This is a question The most cash I've ever carried

There's nothing like carrying large amounts of cash to make yourself feel simultaneously like a lottery winner and an obvious target.

A friend went to buy a car for ten grand, panicked and stuffed it down his pants for safety. It was all a bit smelly by the time he got there and he had to search around for some of it...

Tell us the story behind the most cash you've ever carried.

Looking forward to the big pay day
When I was about 15 I was looking for a part-time job. My uncle, kind man that he is, offers me 20 a day to work for two weeks in the half-term, as a general 'carrying stuff' bloke (he's a landscape gardener). I only worked week days, so was expecting 10*20=£200.

It worked out at about £2.50 an hour, and I thought it was great.

Come the last Friday, he told me to go around to his house after work. I drag me aching body to his house, and I bring a football pump to protect myself with (I didn't have a baseball bat, but it was a huge amount of money, and I needed to protect myself).

He gave me four shiny 50p pieces.

Next week, let's have "have you ever beaten a relative over the head with a football pump", as QOTW.
