Man Pays Parking Fines in Coins


"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" -- Mario Savio.

Lucky for those Aussies, a 5 cent coin is the smallest denomination in that country. Imagine if they still had the penny like we do! Hahaha!

I'd ALMOST understand if it were high taxes or something, but a parking ticket is usually you're own dumb fault. I hope he took it to court before acting like this-- I can't stand people who don't follow parking rules (maybe I watch too much Parking Wars), anti-establishment or not...

If I worked in a place like that-- I'd act completely calm, smile and say 'Thank you. Please have a seat right over there and we'll give you a receipt once we count it' so he has to suffer for a few hours and/or not get the satisfaction of being a retard on camera....

There's better ways of 'sticking it to the man' than accosting the low pay grade employees such as ourselves. The CEO doesn't care if the peons have to count change.

Unfortunately, we here in Australia are limited by how much we can pay in coins. I know! Ridiculous isn't it?! So this man was trying to make a statement but the lady was legally right to refuse him. Legally he would not be able to pay more than $20 in 5 cent coins. He apparently left the coins behind but the govt dept are still stating he has to come in and pay the fine 'properly'. Who knows what happened to the coins.

You would think that if it was valid currency they would have to do their job and take the payment.
