'Sold a car at the Portland swap meet many years ago for $14,000. We (three car guys) were staying in a not-so-pleasant party of the beautiful City. I didn't want to leave the loot in the hotel room but we needed to go eat. In case we got mugged on the way, we split up the money and each stuffed one- third into our socks, then inside our boots, to head out to a Chinese Food (dump of a) restaurant.

Thinking cash (large bills) is risk free might be an allusion.
Large cash transactions should be done at the bank and counted/checked first.
Just came from a retail establishment where Security Guard was walking by a Jewerly Store and looked over on the counter and spotted a very well done counterfeit bill. The guy buying the jewelry had a receipt where he got the bills out of an ATM at a gas station. Let me add again it was very, very well done and even had the feel of a real bill. Be really careful taking cash at night.

Sorry if this was mention & Im repeating. Several types of Biz do significant cash trade with customers. Knowing how greed effects many, people in these Biz’s can’t resist the temptation to play fast & loose even though essentially nice people! Used & classic cars is one. The 8 pm thing is something else! Either the guy was too ignorant even if playing fast & loose but not looking to rip u later that night & had no sense of decorum or was thinking the dirty deed.

My opinion is the OP made a point and was asking how others would have reacted. It got off topic but nonetheless in today's world $87G should be handled by a bank. Especially under the conditions presented.

Did I ever tell the story about my grandmother sewing a 20 dollar bill in my moms bra when she went east for college in 39 ?

Coopman, I stopped reading his posts a long time ago. Attempting to sort them in to anything resembling proper sentences, punctuation, etc. so to be understood... well, it simply was not worth the effort.
And someone (private messaged) told me he's an English professor?

Given the age most of us here have attained, it's a wonder that we converse with even a hint of civility toward each other. Good thing we're Ford guys, they say we're more laid back than some other car collectors.

That's kind'a comical, really. These old Fords are only special in our own heads. Actually, we ain't much more than a bunch of old geezers with a bunch of costly, old used cars. Word! DD
