A worker who chased up his late paypacket after quitting his job was stunned when he received his final pay in thousands of pennies – along with a rather unfriendly parting note.
Andreas Flaten, 26, who lives in Fayetteville, Georgia US, received approximately 91,500 pennies – which were covered in motor oil – along with a note saying “f*** you”, after leaving his job at a car repair store.
Mr Flaten received the bizarre payout from his former place of work, A OK Walker Autoworks, after he contacted the Department of Labour over his late final payment.
His girlfriend Olivia Oxley said he is “kind of irritated” about the situation, which meant he has had to clean the pennies individually in order to cash them in.
She told the PA news agency: “We went to the end of the driveway and there was that giant pile of pennies, covered in oil, and we had to shovel it out of the driveway.”
