    I'm not talking gambling or in the stock market type loosing, I'm talking fall out of your pocket or something like that. I went to gas up my pickup this morning and the guy gassing up his pickup beside me was going through the trash he didn't tell me all the details but he was looking for a cigarette pack and it had a 100 dollar bill in it, and he didn't find it. Thankfully I have never lost a huge amount of money, just a couple of bucks:phew:
  2. Yes a $20 here and there over the years. I found money last month however. I couldn't find my Red Robin card for several months. Reached into a cargo pocket in shorts that haven't been worn since last fall. I wondered what is this wadded up mess? It was a laundered bank envelope with the missing card melted, a shopping list and $100 in washed twenties. Just in time for the gunshow a few days later.Got a few items there and bought lunch for my buddy and myself on the way home. tom.:supergrin:

    Do people still carry much cash these days?

    I was just thinking the same thing... I rarely carry more than $20 in my billfold. In fact the cash that is there right now has probably been since last year.

    Paying everything with credit cards (and paying the balance at the end of each month) helps me keep track of my spending habits.

    The only money I've lost, (other than 1st wife!) was when I was 22 years old.

    I was 'head over heels' with this gal, and we opened a bank account together. (Talking marriage and kids, etc. What a DUMB idea!!)

    Long story short, she took over $2k of my money and then broke up with me, right after she took the $$$.
    Took my diamond ring, too.

    I guess you know how I felt.:steamed:

    I wish people would learn the difference between "loose" and "lose".

    It truly makes me loose (sic) my mind. ;)

    I carry large amounts of cash. One never knows. . . I'm on the young end of "too old to trust credit all the time." LOL

    Funny is I was out with a bunch of people from church a few years back. Collectively, they didn't have $100 between them in cash. I think the "big spender" had $20. Few had enough $ on their CC's to do anything either. Very strange to operate that way to me.

    If I don't have at least $100 in my money clip and the backup money in my wallet, I get seriously edgy.

    You guys know that people that pay cash spend less $ than those who use plastic, right?

    I was in Carmax a month ago selling my truck and a guy walked through the door, asked how long to get his car appraised then left. On his way out he dropped something in the sliding doors so I jumped out and went to see what it was, about $20 in 5's and 10's. Ran after him and caught him just before he got in his car. Money is great...but I don't need bad karma!

    I never lose any of my own money.

    I always have an emergency $100 bill in my wallet. I basically operate as if it doesn't exist, but is there just in case. I'd hate to be out with my boys and get caught in a bad spot with a credit card that doesn't work and my good (ahem) looks.

    I also try to keep somewhere around $100 in smaller bills for random purchases where cards aren't accepted (yes they exist) or are an inconvenience (and yes they also exist).

    I do use my cards 99% of the time, but cash is still king some places.

    A few years ago I was out looking to purchase a full riding leather suit so I brought along 15 crispy Ben Franklins. Well, the suit at the dealership ended up not fitting so I went out for a ride with the boys and forgot to zip up my jacket pocket where my wallet was. Found the wallet the next day but not the Franklins.

    Years ago I had one of those nice money clips that you could run over with a truck. Had on my slacks and that sucker slid out somewhere. Last money clip I ever owned. Yep! It was near $300. GONE!!!

    Now we do Debit/Credit with no Balance on the Credit side. Works out well. Amazing how fast our Credit union is in catching rip offs.

    Since the CU is six hours away we do online banking. Works out well. Plastic has other conveniences and that works out well.

    One thing I like about my job I get paid on a money card, so I rarely keep cash on hand, so I can't loose it:supergrin:

    I do exactly what Kloogee does.

    I can keep my emergency $100 bill in my wallet for 9 months. But, if I ever break it, it will be all gone in a week.

    Yes I certainly have. One time I took $200 out of the ATM and grabbed the receipt but left the money in the dispenser. I was on my cell phone and not paying attention. I realized it once I got where I was going but then it was too late.

    Another time, I lost just under $800. I was at the casino and had just won a bunch of money. I was wasted beyond belief and lost my wallet. I was really pissed because I had 10 free car washes in my wallet at the time :steamed:
