I think I would have carried on for a bit if suddenly richer. Take time to assess wha to d. Then, sure as little eggs, would come the day when some obnoxious director would detail me to do something in that condescending manner they have. I would obtain tremendous pleasure in loudly telling him to 'fcuk orf'
I think at this moment, if I won big on the lottery and had enough money to not work again if I was sensible with the cash, I'd still join the Army. You might call me mad, but to be honest, it'd never be about the money for me. I'm earning more money now than I will for a good few years in the Army (I think I'd have to be at least LCpl, dunno how long that'll take me) But I'd go mad unless I was doing something with my life, and if I was jobless I'd need a HUGE amount to keep myself entertained. But if I was a millionaire as a Pvt in the Army, you'd bet I'd keep it quiet!
