    one of the best b3ta stories:


    * LONG, AMUSING STORY *

    "My dad is a partner in a smallish law firm. He
    loves nothing better than annoying people and
    suppliers who piss him off, nothing bad, just
    minor spats. He loves doing really pointless
    but perfectly legal things. This is my absolute
    favourite petty revenge story of all time.

    Dad has queried an outstanding payment to an
    office supplier, its about 3800. He contested
    it and basically dragged out payment for
    months. Eventually, he agreed that if they sent
    someone round he'd pay them cash.

    In the mean time, he went to the bank and after
    discussion with the bank manager, worked out
    what the legal minimum denomination of notes
    and coins could be used.

    He also went to the garden centre and purchased
    a cheap, yet sturdy black dustbin.

    As it turns out, you can pay in coins. the
    resulting amount pretty much filled the dustbin
    - well 3/4 full. It was almost impossible to
    move. 4 guys from the office got it upstairs
    and hid it in Dad's office. They spent half an
    hour emptying all the coins from their bags.

    The debt collectors arrived. Dad made them wait
    an hour or so for the hell of it. He came out
    and spoke to them argued the toss some more.
    Eventually dad 'caved' and pointed them in the
    direction of the money. Upon seeing it they
    groaned and muttered that there's no way they're
    going to take that. Prepared, Dad immediately
    hands them a piece of paper and says, fine,
    sign this. They ask what it is, "its to confirm
    that I offered you full payment and you refused
    to accept".

    They sigh and give in. Dad asks for a receipt.
    They start counting. Dad has previously removed
    a pound or so earlier on.

    A couple of hours later, they point out that
    its a pound down. Dad denies that's possible,
    maybe they should recount? They relent and fill
    out a receipt. They fill the bin back up and
    start dragging it to the lift. My dad watches
    on.

    The lift arrives and they struggle to get it
    over the floor divider but panting, they
    finally get the thing in the lift. As the doors
    begin to close, my dad sticks his hand between
    the doors, forcing them to open again.

    'Erm lads? Where are you going with my bin?'

    My dads ace really." (IHROOcoke)

    They don't have to accept all the coins by the way.

    The maximum amount beyond which the recipient can refuse to take your money in 1p or 2p coins is 20p; for 10p or 20p coins it is 5 while for 50p, 1 and 2 coins it is 10.

    40.40 really should not have taken long to count out
