    I would hesitate and ask myself why would a total stranger be handling me such a big amount of money.

    I promised a friend that if we did, we'd go around the world. I could finally pay my mortgage, massive renovations, never work and devote my time to music, gym, cooking, family and friends. No massive expenditures just try and make life for everyone a little stress free.

    Invest much of it, but I'd also donate a portion to charity

    Clear debts, save some, give a bit to charity of choice, and continue to live a normal life.

    the probabilities of dying on my way to the bank with the money are higher than the ones of me being given that amount .

    20% helping various friends get out of financial binds, send my parents on an amazing vacation, split the rest 50/50 with my brother.

    Put it into my savings account and not spend it. Save it for an emergency.

    ESCESV saidI would hesitate and ask myself why would a total stranger be handling me such a big amount of money.

    My sentiments exactly. It probably would not be mine to spend. I get the point of the OP; perhaps establishing ownership would have been best lest everyone act so impulsively or so entitled.
    Come to think of it, valets experience this all the time with expensive cars - lol.
    Ya know, if that man who handed me the cash took off running like a mad man, I'd be wary of someone coming after me - lol.

    Ask for more, start a non-profit, help people in tangible ways.

    - pay off my mortgage
    - put some in savings
    - invest in my business, hire employees, maybe put a down payment on a building if it makes financial sense.

    Not sure if this is how it would work, but this is all theoretical anyway.

    1.I'd pay off my loans, my parent's loans, and my sister's loans.

    2. I'd get tint for my Jetta, refinish the wheels, get it repainted in the factory color, and buy some floormats. I'd then buy a lightly used sports car, likely a Porsche 911.

    3. I'd buy a nice, small house with a 2 car garage and a big yard. I'd buy the necessary grounds-keeping tools as well.

    4. I'd likely have a few hundred thousand left over if I found the right house, so I'd invest some, donate some, and party with some.
