We’ve all joked with our coworkers about what we’d do if we suddenly hit it big. McDonald’s employee, Amy Simpson, took the words right out of everyone’s mouth when she told her boss where to go after winning more money than she’d make during a decade of full time work with McDonald’s in just twenty minutes on a gaming website. She was ready to quit, ready to retire after simply signing up for an ad she saw online.
Her job at the McDonald’s in Brampton was the most recent in a line of short-term employment stints for Simpson. Previously, she had worked at a FreshCo grocery store and at a few other low paying jobs with little prospects of upward mobility. However, two weeks ago, Simpson got her ticket to the top income tax bracket. She signed up through an online advertisement.
Simpson was shocked and couldn’t believe her winnings at first. She assumed that her coworkers had somehow set up an elaborate April Fool’s Day gag. “It wasn’t until I hit the cash out button,” Simpson said, “and saw the $1,875,000 numbers next to my name that I knew it was real.” Simpson didn’t wait to give her employer the standard two week notice.
Simpson had to help Her family because of their financial situation and that’s why she started working at McDonalds. Simpson’s lucky streak began during her lunch break. While surfing the web on her phone, she saw the advertisement for a gaming site offering 80 free spins and a chance to become an instant millionaire. Not one to turn down anything free Simpson did not hesitate to give it a shot. Now Simpson does not have to work a day in her life.
