Chinese man pays fine in coins

Bank employees work all day to count 10,000 yuan in coins - NetEase

18 Bank employees work all day to count 10,000 yuan ($1,600) from eight large bags of coins – NetEase

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.

Last year, a woman with the surname Wu was eating at a noodle shop where she and her husband reportedly got into an altercation with the owner (from the Shanghaiist via NetEase).

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 $11,000 fine, the noodle restaurant owner gave the remaining 10,000 yuan $1,600 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.
