- A man, Andreas Flaten, got a huge pile of coins on his driveway that equalled to the $915 (R13 900) he was expecting as his last salary
- Before the incident, the man had gone to his former boss, Miles Walker, to ask for his last pay-cheque, saying it has been delayed for months
- When contacted, Walker said though he knows the employee has been given his money, he could not recollect if he dumped the coins
A man, Andreas Flaten, living in Georgia, US, got the most surprising moment of his life months after he went to his boss to ask for his last salary.
People reports that Andreas was taken aback when he got the same amount, $915 (R13 900), in pennies that had been stained in oil.
His girlfriend, Olivia Oxley, who made the revelation on her Instagram page, said she believed that his former boss, Mile Walker, did that as a way to spite him. The lady stated that they were at first angry when they saw that their driveway was filled with the oily pennies on their way out.
Olivia, however, said that after taking the coins off the road, they found the whole act very funny, thinking about how the former boss could be so wicked that he would go to such a length to hurt someone.
When the media reached out to Walker, he said could not “remember” if he was the person who dumped the coins but said he knew for sure that the former employee got his last pay.
After calling Andreas an unpublishable name, he criticised journalists for giving the former employee a platform for such an issue. Andreas reported the case to the authorities. It should be noted that on top of the big pile of coins was a note that read: “F— you!”
The couple, after putting the coins together, later set out to clean them so that the man could cash them in.
The man said he hopes his story will achieve the purpose of exposing his wicked employer and serve as a cautionary tale to anyone who may want to treat other people as filth.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported a mother of nine has decided to go back to school. At 62 years of age, most ordinary folks would have completely forgotten about school to focus on ageing gracefully and spending time with their grandchildren.
For Zambian Maureen Ngoma, that has become the start of a new phase for her in education. The mother of nine recently joined the Senga Lumbwe Basic School in Lusaka under adult literacy as a grade 8 pupil.
"I want to work in a big office and give my service to the people when I finish school," she said.
