Man Pays for New Truck in 85,000 One-Yuan Coins

They say you’re supposed to take care of how you spend every penny if you really want to be successful in life, but some people out there take it to the extreme. It’s not the first time this happens, but we’re sure it was quite disturbing for the poor fellows working at the auto dealership who had to count literally every coin.

Remember that guy in Singapore who had one of his employees deliver $19,000 in coins to a car dealership regarding an Aston Martin? The coins, which weighed about 350kg (772lbs) were delivered after having been kept in a container used to store fish. It was clearly an act of revenge.

We probably all have considered doing it at some point in our lives, whether it was because it felt the rightful payback at that time or simply because our evil selfs were temporarily taking over the lead. However, most of us found a way to restrain ourselves and act normal. Well, not this guy.

This time, the trolling went on in Dongguan, Guangdong province, China this past Tuesday, as an allegedly bus company owner entered the dealership holding 85 plastic bags containing 85,000 one-yuan coins to pay for a truck. The bags weighed a whopping 5,000 kilogram (11,000 lbs) in total, money that came from bus tickets fares. It would seem paying for the new truck with the coins seemed much better then making a stop at the bank first to get paper bills.

Now, 85,000 Chinese Yuan are about $13,700 at the current exchange rate so it’s not quite clear what sort of truck you can get in China with that money, but we’re sure that’s the last time the Chinese entrepreneur will get to buy one from that dealership.
