Second ... $26K isn't life altering money. It's a nice little windfall, but you would still have to get up and go to work the next day.

True, but someone like me, that's a year's salary right there. I could pay off my house, get a better car, fix the wife's van, put it away for one of the kids' education. Yeah, that would be life-changing in some way.

Darn tootin’ — for me that’s 3 years of income. Seriously life-altering money. Yet there are (financially) fortunate people who’d turn up their noses at it.

If you could do all that with 26K either you owe virtually nothing on your house or you don’t owe very much and your car is in worse shape than mine.
