#1 Quit my job

1) Pay off ALL of my bills. 2) Hire some lawyers and file a series of lawsuits against my former employer. By shedding light on the "hidden dirt" more than half of those in management would be fired; including my former Boss. Those managers who were the most incompetent were only in power because some older relative having called in a political favor and got them hired. They had no prior experience, no specialized training, no college degrees; yet started out with paychecks that amounted to more than $80K per year for doing very little work. But when I tried to apply for one of those jobs, I was told that I was "over qualified" and was therefore left in my current position earning a lot less. If anybody deserves to be laid off ... it's them! 3) Hire some screenwriters and bankroll a drama series that is set south of Boston and actually filmed on location within the South Shore. Why should downtown Boston always get all of the recognition and tourist traffic?

I like the ideas! I'd partner up with another multi-millionaire and buy an MLB franchise!
