You!

Standing in checkout line with only a few items and a nice person lets you go to the front of line, you are the millionth customer and win fifty thousand dollars.

Would you speak up and say you are not the true winner or would you say nothing?

    As much as I could use the money, I couldn't be comfortable standing there accepting the prize knowing I only won because of a nice person who let me go first

    I would take my money anyways, though. Their loss. Are they some how entitled to the money they let pass them by? I might give em a little something, though. They did let me go first, after all.

    I think that I would thank them and split the money. I do not have to worry about it, I have no such luck.

    I would speak up and hope to share the prize with the person who allowed me to go first. I certainly wouldn't like myself if I didn't. Keeping quiet about it goes against all I believe to be right.

    Ultimately I was the winner just as much as if I'd got there a few seconds earlier.

    But I would give the person a couple of thousand for letting me go first.

    Random BAD luck - upon which I have come frequently enough - isn't something I slough off on another person.

    Why should unexpected, unsought GOOD luck be handed over to someone else?

    (no) I would be the rightful winner, that's luck/fate for you! (or maybe that person was an angel, LOL) But I sure would thank the person who let me go to the front of the line! Also would line that person's pockets a bit too.

    In all fairness, I would split the money with the person who let me go ahead of them. Better to split the money with them, then have them attack me in the parking lot because I won what was suposed to be theirs.

    Technically, you don't know that the person who let you in was actually the millionth customer or not. Someone else on the line could have let another person in ahead of them, in which case, neither of you would truly be the millionth customer.

    I'll wait till it happens. Then I’ll make the right decision ( I hope ). And that’s going to mean a large donation to a local food bank for the poor.

    I would speak up. Hopefully the person who let me go ahead would be amenable to splitting the prize. If not, that's fine. I couldn't live with myself if I said nothing.

    I would split the money. It's not like I stepped in front of that person they let me in fron and it was all chance. I would give the person that let me in front a portion of the money as a way to say thank you while still keeping some as well.

    Simply because its the LUCK OF THE DRAW.. HOWEVER , I would then offer to split the money with the person behind me..... That much I would do. I am a firm believer in karma... things happen for a reason.

    What if the "nice" person let me go ahead because they thought doing so would make THEM the winning customer? People are nice and devious many times. This could have been a miscalculation on their part. Cha-Ching!

    I'd speak up. The person was nice enough to let me cut in front of them. I should be just as nice and share the winnings 50/50. If not for their good manners, I would not be the winner. Actually, I should share it with the person's parents as well. They are the ones responsible for the good manners (in most instances). Let's say 25k for me, 20k for the nice person and 5k for their parents.
