Do you need money? Maybe you just want more money. Either way, you might consider asking a lottery winner for money. If so, you would probably start asking in different ways depending on whether or not you know the person.
If you know the lottery winner
Let me tell you a true story about two women. These two women were best friends for years. For some reason they drifted apart and didn’t see each other for a few years. Then one of the women won the lottery. It was a huge jackpot of hundreds of millions of dollars. A few years after she won the lottery, she reconnected with her old boyfriend. Within days of reconnecting, one woman told the jackpot winner that she had $50,000 in medical bills that she just couldn’t pay. Read between the lines – She indirectly asked for money.
The jackpot winner was more than happy to pay the medical bills for her boyfriend. She said to give her the bills and she would take care of it. That would have been great, except there were actually no medical bills. It was just an excuse for a reason to ask for money. The lottery winner didn’t like that. If the friend had simply asked for the money directly, she probably would have given it to her. But her boyfriend lied and insulted her intelligence.
What is the moral of this story? If you have a friend who won the lottery, don’t make up a false story to try and get some money. Rather ask your friend directly to give you some. They could just do it.
If you don’t know the lottery winner
If you’re planning on asking a lottery winner you’ve never met for money, you need to know ahead of time that the odds are against you. Many lottery winners, especially new ones who win huge jackpots, are inundated with requests for money. Often those requests come through sob stories that tug at the person’s emotions. You should know that these new lottery winners quickly become immune to these requests and reject them.
So if you plan on asking a stranger for money, don’t make up sad stories. Just like in the previous example, tell the truth and just say you would appreciate it if they could spare some money. They will most likely decline your request, but don’t take it the wrong way – Jackpot winners cannot give money to anyone who asks. Just make sure you don’t harass anyone while asking them for money – that’s illegal.
