At work we have a little lottery running each week. No, it’s not about who will come up with another shite idea for the department it’s actually aÃ‚Â real money lottery based on the national lottery where the winner can gain the princely sum of a couple of tens of quid, or if it’s a rollover, 2 or 3 times that amount. It doesn’t make much of a dent in the budget especially as the winner is expetced to buy the rest of the shift cakes, donuts or chocolates out of the winnings.
Occasionally, we’ll do the Euromillions & spend the day before fantasising about all turning up for work on Monday, marching into the superintedents office & telling him to shove his job up his arse before dumping the uniforms on his desk & rushing down to the nearest Aston Martin garage.
So there is a great deal of envy about a group of Hungarian police officers who won their national lottery this week. The group of 15 officersÃ‚Â from the town of Budaors scooped around Ã‚Â£10,000,000 between them & promptly resigned on the spot. The prize was the 6th largest lottery prize in Hungarian history.
Understandibly, this has caused some consternation among local police chiefs who are drafting in officers from other areas until new ones can be recruited & trained.
Jealous? You bet – good on them!
