Auto worker employee receives 91,500 pennies in final wages - BBC News
I hope the next 50 customers to the repair shop pay them with pennies, the dirtier the better.An auto repair shop in Georgia has been accused of delivering a final wage package to a departing employee by dumping a pile of oil-covered pennies on his driveway - 91,500 of them.
The pennies amounted to the $915 (£667) that Andreas Flaten said he was owed by A OK Walker Autoworks.
Mr Flaten said he faces having to wipe down each coin individually to get rid of the grease the pile was covered in.
A OK Walker Autoworks has not commented publicly on the incident.
But on its website, it says: "And yes we accept pennies as payment! They are cash you nitwits!"
