German shoppers hospitalised after cheese and salami fight

I must admit that I’ve suffered a flash of supermarket rage in the past. But, true to my nature, I've always dealt with it in a cool, calm and collected manner. All it takes is to swish your cape and walk away when you notice a fellow trolley-pusher getting feisty. Take my advice, fellow crime-fighters - don’t rise to it.

In fact, there are a handful of German shoppers who need to follow that very advice.

A fracas started when a 74-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman fought over a shopping trolley outside a supermarket in Aachen. The winner of the trolley was decided when the woman’s brother punched the man and knocked him over.

Unwilling to give in so easily, however, the 74-year-old followed them into the shop, grabbed a salami and confronted the woman’s brother who had punched him. While attacking the man with the salami, the mother of the man and woman stepped in with a chunk of parmesan. Police eventually intervened and had to send two of them to hospital for injuries incurred during the fight.

Violence helps no-one, crime-fighters. And surely a salami and cheese sandwich is far more appealing than fighting with the ingredients?
