After negotiating the price of the car and agreeing on the purchase around five in the afternoon, the subject proceeded to make his payment, but did not take a card from his wallet or a pen to sign a check, instead presented in the store more than a dozen sacks of flour filled with coins of different denominations to cover the amount of the car.

The store employees set out to arrange the coins in smaller bags to count them separately and, after more than three hours of arduous counting, perform a sum that would reveal whether the amount handed over by the man was enough to pay off the car.
