LANSING, Mich. – David Sneath has worked at a Ford Motor Co. parts warehouse for 34 years, but it didn’t take him any time at all to walk out once he discovered he had won a $136 million Mega Millions jackpot.
“I yelled to the boss, ‘I’m out of here,'” Sneath said Thursday after going to state lottery headquarters in downtown Lansing to pick up his first $1 million check.
Sneath, of Livonia in suburban Detroit, said the reality of his win has yet to sink in.
“I still haven’t touched base with Earth yet,” he said. When he saw in a newspaper that he had a winning ticket, “my whole body went numb.”
Most excellent…Just exactly the way I would have handled it, Sir. Best wishes for you.
