He offered his 2 weeks’ notification, composing a letter of resignation to Mr Walker who apparently assured Mr Flaten’s last $915 cheque would be paid to him in January.
But, come January, the cash never ever got here and Flaten stated his previous manager implicated him of damages.
He even called Georgia’s Department of Labor for help in the matter, without much luck.
Months later on, Mr Flaten and his sweetheart, Olivia Oxley, were leaving his home when he observed something at the end of his driveway: more than 91,000 oil or grease-covered cents and an envelope with his last pay stub that was resolved with a specific message: “F**k you!”

The cents weigh more than 225kg in overall, according to Fox 5 Atlanta, breaking the wheels of Mr Flaten’s wheelbarrow.
Dismayed by the occurrence, Ms Oxley required to social networks with videos of the scene, composing on Facebook that “no one like that deserves to have [a] successful business”.
Mr Flaten called the relocation “childish” and kept in mind that cleaning up the cents was “going to be a lot of work” for cash he had actually currently made.
Now, his nights are invested cleaning up the coins for hours at a time in order to have the ability to cash them in.
Ms Oxley decreased to comment to Fox News on Thursday, discussing that the set would be focusing their energy on finding resources to be able to get a “real payment” for Mr Flaten’s last cheque.
Mr Walker decreased to comment.
Mr Walker spoke to WGCL-TV briefly, mentioning he didn’t understand if he did or didn’t drop the cents off at Mr Flaten’s home.
“I don’t really remember,” Mr Walker informed the TELEVISION station. “It doesn’t matter. He got paid – that’s all that matters.”
Mr Walker went on to call Mr Flaten a “weenie”.
In Australia such a payment would be not be legal.
