    Mega Millions mania has plunged a Maryland McDonald’s into a bubbling cauldron of controversy hotter than a deep-fried apple pie.
    Workers at the fast-food joint who pooled their cash for tickets are furious at a colleague who claims she won with a ticket she bought for herself and has no intention of sharing.
    “We had a group plan, but I went and played by myself. [The ‘winning’ ticket] wasn’t on the group plan,” McDonald’s “winner’’ Mirlande Wilson 37, told The Post yesterday, insisting she alone bought one of the three tickets nationwide that will split a record $656 million payout.


    “I was in the group, but this was separate. The winning ticket was a separate ticket,” the single mother of seven said as she and her fiancé left her home in the squalid Westport neighborhood to attend church.
    The Haitian immigrant refused to show what she said was the winning ticket, claiming she had it hidden in another location and would present it to lottery officials today.
    Pressed as the day went on, she became more cagey.
    “I don’t know if I won. Some of the numbers were familiar. I recognized some of [them],’’ she said. “I don’t know why’’ people are saying differently. “I’m going to go to the lottery office [today]. I bought some tickets separately.”
    With winning tickets also sold in Illinois and Kansas, a single Maryland winner would get an after-tax lump sum of $105 million, or $5.59 million a year for 26 years.
    If Wilson won, and if it was with a pooled work ticket, the situation would be shockingly similar to that of New Jersey lottery louse Americo Lopes, who tried to screw five former colleagues after hitting a $24 million jackpot before a jury ordered him to spread the wealth.
    Wilson’s co-workers — who make little more than $7.50 an hour — are sizzling with anger over the notion.
    “She can’ t do this to us!” said Suleiman Osman Husein, a shift manager and one of 15 members in the pool. “We each paid $5. She took everybody’s money!”
    A man identifying himself as the boyfriend of a McDonald’s manager named Layla, who was part of the pool, said Wilson bought tickets for the group at the 7-Eleven in Milford Mill, where the winning ticket was sold.
    The group’s tickets — along with a list of those who contributed to the pool — were left in an office safe at the burger joint, said the man, who gave only his first name, Allen, as he stood next to Layla. She declined to comment.
    Then, late Friday, before the night’s drawing, the owner of the McDonald’s, Birul Desai, gave Wilson $5 to buy more tickets for the pool on her way home from work, and she went back to the 7-Eleven and bought them, Allen said.
    Wilson took those tickets home with her, Allen said.
    But Wilson insisted yesterday that she had bought the second batch with an unidentified pal — not for the pool — and that the winning ticket was among them.
    A day earlier, a delirious Wilson had called co-workers to break the news — tellingly used the first-person singular.
    “I won! I won!” she cried, Allen said.
    Another colleague, Davon Wilson, no relation, said he was there when Mirlande Wilson called.
    “She said, ‘Turn on the news.’ She said she had won. I thought it was a joke or something. She doesn’t seem like a person who’d do this,” he said.
    Allan said he and Layla went to Wilson’s home and pounded on the door for 20 minutes until she finally came out.
    “These people are going to kill you. It’s not worth your life!” Allen said he told her.
    “All right! All right! I’ll share, but I can’t find the ticket right now,” she finally said, according to Allen.
    Yohannes Michael, a clerk at the 7-Eleven where Wilson bought the tickets, expressed doubts about her story when he said yesterday that lottery officials have reviewed the store’s video and believe that a man bought the winning ticket. Lottery rep Carole Everett would not confirm that.
    Reached at his Fairfax, Va., home, Desai, the McDonald’s owner, declined to comment except to say, “It’s all bulls--t, if you ask me. It’s speculation.”
    Even though she's likely full of shit... What a bitch.

    What the hell is she even going to do with that much money? If I won that much cash I'd end up giving most of it away.

    would get an after-tax lump sum of $105 million, or $5.59 million a year for 26 years.

    Why would anyone go for the 2nd deal .. If u take the $105 million and put it on a bank (which is retarded, u can make way more with such a sum of money) at 2% interest per year, u lose out on almost $30 million after 26 years.

    The second option is for people like me who have no self control. Blow and hookers man, I'd have that 105mill finished in 72 hours.

    Yeah I think the only interest you'd get if you put it on a bank is that of robbers
    Putting it in the bank is a different story
    hohohoho





    Jokes aside, your point is valid

    If the winning ticket really was one she purchased herself I see no problem with it.

