Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned – especially when she is armed with loose change and a few plastic containers.
When faced with a court order to pay her former husband $50.12 (R501.40) as part of a divorce settlement, the aggrieved spouse ponied up the money in pennies delivered in Tupperware filled with rice and beans.
To add insult to injury, the unnamed woman wrote her husband a stinging farewell note.
“Andy, here’s forty-seven dollars and twelve cents in pennies,” the missive read. “The other three dollars paid for the containers that I used. Receipt is included if you want to return them
“Oh! one last thing, I added beans and rice to remind you that you married a beaner.”
Photos of the coins divided into three plastic containers were posted on Reddit last week by the husband, identified only as Andy from Omaha, Nebraska.
The ex-husband clarified that the “beaner” reference – a racially charged slur used to describe people of Mexican heritage – came from his wife’s tendency to call herself that in a show of “pride”.
“She thought every single person looked at her negatively because she was Hispanic,” he said.
The story has stirred interest among the users of the popular site, with many people siding with Andy and condemning her stunt. – Daily Mail
