Penny Dreadful: Georgia Man Receives Final Paycheck In All Coins

A Georgia man said he was having trouble getting his former boss to hand over his final $915 paycheck from the job he left in November.

Well, Andreas Flaten finally got his payment earlier this month: 90,000 pennies covered in oil at the end of his driveway.

On top of the pile of pennies was an envelope with Flaten’s final paystub and an explicit parting message.
Now his nightly routine consists of cleaning the pennies so he can cash them in.

Flaten called the incident “childish” and said “it’s not fair” he has to work for the money he already worked for.
Have you ever been through a rotten ending to a job – what happened?
