If you're good with money, that 70k is much more valuable to you at a younger age.
Fo sure he will miss it , and im sure he regrets not cashing out. However, 70k is hardly life changing money, made even less significant by his age. How mant times you see people on game shows like millionaire or deal/no deal that could walk with 70-100k only to leave with much less? If they do walk, you say they should have gone for it.
The guy apparently earns $13 bucks an hour, gets unreal luck up to $70K, and amount that would change most people who earn $13 an hours' lives and then goes loses it all. It is hard to believe that he wont miss that $70K at some future point, money which he was certain to lose.
He is certainly free to do what he wants with his money but I think he has been very foolish.
pretty much. 70K IS life changing for somebody who's willing to change their lives instead of buying a bunch of crap they don't need (cars, jewelry, cloths, etc.)
many could begin the journey towards their dreams with 70k. He's an f'ing moron and it saddens me that he's only cashing out 8k. Disregard for money really gets to me.
