    Insurance company pays $21,000 settlement with buckets of loose change
    [​IMG]
    An insurance company begrudgingly paid a $21,000 (£12,000) court settlement by dropping it off in buckets full of loose change.

    Adriana's Insurance Services, based in Rancho Cucamonga, California, settled a dispute with Andres Carrasco in June.

    The 76-year-old Los Angeles claims an Adriana employee assaulted him during an argument over why the company had cancelled his car insurance.

    He was expecting a cheque in the post, but instead received thousands of quarters, nickels and dimes.

    The buckets were dropped off at his lawyer Antonio Gallo’s office this week, a day after Mr Gallo had refused to accept the delivery.

    "There's maybe 17 buckets of coins," the attorney explained.

    "They probably (each) weigh anywhere between 70 to 100 pounds. I'm assuming, because I can't lift them.

    “It's insulting to my client. He's 76 years old; he just had a hernia operation,” he added. "He feels that he wasn't treated as a human being."

    Mr Carrasco said he was “disappointed” about the way he has been treated.

    His lawyer has asked the insurance company to remove the coins and issue a cheque for the full settlement amount.

    Adriana's Insurance Services has not responded to requests for comment

    They will get sued again once he pulls his back lifting a bucket.

    My brother-in-law at my request did this a few months ago. Last year he got some chicken shit hick parking ticket in Hickory NC visiting my nephew Chucky at Lenoire Rhyne. I told him to pay them in change and he dumped $250.00 in change on the clerks desk with the ticket stub and walked out.

    Issue is that you have to wrap them for banks to take them. And if you take them to one of those coin machines, they take a 10% minimum cut. So the old guy is fucked either way… he'll lose 10% at the very least or he'll have to spend weeks wrapping that shit up.

    Ooohh he did! My brother-in-law has alot of Adam Carolla in him, scary sometimes. He certainly made sure Boss Hog and Roscoe P. Coltrane gave him documentation.

    My credit union dumps buckets of change into a big machine and deposits the total into my account. No charge. :yes:
    I might. Just because he is old doesn't mean he isn't an asshole. :dontknow:

    My old man told me long time ago never to fuck around with cops and the IRS. No matter how much you hate either of these, it's wise to pick different battles in life and to bite the tongue and just pay whatever the fuck cops & IRS want.

    He's right, but SOMETIMES you have a lil angle that has no recourse like brother-in-law did. He lives on Long Island and they were North Carolina cops that he'll never see again. And they didn't know who my nephew was or what school he went to.
