Happily Poor

“Lotto lout” Michael Carroll’s reaction to becoming utterly broke will surprise

 

Howard Hughes once said: “Money can’t buy happiness” and then someone else later added: “Somehow it’s more comfortable crying in a Porsche than on a bicycle.”

 

News, therefore, that “Lotto lout” Michael Carroll – a man who blew the £10 million jackpot he won in 2002 on drink and drugs – has “never been happier” since becoming penniless could be perceived as surprising. Most would expect anyone to be mourning the loss of such a fortune, but Carroll told The Sun: “I’m not bitter… Easy come, easy go” and announced: “[Becoming broke] is the best thing that happened.”

 

Now working as a lumberjack and coal deliverer on a £10 per hour wage, ex-binman Carroll’s story is a lesson to us all. Like Victoria Aitken, who once sang: “I’m Vicky from The Yacht, I used to have a lot and now I have a little,” perhaps, after all, it’s better to just be “happily poor.”
