We all want money..right? we are happy every time we have big bucks in our hands..but some are just happy and contented if they have money to buy some food to eat..or to have money to buy at least the things they need in their everyday lives. How about you are you wanting for more money than you have? What is the biggest amount of money you ever had in your hand?

The biggest amount of money I have had in my hands at one time would have to be $200 that was last summer after my babysitting job. But right now this summer I need to find a real job so I can move out on my own.

Yeah, I'm wanting more money...but that's just because I want to help out my family, financially speaking. The biggest amount of money that I have? Its probably 9k -thats in pesos lol- I got it from my salary...which was really higher than my basic rate because of all the over times and working on holidays thingy.

I used to work in a bank, so large sums were common. I routinely handled $50,000 in cash at a time. The most I ever held in my hands at once was a bundle that came off an armored car. There was about $220,000 in it.

Of course, I really want to have more money if possible 2 million Philippine pesos (or $45,000- $50,000) in cash.. I just really need money right now because of financial problem in my family.. We need to pay our debts... But of course that is impossible to get right now.. I need to strive hard to earn that kind of money... The biggest amount of money that I had ever hold was about 10,000 pesos (or $200-$250).. I had receive this kind of money when I graduated from college.. My grandmother and my aunt's gave me money as a start of new life... But then I just flew it away, I bought so many things like clothes and foods, and spend for fun..

I don't know if this would seem fortunate or the other way around. About more than six years ago, I received more than eighty thousand pesos as my separation pay from the company I've worked with for more than five years. I was out of work for six months because I was hoping to be employed in the local government. But I was forced to find work with another private company because my funds were already dwindling then. I went home in the province with my parents and stayed there while I applied to government jobs. The money I got was used to purchase call and text cards (Smart & Globe) which I sold at an income. This was the main thing which preoccupied me. Another bigger portion of the money was used to purchase several pigs which were tended by my fiancee. These were sold later but we only got a minimal income out of this. But when I received the money from the company, I thought of buying a vehicle which we will then use to transport products; kind of buy-and-sell business. Anyway, I'm in my early 30s now and I'm expecting to receive another separation pay until the end of this year because the company I'm working with is experiencing a financial crisis at the present.

Oh really after all the efforts still you've got minimum income for that? I'm sorry to hear that..i'm expecting that if you enter in a piggery business you will get a good income but it's seems different in your case..Well what's the reason why you never got job in a local government? Good luck to you.. thanx for sharing Good day!