    I don't see the hassle. It's a ticket she bought herself, she has absolutely no obligation to share that money with her coworkers.

    Of course, if she turns out to be lying, she can go fuck herself.

    Yeah but you know damn well as I do she didn't buy a ticket herself she's just greedy.

    Everyone becomes greedy and turns on their friends when they win large sums of money.

    And even then the bitch could at least give her coworkers SOMETHING. Jesus. 105 million dollars she could help them out of their horrid jobs at McShits.

    And you came to this conclusion, how?

    Including moochers who beg their friends for something if they win. Goes both way, homes.

    But she doesn't HAVE to if it was a ticket she got herself. Sure, it's a dick move but nowhere does it say 'thou shalt split the winnings'.

    Didn't the exact same thing end up happening in Florida one time?

    Woman agreed to share her winnings and then refused when she won. Even her lawyer while they were on tv said she should just share it.

    Holy shit. If I won that much money I'd probably be jumping around like a fucking retard and then proceed on buying what I've always wanted to buy but can't afford, like cars, travelling etc. You only live once, I say make the best out of it.

    Pretty much why people should do this rather than publicize themselves as winners. Shit tends to go crazy.

    Though the money is better used for charities or investments.

    Her money, her choice. I wouldn't give a single Euro to those trying to mooch off of me.

    As far as I see it, I bought the ticket, I invested 100% in it, I and only I get 100% of the money. If I'd give money away it'd be of my own accord, and surely not to people acting like they are entitled to it just because I suddenly have a tonne of money.

    Exactly. If they don't trust her word now, well though luck think about it before having her buy the tickets.

    good on her i wouldn't share even if it was a group ticket because $105 is a lot more than a whatever split of that - more is better, incase your retards don't do math in school stupid twats.

    You wouldn't share and then you'd get your pants sued off because the tickets were bought with pooled money and you were part of a verbal contract. That said, if she did buy the winning lotto with her own money seperate from the pool money then she would have every right not to share it.

    This is why you make a contract beforehand if you actually expect to win.

    Everyone becomes greedy and turns on their friends when they win large sums of money.
    Everyone becomes freeloaders when you win a large sum of money, it works both ways

    And you came to this conclusion, how?
    Because she looks like a bitch. Look at that picture. "Strong independent black woman who don't need no man" is written all over her face. Translation: Bitch


    Including moochers who beg their friends for something if they win. Goes both way, homes.
    If they all pitched in money for tickets they should all get something if one of their friends win. I wouldn't pull some shit like this. Even if the ticket that won was one I bought myself. I'd feel bad for my friends and give them some money.


    But she doesn't HAVE to if it was a ticket she got herself. Sure, it's a dick move but nowhere does it say 'thou shalt split the winnings'.
    Yup nothing like alienating your friends as soon as you're a class or two above them
    Edited:

    I hate how they publicize the winners, it's as if they want them to be harassed. I didn't see anything about it being optional.
    Yeah no it isn't. By claiming your lottery winnings you agree to forfeit all press rights to the lottery commission or whatever the fuck it's called.

    Which is why if I win the lottery I'm staying in a castle law state and I'm putting up "No Trespassing" signs on my property.

    Go ahead and take a picture, reporters. Just stay off my property. Or you'll get a taste of rock salt buckshot.

    Trust fund for each child. $1,000,000 each, they don't get it until they're 18.

    98,000,000 left to go.

    That's what you'd do and that's fine. But like you're allowed to have that train of thought, she is allowed to have hers. Deal with it.

    Her choices, she'll have to live with the consequences. Though I wouldn't say that either side if the better one in that case.

    I feel kinda sorry for those people though, they probably were jumping for joy when they thought they'd won 10-20 million each then she is like 'I bought this with my own money, you arent getting a penny', I would be furious too.

    It is a bit strange that she was given extra money for the pool the night before and just happened to buy a winning ticket for herself at the same time, despite already having tickets in the pool.

    It's her fucking ticket. She bought it herself.

    Their ticket, which they pooled in the money for, lost. Her ticket, which she bought with her OWN MONEY, won.

    Nothing wrong here.

    A verbal contracts is, legally, not worth the paper it's written on (i.e form a legal standpoint a verbal agreement is utterly worthless)
