    "Rian Keogh was paid €355 in five cent coins by Alfie’s Restaurant in Dublin city centre this week, a number of weeks after the student finished working for the establishment.

    Keogh said he was waiting for his final pay before Alfie’s owner Niall McMahon told him it was ready to be collected at the premises on South William Street.

    When he arrived to get the money, the third year UCD student said he was taken aback to find that the money was being paid entirely in five cent coins in a large bucket, amounting to around 7,100 coins. "

    The guy had to take a Luas home with 30 f*ing kilos of coins. No matter what kind of Hugo Boss suit you are wearing that's going to suck
