When she walked into work Sunday to find her co-workers celebrating over a shared lottery win, Jennifer Maldonado assumed it was a prank.
Sadly for the new administrative assistant (but thrilling for her 12 peers!), it wasn’t.
She was the only employee at the real estate agency who didn’t pay $20 two weeks earlier for the pooled lottery tickets, leaving her out of the $1 million win — about $83,000 per person before taxes.
In an act of camaraderie, the 12 winners have decided to include Maldonado in on the winnings.
What would you do? If you won the lottery as part of an office pool, would you share with co-workers who didn’t buy in?
