COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho -- For some execs, a $100,000 windfall might not represent a life change, but after Kyle Messier won that in an Idaho lottery game, he immediately called his boss and quit his job as a burger-flipper at a fast food joint. "I guess you could say I called in rich," reported TV stations KREM in Spokane, Wash.

After taxes, his winnings are $67,500, about six years' salary at his old job, and Messier plans to use the money so that he and his fiancee can go back to school. Messier, who has lived in Post Falls, Idaho, his entire life, says that he'd been saving money to put himself and his fiancee through trade school.

Now, he and his fiancee plan to marry at the end of February, and they will both attend school and learn a trade so that they can get better jobs, Idaho station KIVI-TV reports. "This is a dream come true and couldn't come at a better time," he said.

Messier had planned to work two or three more years to save money for school. Then he bought two $10 tickets Monday afternoon in the Ultimate Bankroll scratch game. He was presented with a check Tuesday. ho-lottery-winner-quits-job/?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl39 %7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D266971
