Oh to live the reality of 'The Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous!' Who hasn't dreamed about all the lavish and fantastical things we'd purchase if money was no object? Oh the places we could escape to. Many a daydream has been spent smiling about all the exotic journeys that could be taken. And we wonder about how drastically our lives would change, hopefully for the better. But even with all that coin, there has to be a thing or two that would remain a life constant. There is always something money can't replace or buy.
Redditor u/Cassius219 wondered how people would behave in life if they hit that lucky jackpot by asking.... If you won the lottery tomorrow, what is one thing that would stay the same about your life?
How much money my family thinks I have. ReshiWaystone
I would lie. I would tell my family that I won like $200K -taxes. That would explain several obvious changes in my life (ex. new car), but not enough for me to give them to do something stupid. Secretly, I would stupid money stashed away. counterslave
Love is Forever....
My partner. JeffersonBoi
However, I know she wants lasik and braces, so she would immediately get those two, so I don't know that my partner would stay "the same" in the strictest of meanings. runasaur
You got skills....
My Reddit usage due to poor social skills. meekmillnumbertwofan
Those are now rich social skills. JJHarp
Won the lottery yesterday. $10. Ka-ching. didn't change my life much. was happy for about a minute. Bought a nice roast beef sandwich. pretty soon things were back to normal. BuppBuppBupp
Arby's? Did you splurge and get the Half Pounder (formerly known as the Roast Beef MAX and the Big Montana)? Mail_Order_Lutefisk
Trade in People...
My dog. Quixotic9000
She literally replied "why would I fix this dog when I could get a new one for less?" I'm still mad. K24Z3
You have to want it....
I don't see winning the lotto helping with the alcoholism. bl1y
You could go to very expensive rehab in Malibu. ScaredLettuce
Tip the Scales....
I'd still be fat. But my wallet would be too, so I have that going for me. GettingTherapy
Unless you really love food then losing weight might be easier after you win the lottery anyway. Can afford better food, no stress from having to work and if you don't work anymore after that then you'd have more time to do more active stuff. I can imagine rich people have an easier time staying in shape because even fitness is kind of a luxury. Chromattix
Every Penny Counts.....
I would remain the motherf***ing penny pincher that I am. sourceofnightmares
Rather than focusing on getting the maximum value for every dollar I spend (which I would still do), my primary focus would be getting my money to generate the maximum amount of income it could generate for every dollar I spend on it.
Being so wealthy that my money makes me richer is the ideal financial scenario in my opinion. AmNotSatan
My Ride or Die!Giphy
My best friend. I know friends are temporary for most but me and this guy have been through thick and thin, depression and relationship problems we're there for each other. We've fought for each other and one time I knew we were going to get our butts beat but I went with him just so he wouldn't get jumped by himself, he's helped me so much through financial situations being that his family is pretty comfortable on wealth and mine is dirt poor. People at this point think we are brothers and I think for the most part we practically are. He just gave me my first car because he bought a new one and just had that one left over. Definitely would cut off a lot of people when I acquire that fuck you type of money but not him. That's my boy. Dizzy_Glizzy
This Ole House.
Small house. I ain't buying a gigantic house because then I'd have to clean the thing, and I'm not spending all day doing that.
Also, cars that barely run. I enjoy fixing them. ThatWun
I'd still eat Kraft Dinner, I'd just eat more of it, and with like really expensive ketchups. ppardee
Still wouldn't watch the Kardashians. Not even with binoculars from my yacht. Maxwyfe
Oh I would watch them. Watch them be jealous of my bigger yacht. MrCrisB
I'd probably still depressed. Wealthy, but depressed. LittleRedLamps
Hey, you can't buy happiness. But with enough money, you can rent it indefinitely. PolloMagnifico
I was thinking that too, but honestly, I think most of my depression (and all the anxiety) comes from financial pressure. bl1y
I would still have a biology test tomorrow. jonmoon04
Not necessarily. You could drop out. iMADEthisJUST4Dis
My cat would still bite me for no reason and stare at me with his judgey eyes. Bruv keeps me grounded. kingschway
Who knows, maybe as millionaire you could fancy cat food and toys and his mood would improve. Just kidding, cats are mean. cbofosho
The way i spend my day. I'd still play video games all day long but I'd actually have the money to buy them. Reddit
My family dynamic would stay the same but I'm hoping we all would be happier without all the stress. ZaMiLoD
I would absolutely hide that from my kids until they are done with college. They'd of course know we weren't poor but they wouldn't know we were millionaires. gheradel
I'll still have anxiety. Frugal_Midwestern
But I'd get to feed that anxiety by building and living in an underground bomb shelter in the middle of nowhere so I didn't have to worry about natural or manmade disasters. The only thing stopping me from doing that is money and maybe half a thread of sanity. ToBeReadOutLoud
Very little. But I'm certain that even with my new found luxury of being able to afford the best food in the world - a margarita pizza will still be my go-to "happy food." Chromattix
