Burger Boy Makes It Big

At a McDonald's store in Cardiff Luke Pittard has won crew member of the month 18 times in a row. Pittard, 25, won £1.3million on the National Lottery 18 months ago.

He celebrated in the usual way, buying a new home getting some lipo suction a few sheep and splashing out on a lavish wedding to his girlfriend Emma Cox, 29 a fellow worker and holiday in the Canary Islands.

Then he realised that he missed his job, the smell of the grease, clearing tables after customers have eaten like pigs, the unblocking of toilets and working with lazy idiot teenagers.

He asked for his job back flipping burgers for £5.85 an hour .

He loved working at McDonald's before becoming a millionaire and had made a lot of good friends and now after his win he has made more and is now considered management material.

McDonald's manager Katherine Jones said: "Luke was always a great member of our team and when he won the lottery we were all so pleased for him, its nice that good things happen to ugly people it shows you we are all loved equally by god."

Oh Yes!!! I am a barmaid, and If I won Tattslotto I would CERTAINLY go back to serving drunk, rude, arrogant wankers for the sheer JOY of it all. I LOVE cleaning up vomit and getting called all sorts of sexist names and having people assume I am easy because I work behind a bar.

What a tosser.....

Good for him. One of my husband's co-workers won a 5 million dollar jackpot a couple months ago. He quit that very day, but his wife continues to work at Citibank. When we call her we have to answer a bunch of trivia questions first so they can make sure we really know her and aren't just weirdos who are after her money.

huh. does that make me a slacker for saying i would quit on the spot? maybe it's the meat. i have heard that being a carnivore is addictive.

I've made millions during my career but I love it too much to give it up.

But honestly, MCDONALDS? Does the boy have no taste? Or taste buds for that matter.

I can understand getting bored and wanting to go back to work...

...Wait, no I can't. Scratch that.

Yeah, if I won the lotto I'd quit my job, too. Oh wait...scratch that. I'd have to GET a job first. Dammit.
