A Christchurch man’s first act as a millionaire was to call his boss and quit his job after winning $14.3 million.
The man bought the winning lottery ticket at Countdown Ashburton. The Lotto store person told him that he had won $14,000 and he excitedly called his girlfriend to break the news, but the storeman then apologized and said that he had made a mistake…the prize was in fact $14.3 million.
The man called his boss to let him know that he quit and told the New Zealand Herald that he will find other ways to fill his time instead of working. He plans to start volunteer work and buy houses for his children as we all build a workshop.
