Reed and Pacman Jones were planning on hitting the strip joints?

operating expenditures, like paying consultants, companies who produce mailing materials and renting mailing lists


How do you define spending as "on a cause or candidate"?  I presume those mailing materials and lists were so they could mail out spam in favor of their preferred candidates and causes?  Is TFA expecting them to just act as a middle man to give money straight to candidates (so the candidates can spend it on consultants, mailing materials, and mailing lists)?

crap.  wrong thread.  $50k won't buy you a lot of consultants, mailing materials, or mailing lists.

That's why I never keep $50k in cash in my car.  I keep $50k in faberge eggs instead.

It's in case the car breaks down and he has to pick up a new one in a hurry.

Idk what his salary was last year, but he's made several million in his career. So 50 grand to him is like a few hundred bucks to a normal person.

None of you ever have a couple hundred bucks on you? You sound poor.

Dumb analogy. Very few things require you to have $50k in cash on your person day-to-day. It's not like he can't go to one of several thousand ATMs around the city if he really needed the cash.

When I sold my condo in 2007, my lawyer cut me a cheque for $120,000 when the sale was finalized.

I treated that cheque like it was the original of the Treaty of Versailles.  I laid it carefully on the passenger side of my car, and drove sweating straight to the bank to deposit it.  I was the most Defensive Driver In History on that car ride.  I cannot fathom leaving $50k in cash in my car unattended.

/I sound poor, I know.

I think worst case he would just write you a new check, but I would've done same thing

Considering that I seldom even carry $5 cash because I almost never use it, carrying around $50k isn't something I could ever imagine myself doing. Other than farmers markets and fairs, when else do you even use cash anymore besides strip clubs?

I wonder if Colorado will sell drugs at their farmers markets. Who is planning a vacation to Washington or Colorado in the next year?

Can you really pull $50k out of an ATM? I assumed there was a limit of $1k or $5k, but maybe I'm just sounding poor.

Most ATMs limit each withdrawal to $500, mainly for cash availability reasons

As a person who works as a tow truck driver, and frequently tows away illegally parked cars, I'm not surprised at all.

You would not believe the litany of things that people think nothing of leaving on the top of their car's front seats, in plain view, from wallets to purses to laptops to cellphones to bags of weed to, on one occasion, a pair of handguns and 3 boxes of ammunition.

The looks on their faces must be priceless when they come back and find the car AND everything in it, gone.

One of my customers paid me in cash once, $22,500. I put in inside a bank bag and but the bank bag in a paper grocery bag and finally put the paper bag in a beat up cardboard box before putting that in the car. My business was not in the best part of town and I was soaking wet with sweat by the time I made it to the bank.

My debit card restricts to 600 per day for reasons of not having all my money stolen if my card is stolen.  You can opt out of that if you want.  At least at my bank.
