    83-year old Evelyn Paswall is suing Apple after walking into the glass doors at the Apple Store Manhassett on Long Island reports CBS New York. She is asking for $75,000 in medical expenses plus punitive damages for negligence totaling $1 million.
    The Manhassett Apple Store has floor-to-ceiling glass walls at the front and rear of the store, with doors in the middle at both ends. It's a similar design to the Scottsdale Quarter and Lincoln Park stores.

    Last year, Apple had white stickers installed on the transparent glass of all Apple Stores to help prevent such collisions from occurring. However, the plaintiff's lawyer says that any markings that were on the glass are insufficient, saying his "client is an octogenarian. She sees well, but she did not see any glass."

    If you walk into a door and blame the owner of the store, you need to be euthanized.

    She probably thought her reflection was another old lady moving towards her so she tried to attack her.

    For an 83 year old, she must be in very good shape if she was able to walk into the door fast enough to break her nose. I applaud her good health. *golf clap*

    Um.. There's markers.. Apple's technically not reliable for the damages if their store is ADA compliant...

    she must have been on the run to break her nose. Odd seeing as how most 83-year-olds use canes to walk, or are terribly slow (no offense of course).

    I mean the plan was all wrong. She should have walked up to the building, crash, and stumble back a few steps and repeat for a couple of times. That way she could testify that she is forgetful and she got injured in the head {and wherever else}. The ball would be in her court as it is a believable story.

    And these old quacks tell us, the young generation, that we are the worst generation yet. Pssh, good one granny.

    Absolutely. Consider it delayed Natural Selection; it's really a wonder she was able to survive 83 years with such little sense.
