A woman was slapped with a court order to pay her ex-husband $50.12 as part of a divorce settlement.
So, she decided to pony up the money in pennies delivered in Tupperware filled with rice and beans.
To add insult to injury, the unnamed woman also wrote her husband a farewell note.
It read, ‘Andy, Here's forty seven dollars and twelve cents in pennies. The other three dollars paid for the containers that I used. Receipt is included if you want to return them…'
She then added, ‘Oh! one last thing, I added beans and rice to remind you that you married a beaner : ) I hope you have a fab life! B/C I know mines 20x better without you in it!’
Photos of the coins divided into three plastic containers were posted Tuesday by the husband, identified only as Andy from Omaha, Nebraska.
The ex-husband clarified that the ‘beaner’ reference – a racial slur used to describe people of Mexican heritage – comes from his wife’s tendency to call herself that in a show of ‘pride.’
He explained, ‘She thought every single person looked at her negatively because she was Hispanic.’
