TORONTO -- When Roger Booker realized he was an instant millionaire, he told his wife to call into work to say she won't be returning -- ever. However, he'll stay on the job.

The 41-year-old Pickering man held the third winning ticket in last month's huge $44-million Lotto 6/49 jackpot.

I totally understand wanting to keep working.

Roger has one of those sweet jobs that pays well, with great benefits that is hard to get.

He works for Toronto Hydro.

Perhaps Roger could fight boredom by starting his own business in his area of expertise...I dunno, perhaps eventually employ a few people.

Totally none of my business (obviously), but with that kind of money in the bank (44 frickn' million) maybe Roger could be a mensch, and give that sweet Hydro job to someone who needs it so that their family can live a little better.

Just sayin'.
