Looks like Mirlande Wilson has a real pickle on her hands. Well a $105 million one…
After we reported last night that Mirlande Wilson was a no show at the Mega Millionaire’s office yesterday to claim her jackpot prize it seems that events have escalated with Wilson now no where to be seen. Apparently her co workers are now suspecting that Wilson has gone into hiding, fearing their reprisal and perhaps trying to hatch a plan to get out of having to pay her fellow co workers what many perceive to be their share of the winnings.
The fracas came to a head yesterday when Mirlande Wilson insisted that she and not her co workers who had been pitching into a collective pool was the sole winners of the unclaimed prize as a result of having pitched into her own private ‘winning’ ticket coincidentally with a dollar bill that she found at her place of work at McDonalds.
Of course this led to assertions that Mirlande Wilson was getting a free look with other player’s tickets and essentially allowing herself the luxury of swapping winning and losing tickets where it best made sense (guess who got the losing tickets?) in the luxury of her house as the numbers were being drawn out.
That said it might be this fear that fellow co workers and for that matter the general public are now openly wondering if Wilson fudged the handling of tickets in order to best facilitate her own needs at the expense of the collective thus warranting her sudden disappearance.
One could probably surmise if Ms Wilson does find the courage to come and collect ‘her’ prize there will be a mob waiting for her and of course a lawsuit courtesy of her ex (let’s face it, whether Ms Wilson won the money or not she is never going to be welcome back at the McDonald’s franchise) co workers.
$7 million or a $105 million worth of looking over your shoulders for the rest of your life? Which one would you take?
