A US man accused his former employer of being “childish” after he received his final payment in a grand total of 90,000 coins.

According to Sky News, Andreas Flaten, who lives in Georgia, found a wheelbarrow’s worth of coins covered in an oily substance dumped on his driveway.

Flaten said he had left the job in November 2020 and had been facing trouble receiving his final payments, which amounted to $915 (Dh3,360).

His former employers at a car workshop had placed his final payslip on top of the pile, along with an expletive-laden parting message.

He now spends his nights cleaning the coins so he can cash them in and claims it takes him an hour and a half to clean about 100 of them.

Miles Walker, who owns the workshop, said that he didn't know if he had dropped the pennies outside Flaten's house or not.

He said: "I don't really remember. It doesn't matter. He got paid, that's all that matters."
