An Indonesian man owed his ex wife a large sum of money in back alimony and he decided to pay it all in coins.
Dwi Susilarto arrived at court on Thursday hauling a dozen sacks filled with 153 million rupiah ($10,500) in small change, a hefty payment that weighed in at about 890 kilograms (1,960 pounds), his lawyer said.
The ex-wife's lawyer refused to count the money, brought in by wheel barrow. This nearly caused a fight to break out between Susilarto and the ex-wife's lawyer.
The man’s low public service salary forced him to reach out to friends after the court in the town of Karanganyar in Central Java ordered him to pay back some nine years’ worth of unpaid alimony, said the lawyer Sutarto, who goes by one name.
"I was honestly surprised too (at the payment), but my client said the money was donated by friends and family who gave most of it to him in coins," his lawyer told AFP on Friday.
"There was no intention to insult anyone -- that’s all he has."
Setyowati, who eventually accepted the funds, wasn’t buying her former husband’s excuse.
"This is insulting -- it’s like calling me poor," she was quoted by local media as saying.
The court ordered its staff to count the money.
A woman from Coral Springs, Florida says she cut herself on a razor blade embedded in the handle of a shopping cart at Walmart. The incident happened Sunday at 3800 block of Turtle Creek Drive.
Faith Ferels stated that she did not notice the razor blade was there when she first grabbed the cart. While in the store and looking for juice, she grabbed the cart's handle and touched the razor blade.
"Then when I saw it, I said, 'This can't be real,'" Ferels said "Why else would there be a blade on a handlebar if not to purposely cause damage to someone (or) something?"
Ferels says she went to customer service where they took a picture of the cart and gave her a bandage.
"They didn't take it serious," Ferels said. "I thought, you know, there's always a cop car outside of there, that they would have called a police officer, security, someone to look and try to find how it happened."
Walmart said it is investigating the incident and is regularly inspecting carts at the location in Coral Springs.
"It's disturbing that someone would purposely try to injure a customer or associate," Casey Staheli, a spokesman for Walmart, said in a statement to local news. "We take this matter seriously."
