魔鬼正在對你召喚! 心碎男的九億人生


愛情算什麼?有錢卡實在!
贏得樂透大獎,可說是人生的萬幸,也可能是終極悲劇。之前我看過一篇報導,這篇報導找到了一些美國過去贏得樂透大獎的得主,後來發現這些人在坐擁財富之後,人生反而急轉直下,有些人在短短數年內散盡所有錢財,有些人因此家破人亡(許多男性得主在嚐到金錢滋味後,幾乎都會跟元配離婚再娶)家庭已經破碎。你可能會問,這麼多錢怎麼可能在短時間內花光?當然可能!因為這些錢不是辛苦賺來的,所以大多樂透得主扣掉了買豪宅跟超級跑車之外,當然就是去投資生意或是創業,鈔票撒出去哪裡會心疼?這年頭燒錢最快的方式,就是投資創業啊。下面這篇新聞,報導一位美國麻州的幸運兒,在被女友甩了之後,買彩券中了美金三千萬,折合台幣差不多九億。之前的情傷,在看到了鈔票之後完全被拋諸腦後。鮮少有人能不在致富後被金錢扭曲。衷心期盼這個年輕的頭彩得主,善用上天給他的財富,不要成為下一個悲劇的統計數字。
 

Heartbroken man wins $30 million prize
心碎男的九億人生!
 
Sandeep Singh's ex-girlfriend may be nursing some regrets後悔不已(nursing都有持續一段時間的意思,I’m still nursing a cold就是我還在持續感冒中) today, after dumping甩掉(用在男女關係中。She dumped me就是她把我甩了的意思) the 22-year-old just days before he won a $30.5 million lottery prize.
Known to his friends as "Sunny", a beaming笑容滿面且容光煥發的 and clearly overwhelmed這當然是指此人因為重了頭彩而顯得有點難以相信 Singh told a Massachusetts Lottery press conference記者會 he'd always believed he would win.
Singh held two jobs in retail零售業(就是商店的店員) and banking to help his mother pay off her mortgage還房貸 - now his first priority首要任務 after winning the prize.
"Just pay my mum's house off and donate some money to the community," he said, when asked for his plans for the money.
Singh revealed the recent break-up分手when asked if there was a lucky lady who would be sharing the proceeds(獎金)收入.
"Just broke up with her so, nice. Thank God," he replied, quickly clarifying, "She broke up with me. I was heartbroken心碎 at first but... yeah, I'm getting over it已經不再傷心了(女友算什麼,現在可是坐擁九億多台幣的富少耶)."
When asked if he thought the girl would come calling, he answered, "doesn't matter. I hope not."
For Singh there are now only two girls close to his heart心裡面最重要的人, and the $30 million prize, his sister, who bought the ticket for him, and his mother, a widow寡婦.
"She's been working hard for 30 years," said Singh of his mother, currently a hotel cook.
Singh's father passed away in his first year of high school, and he started working at MacDonalds at 14 to support his family.
It's safe to say for Sunny, the days of flipping burgers這原本是一個煎漢堡肉片的動作,後來都引申為在速食店打工的意思 and stacking shelves這是商店店員經常會做的動作,就是將商品鋪貨上架 are well and truly over真正的結束了/宣告終結.
