Advertisements It's not hard. A business that size might easily take out petty cash in the form of hundreds. For a reasonable sized business, having a petty cash of $1000 or more isn't unusual. Also, fast food joints dealing with hundreds isn't unusual - a meal for 4 can easily be $30-40 and you can expect to see $100 bills. Granted you probably will see twenties, but having several hundred dollar bills at the end of the day wouldn't be too unusual. Maybe a convenience store that mostly deals with $1 items might not get many hundreds, but they certainly would if they sold gas. Heck, even a retail store dealing with payroll often involves paying hundreds of dollars to employees (and yes, a lot of smaller mom and pop businesses will pay you in cash rather than to continually cut cheques). A couple of weeks of full shifts can easily be a few hundred dollars.
