Rather than get upset about his $350 electric bill, John Almany found a unique way to pay it — in pennies.
Almany said he and his brother Gary came up with the idea in January. After finding enough banks to supply the pennies, Almany delivered more than
29,000 to Bristol Virginia Utilities.
"I thought I'd make light of the situation," Almany said. "Everybody gets mad, but there's nothing anyone can do about it."
Good for this guy! The last time I checked, pennies are still currency and a great way to protest or make a statement! Heck, I think we should all pay
our income tax in pennies!
Respect the penny!
