Bank workers in Kunming spent eight hours counting 5,000 yuan in one jiao (0.1 yuan) coins thanks to a Chinese man who paid an assault fine with some serious spite.
The argument turned physical, with Wu suffering a brain contusion and her husband leaving with three broken ribs.
A court awarded Wu damages. After paying her the bulk of the 68,000 yuan ($US11,000) fine, the noodle restaurant owner gave the remaining 10,000 yuan ($US1,600) in eight large bags of coins.
Wu deposited half of the change, which took 18 peeved bank workers all day. Though, this means that Wu is still chilling with a few hundred bucks of Chinese dimes.
