Welsh Man Wins Lottery, Keeps Job at McDonald's

At a McDonald's restaurant in Wales, a young burger flipper quit his job after winning $2.5 million in the lottery.

The 25-year-old married his girlfriend in a lavish wedding ceremony and bought an expensive home. But he missed his friends at work and, a year-and-a-half later, went back to flipping burgers for $10 an hour.

His wife supports his decision. She doesn't have to worry about income — her husband makes more on the interest from his lottery winnings each week than he does serving Big Macs.
