you just wish we have that money now? :-) have a nice day!

I think with the way the world is going today with money, gas and all. I think I would travel to different countries find a nice little house in each country and buy it for a very low price. And, then I think I would buy a safe for each house and hide a little money in it to survive. Then, I would buy a nice size boat that could travel the world. Nothing fancy, just able to travel to these countries when needed. That way no matter who kills who first in the final days. I can move to a safer place. Other then that I can always get a submarine for the family to live in. Ha ha But, yes, i think I would quit my job. Maybe I would like to work with you! You like yours. ha ha

I would simply buy the company i am working for. Then i wont have to ask for vacation . I will be the boss and i wont come to office even for a month if i want. What do you say Rainegurl? Isn't it a nice idea?

If someone gave me $10 million the first thing that I should do is to thank him or her. Get to the bank and withdraw the amount and transfer it to my savings account. I will also open several accounts so that the money will be disseminated to several banking institutions. After which I will buy a house and lot, a car and all that I need in my brand new house. I will not resign in my work I will just file a month leave to look for investment companies where i will put my money. Once the investment are doing good thats the time I will resign. Probably that will happen after around 3 months so that my employer will not ask me where did i get the money ( LOL!) He might asked me to invest in his business eh! ( lol)

i'd be out of there so fast,they'd only see a blur. i'd much rather have some kind of business for myself,instead of making peanuts for somebody else.and with that kind of money,i could.

Nope, with my spending habits 10 million would noly last about 40 years i would keep working and have more left over for the rest of my life.

actually i would spend about $300,000 each year if i had that much money, not having that much keeps my budget low.

To be honest, I would quit my job. $10 mil is enough for me living in luxury until the end of my life. Unless someone would like to work the money for me, I would ust live from the bank interests of the money I received. Since I am not a party lover or someone who lives in a luxurious way of living, I believe I could just use the money without being confused about tomorrow

If I was given $10 million, I'd buy me a nice big piece of land up in Michigan right by the water and move my Mom and brothers up there with me. I'd spend the rest of my life enjoying every day and not have a care in the world. [b]~~IN SEARCH OF PEACE WITHIN~~ **AGAINST THE STORMS, I WILL STAND STRONG** [/b]

of course I will quit. I would pay off my all my debts. I would also sign up for course in pottery which is my dream hobby. Quitting my job will give me time to attend to this course. Then I would contribute a portion to the orphanges. And take my family for vacation.

HA! No I wouldn't quit my job because I don't have a job currently, lol. My boyfriend would quit his though. Then we'd pay off all of our bills. We'd give a million to each of our mothers. We'd go on a honeymoon after our upcoming wedding. Then in January I'd go to dog training school. Once I graduated I'd pay off my loan in full. Then I'd use some of that money to start up the doggy biz that I'm dying to get to work on!! We'd buy that $4 million dollar house in downtown Savannah Ga, right on river street & live happily ever after with lots of cats, snakes, dogs & various other creatures!!

I wouldn't quit my job and I wouldn't want my husband to give up his business. We both happen to love what we do. We would just pay everything off, help our parents and save the rest to live off of. I certainly wouldn't quit our jobs though.

hell yeah! i would certainly quit my job. why would you sacrifice yourself in a corporate world, where you can have your own business if you have that kind of money? for me, i would make my own business, but before that, i would take a vacation, and just buy things i want and just relaxin' and chillin' out with friends and after that, that's the time i will start my own business...

Absolutely nothing stressful, full of fun and enjoyement, maybe I'd use the 10 million to buy myself my own Internet Provider company

My answer is a big YES. hehehe.. To tell you the truth, i'm just waiting my contract to end and I'm happy to go. I really am not into my job and i'm having trouble sometimes dealing with especially when im about to get out from bed and force myself to wake up and do my freakin' job. being in a company like i have is desiring but the thing is, the task that was given to me is a mistake. it's not in line with what i like and what i can show. period. so if i'm going to have that million dollar right now? few minutes from now, i'm printing my resignation letter effective tommorow. hehehe..
