Some thing’s are worth fighting for! The thickness of a slice of ham is not one of them!

Four people in Italy were hospitalised after a dispute over the thickness of a supermarket’s ham slices turned violent, according to the ANSA news agency.

It all kicked off when a 50-year-old woman shopping in the Tuscany town of Livorno in central Italy protested that the ham slices being cut by a counter assistant were too thick.

The scuffle unfolded with the shop assistant’s father as well as the woman’s husband and two sons.

Police were called and three ambulances were also sent to the scene.

The shop assistant, the disgruntled ham shopper and her husband all suffered bruises and were treated in hospital.

The shopkeeper's father was also hospitalised after feeling ill, the news agency said.
