Pay in buckets. Literally

Comment on this story

A California insurer has paid a $21 000 (R226 000) court settlement in buckets of coins to a man who alleged an employee assaulted him when he tried to buy insurance, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday.

Adriana’s Insurance delivered about 18 buckets of hard cash to the lawyer representing 76-year-old Andres Carrasco, who sued the company in 2012.

His attorney, Antonio Gallo, said the retired bus driver felt “disrespected”.

Carrasco reached a settlement with the company, but the company told Gallo it would not issue a cheque. – Reuters
