Think mine is about £200 but I can't really remember tbh
picking up change for a bar i worked in for tramlines weekend in sheffield
Most has been around £500 probably.
I'm sure I've paid a deposit for rent or something in cash before which would have been more than that. Dunno.
Was pretty nervous about getting mugged so stuffed it into empty VHS cases and carried them in a crappy looking bag. Hiding in plain sight ftw tbf...
in an envelope. Carried from one bank across the road to another. Because they refused to do a bank transfer but letting me walk out with it all in an envelope was ok. Fucking idiots.
transferring savings from one bank to another on opposite sides of town.
They were clearly so annoyed about me transferring to another bank that they were hoping I got mugged of my savings.
they said that they'd arranged that you could cash your pay cheques at the bank across the road, which I now realise was for the use of people without bank accounts, but I assumed you had to cash your cheques there so used to get my £200 or whatever out of that bank and carry it up the road to my bank and pay it in.
Actually just remembered that wasn't the most, another time I worked at a motorway services and I'd given my account number wrong so my pay wasn't going in, it took ages to fix because they couldn't work out what the problem was, so eventually they said they would pay me cash and gave me £700 in notes or so. Managed to wangle an hour off and got a lift of my mum into town and back to pay it in so I didn't have to cycle with it from the middle of nowhere at night.
when I was redoing my house. Paid the builders in cash. Felt very nervous walking around with it.
I did actually throw £2000 of it in the air when I got home. Well, you would, wouldn't you.
Had to do £14,000 a few months ago.
When we did our old place I had to carry £22,000 through Wood Green.
me & two others with Uni May Ball takings going to the bank to deposit
if you'd told us, we could have mugged you (gently) and then shared the spoils later
Felt like how Don corleone must have felt
I got into a routine for a few months of drawing out the maximum cash withdrawal I could on my credit card at the cashpoint outside my bank, then going into the bank and paying it into my current account so my mortgage payment wouldn't bounce. I think it was £500 each time. That turned out to be an unsustainable way of life.
I did once pay a restaurant bill of about a grand in cash. It was a works Christmas do for about 30 people.
£4,100 wandering around when I had to put the money into a bank and get my brother out of a scrape in Thailand.
it got handed in
cause I were paying a fine
Or an out of court settlement with Alan, your text buddy?
thats a part of my police caution.
I'm pretty glad I told the mrs about it cause the cunts have scheduled it for valentine's day.
Gotta love the pigs
I think you'll find she's got plans on Valnetine's Day. Whay...
spunk on the walls or something - the bastards
2 months' rent and deposit for my current room (don't have a UK bank account and they wouldn't let me pay by card...).
But I worked in a bookshop for several years and would have to take cash to the bank, or be responsible for lots of cash if we were doing stands at fairs or something for example. Don't know how much that would be, but quite a lot I think.
bank was gonna charge me to move it over to another bank so i just withdrew it in cash and walked it over there myself
When I collected money for the temporary Hampton Court Flower show car park on the day of the 7/7 bombings. Drove off to get some lunch and the nearly gave the supervisor a heart attack cos he thought id done a runner...
At least you didnt take the tube
None, I'd imagine.
I'd completely forgotten it was in my pocket, then had a total panic when I realised it was there. Then I was like 'YEAH!' and spent it all.
It was a fun day, ended up with lots of shiny things.
