Food fights aren't that unusual. According to the Associated Press, a Lee Thoss and a William Hocker got into a fight over Lee's picking through the lettuce at a salad bar. A full fledged food fight resulted. There was name calling, pushing and shoving; punching and someone even got bit! Was this at a high school or college? No, it happened at a Florida retirement home, and an upscale one at that. Lee Thoss is 62 and William Hocker is 85. No criminal changes were filed, but Lee Thoss was asked to leave. This story shows that immaturity can happen at any age.
