It seemed like the revenge move dreams are made of: Bloke wronged by dodgy boss destroys all of the work he had yet to be paid for.

Except - surprise, surprise - there's a plot twist! He had been paid! He just hadn't checked his bank account yet!

In case you're not entirely across the full story, a man by the name of "John" made headlines earlier this week after he drove a mini digger through the door of a new hotel in the UK.

As his former colleagues filmed, John smashed through the foyer and tore into the brand new fixtures and fittings, all the while shouting: "If you'd just paid me my f*cking £600 [AUD $1100]".

But some of the stunned co-workers have since claimed that, actually, he had been paid - he just hadn't looked at his bank account.

"The money was supposed to go into his bank on Friday," one told The Sun. "But there was some kind of glitch and it didn't go in until Monday.

"He didn't check his bank account and didn't realise he'd actually been paid. That's why he went mental and wrecked the place."

A ceiling fixer by the name of Samuel White said on Monday that they were "gobsmacked" by the incident.

"We'd put the last tile in, cleaned up and made sure everything was perfect," he said. "Then some idiot in a mini differ decided to drive through the middle of the building," he explained.

"There were loads of workers outside all gobsmacked, jaws to the floor wondering what's going on. The site manager was running around like a headless chicken, he wasn't happy at all."

According to local cops, the man did a runner after his tantrum but was later located and is being interviewed by Merseyside police.
