83-Year-Old Woman Sues Apple After Walking Into Apple Store’s Glass Front

So, an 80-year-old lady walks into an Apple Store. Ouch! Sadly, however, this is no joke. CBS New York reports (via MacRumors) that 83-year-old Evelyn Paswall is actually suing Apple for $1 million after walking into the glass doors at the Manhassett Apple Store on Long Island.

Yup. That’s right! Just like a crow in one of those Windex commercials, the glass was just too clear. One thing lead to another, and now someone’s grandmother has a broken nose. The lawsuit seeks $75,000 in medical expenses, with the remainder consisting of punitive damages for “negligence”.

The Apple Store in question, pictured above (credit: makiwi on Flickr), has a front that is made entirely of glass from floor to ceiling, with Paswell’s lawsuit claiming that  “the defendant was negligent … in allowing a clear, see-through glass wall and/or door to exist without proper warning.”

Of course, Evelyn Paswall wasn’t negligent at all. Because it’s not at all obvious that the front of a store was covered in something. And it’s not like the glass is actually invisible – the above image clearly shows that the glass has visible seams, and as MacRumors points out, Apple currently places white painted rectangles on each glass pane so people can see the glass.

Clearly it’s Apple’s fault for not painting their glass bright orange. Maybe Apple should stop using Windex? Seriously though, you can’t make this stuff up…
