If you have ever held something and thought, "if I drop this I will need to take out a loan to pay for it", then you can totally relate to these people. Try not to cringe as these folks tell us the most expensive things they could have paid for if they messed things up.
Terrazor asks: What is the most expensive thing you have ever held in your hands?
Used to work at a bank as a teller. Once held a 3 million dollar check. Written out to himself from his business account within our bank, so I could verify he had the available funds.
Kind of surreal. At the time I distinctly remember thinking "This is worth like 50 years of work for me." Just crazy.
