He wasted his Lottery money

Philippines
October 24, 2017 5:14am CST
I found this another story from a regular guy who used to be a fisherman but took side jobs at the construction. He start having small time gambling and started winning small amounts of money. Finally after a couple of weeks he won big time amount of 24000$ or 1.2 million Pesos. At first He made wise decisions about savings for his kid and a construction firm? But all wasted because of his vices and gambling problems. It didn't take long before he lost it all and causes him troubling depression. Looks like it's another dumb guy who wasted another pot luck. If only he chose to sit down and thought about it. In my opinion, he should focus more of this money on his family more instead of friends and vices.
“Pera na naging bato pa.” This is the perfect saying that describes the unfortunate situation of a farmer from Samar who won the lottery but ends up with nothing in a span of 3 months. Jack Morales

He doesn't deserve to be rich. He's doomed to be poor forever. It's not his luck.

Hello @dodoazo That is a little bit harsh. The only difference between this guy is that he didn't have education compare to the one in your post.

@Letranknight2015 He has no sound of mind. It would be a better fortune for him for he's already working.

Yeah I think I watched the segment too by Jessico Soho if I'm not mistaken. There are so many people who really just went One Day Millionaire.

Hello @ilocosboy It was their choice to be one day millionaire, they never experience having that kind of money. Life was so hard for them and didn't really have plan on how to save money.

no one really expected for them to win, so when it happen its just all the happenings, the spending and the luxury they never had before. They don't know about financial management to work with their money.

I feel sorry for him, he didn't think of a good thing about his winning money. And how I wish I was the one who wins that so that I can have my Kidney Transplant.

Hello @JustBhem Keep praying, maybe I might you in my prayers. If there's on such person that deserves to win the lottery, it should be you.

Hello @ridingbet I think it took weeks before he ran out of money. If only he had some one helping him on how to finance his money, none of this could happened.

@Letranknight2015 yes, and maybe he thought his money won't run dry that was why spent much without saving.

He is doing the one thing he wants to do. He might have made the wrong choices but he made them for himself.

The story is always like that. Poor man won lottery, money gone in less than a month. Probably he's confused on what to do with such a huge amount. Or neighbors were convincing him to spent it on vices and drinking.

Hello @rachz_kisses I guess he was stupid enough to tell his friends that they ended up asking him to hang out do vices and gambling.

Many people are unable to cope with large sums of money however they come into it. It is sad for this young man.

Hello @JudyEv My imagination alone can't even cope with it, but maybe it takes maturity to handle such amount.

@Letranknight2015 I would say he has a sickness and thought he could make more and more money but lost it all. That is very sad.

What an idiot! But he isn't the first and won't be the last to behave like that.

They said gambling is like a devil, it haunts the victims, possesses their hearts & souls and won't be happy until it drags them all down to hell.
