I used to be a bookkeeper, so I used to make daily deposits that would be an assortment of checks and cash, maybe most in bills I ever carried in a given day would have been maybe over 10 thousand. On rarer occasions I've handled checks in amounts of hundreds of thousands quite a few times as well.

How did you have 6500 at 16?

Last I checked this wasn't a "How did you make your money while underage?" thread.

To justify why I would run around with 6500 cash, I was still an adolescent and it didn't occur to me that I could be 6500 dollars poorer in the blink of an eye.

#34 Posted by Fightingfan (38011 posts) -
hundred thousand dollars.
#35 Posted by -Tish- (3621 posts) -

I honestly feel scared. I had to take 100k from Naples Florida to Hialeah Florida and I was constantly like "OMG I'm not stopping anywhere".
#39 Posted by redstorm72 (4631 posts) -

$2400. I bought my first car in cash.

#40 Posted by theone86 (20555 posts) -

I had somewhere between $100 and $200 on me for a while. I didn't feel uncomfortable carrying all that, though, because I kept most of it in a hidden pocket in my wallet.

#41 Posted by IdioticIcarus (2167 posts) -

Probably like $170 when I was buying a guitar from someone. I usually only carry around $40 in cash at the most.

#42 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

#43 Posted by PernicioEnigma (5426 posts) -

#45 Posted by jeremiah06 (7169 posts) -
$650 for my ps3... Was waiting on the bank to send me a new card... I never usually carry more than $25 cash on me...
#46 Posted by MrPraline (21331 posts) -
Few hundred I guess, nothing much. Use the cards for mostly everything.
#47 Posted by bloodling (5822 posts) -

Use checks, people.

#48 Posted by jun_aka_pekto (17342 posts) -

Not much unless I'm traveling abroad. I usually have a decoy wallet in my back pocket with maybe $50 and a cancelled credit card. I keep most of my ID cards, credit cards and cash in an ID holder and secured in a leg pocket. A couple grand in cash is usually enough to last a while.

#49 Posted by flipin_jackass (9729 posts) -
About $8,000 was probably the most. We had a small business a few years back, and I had to deposit every week. For personal cash, I don't carry that much unless I absolutely have to. In high school I carried about $400 because I was going to open a bank account after school. I lost my wallet that day! Fortunately, someone returned it to the principle's office, all the cash in tact.

lol if someone dude actually rob you wouldn't they just take your wallet? I don't think a secret pocket in a wallet would be that useful surly?
