Auto shop manager gets his final $915 paycheck in 91,500 oil and grease covered PENNIES dumped at the end of his driveway with a note saying 'f**k you' after he resigned due to 'toxic work environment'

 A Georgia man was shocked to discover his final pay check after quitting his job had been paid in 90,000 pennies.

Andreas Flaten was owed $915 after leaving his job at A OK Walker Autoworks in Peachtree City in November.

He had handed in his two-week notice, flagging a toxic work environment and high staff turnover. 

He claims to have found difficulty in getting his final payment, alleging his former boss accused him of damages, so he turned to the Georgia Department of Labor for help.

Earlier this month, Andreas discovered the pennies, which had been covered in an oil-like substance, at the end of his driveway.

On top of the pile of pennies, he found an envelope with his name on, which contained his final pay stub and explicit parting message: 'f**k you'.

Andreas described the pile of pennies as 'a childish thing to do'.

With the pennies left covered in the slippery substance, Andreas now spends each night cleaning them so that he can cash them in.

He said it takes him roughly an hour and a half to clean off several hundred of the coins.


Andreas said:  'I think that's going to be a lot of work for money I've already worked for. 

'It's definitely not fair at all.' 

The owner of the shop, Miles Walker, spoke with WGCL-TV briefly, stating he didn't know if he did or didn't drop the pennies off at Flaten's house.

'I don't really remember,' Walker told the TV station. 'It doesn't matter he got paid, that's all that matters.'

Flaten's girlfriend, Olivia Oxley, said she hopes her boyfriend's story sheds light on how people 'are treated so poorly by their employers.'

She said the pair have stopped being angry and are looking at the petty act in a positive light.

'With that many pennies, we're bound to find a few treasures. I've already found one from 1937,' Oxley said. 'After the first shovel full, all we could do was laugh because this poor miserable man took so much time to be vindictive and cruel. 

'We absolutely refused to let him ruin a single moment of ours.'
