He just won two years income (after taxes). He can afford some time off.

Maybe it is three years. I figured 40% off his prize for taxes and he might be making $30,000 per year with minimal taxes.

Give the guy a break, his brain is in the right place. He knows he can't blow it all on fun otherwise he'll have to go back to his shiatty life, so instead h e's spending it on going back to college. Whether he succeeds and follows through is a different story, but at least he knows what the right thing to do is.

His only mistake is buying college time for his fianceé as well. TV and Films about university life has taught me that women find someone else in those dens of iniquity.

I'd do the same.  One hundred grand won't buy much, but it will buy a good chunk of education.

Most mollusks don't make nearly what you do.

He'll pay about 20K in Federal taxes. Idaho looks like they have pretty high rates. Call it 7 for state taxes. Working a fast food gig in Idaho, he probably makes less than 15K a year even before taxes (and he won't have made anything so far this year that would make my tax estimates go up), so I figure he's looking at about 5 years of income.

Who makes thirty thousand a year at a fast food place?

Only $15K per year would suck. I hope he's smart enough to get some benefit out of college. They won't have much left by the time they get out.

More like three. You pay taxes on McPaychecks, too, regardless of what Republicans say.

If I had ten grand in FU money I'd call my current boss and tell then they're fired, and change cities. 100grand, even after taxes? That's a LOT of money in the fry jockey payscale.

Depends on the place.... yeah, if it is McDonalds or BK, most who work there probably don't care.    At least IMO, seems like places like Culver's are usually family owned (at least the ones around here) and the employees are in general much more cheerful than other fast food places.  I would guess someone leaving there would do so nicely.

Minimum wage in Idaho is $7.25. That would leave him with about $14,000 a year after taxes.

If they get out of college with little or no debt then they are years ahead of the game.

Of course if you invest that money in high return MBS's you might be able to lose it all before retirement.

5 years income if he's lucky for fast food. Where have you been?  some country that pays a decent minimum wage?

Long ago in 08 when i worked at a pizza place three GM made 50k. The managers made $9. Cooks $7.50. The rest of us made $7.15 or so.

And no way did most of us work 40 hoots a week. More like 15 or 20.

Every time my co-worker goes to Vegas, he has the fantasy that he will be able to call in rich and retire.  Actually, that would be a good ad campaign for Vegas.
 
2013-02-05 10:12:06 PM  
It's cool that he won, but I don't think I'd quit my job, even if it was a basic burger flipper job. Why? Well it really isn't a lot of money, compared to school costs, and it isn't like you can start university right now. So, keep your job, bank the cash, then quit when school starts, or better yet, scale back to part time if feasible. Make it last longer.

I think it is a great idea to use it for university but he's going to wind up with $60-70k or so. Even for one person, that is a stretch for four years of tuition plus living expenses for university. For two, I don't think it'll be enough.

The university I work at, a public state university, is $5,000 per semester for full time, in-state students. So you are looking at $40k for a degree, assuming no increases. Add in books, a place to live, food, etc, and you are gonna need all that money and probably more.

So, maybe instead of quitting the job keep it until you go, and then look at working part time. Makes it a hell of a lot more feasible.

Unfortunately, I think he is more likely to blow through it since he doesn't seem to have the best grasp on money management.

Yeah, the right move would to only buy an education for himself, so he could strengthen his position in the relationship (or dump her when he moves up).

They'd have to be  real frugal to stretch $100k (gross, not net) to cover college educations for 2 people without any other source of income.  And they obviously aren't going to start school next week so why quit work now?  September's a long way off.  Bank another $10k at the McJob.
