A catering driver was so committed to the grind that he won $36.5 million and showed up for work the next Monday at 4:30 a.m.


A resident of Montréal in his 60s recently won a $36.5 million lottery jackpot but has no intentions of retiring. Pierre Richer, a driver and part of the shipping department at a catering company, purchased the winning ticket at a grocery store when he went to buy discounted pie crust using two free tickets he had. Despite the life-changing win, Richer decided to return to work at 4:30 a.m. on the Monday after winning the lottery, even though it coincided with the Canadian Thanksgiving. 

He expressed his dedication to his job, stating that he couldn't leave his colleagues in the lurch, especially the shipping department, as they wouldn't be able to function without him. Richer's wife and daughter were the ones to recognize his win, as he initially reacted calmly to the news. Despite receiving a considerable sum, he mentioned that he still feels the same and that nothing in his life has changed. 

Richer revealed plans to use his winnings to purchase a new house and car and to possibly treat his family to a vacation, explaining that although he doesn't typically go on vacation himself, he's happy for his family to have the opportunity. The grocery store where he bought the ticket will receive a commission of $365,000 for selling the winning ticket.
