Man pays parking ticket with 5c coins
And, it has to be said, is pretty rude about it.

THIS AUSTRALIAN MAN clearly wasn’t happy about paying a parking fine when he arrived at his local city council office in Adelaide earlier this month.

He was prepared to pay the $60 fine, but only in 5c coins.  That’s 1,200 coins, maths fans.

Needless to say, the clerk was not impressed.

He seems like kind of a jerk, eh?

As it turns out, though, the joke is on him.  According to, Australian law dictates that fines over $5 can not be paid in 5c coins.

Nice try, buddy.
