"McCarthy dislocated her jaw, broke her nose, tore a rotator cuff and sustained soft tissue injuries to her neck and back, in addition to emotional trauma"

...what? Did the glass panel beat her afterwards?

pheed: I worked at an Apple Store for 7 years. The entire front of our store was glass and someone would run into it at least once a week. Usually little kids. They would bounce off and cry, but they were always just fine. Occasionally though you'd get an idiot, real life troll who'd loudly start wondering "Who's gonna pay for my toof?!"



CSB:
When I was in Japan, the (ex) wife's family took me to this huge indoor waterpark. Large pools, slides, wave pools, diving tanks, all that cool stuff. They had this really cool clear acrylic pool bridge that spanned between two elevated pools. You could walk under the bridge and see people swimming above you, or swim (or walk across...maybe 3 feet deep) and see people under you. We had been there all of 5 minutes. The first thing I did was swim across. I passed over some Japanese lettering went to look down for a closer view, and *BLAM* face first into the bottom of the glass. (which was truely invisible being underwater). Something didn't feel right in my mouth and I realised I broke off 1/3 of my front tooth. As I stood up, the (ex)wife says "I need to tell you that sign says 'no underwater swimming here' because you can't see the bottom " Oh? Okay, good to know. "What happened to your tooth?" Uh...someone kicked me in the face.

SearchN: Last time I walked into a glass door/wall it was after talking to a pretty little thing. My head was thinking to much, my brain not enough.

No it just called her stupid and laughed at her, hence the emotional trauma.

cardex: I have seen 6 or 7 adults walk into glass objects of one kind or another and they have all been girls has anyone ever seen a guy walk into a wall is it just bad luck or is it related to the female inability to park inside the lines.


I've only ever seen women walk into glass.

But I have seen a TON of men try to walk through screen doors. I mean, a ton. WTF? I wonder if there is some sort of brain difference:

Women: "I can see through it!" *BANG!*

Men: "I can hear/smell through it!" *RIP*

Of course, alcohol makes both scenarios far more likely. That and stupidity.

crazydave023: Didn't Matthew Perry do that in "A Whole Nine Yards"?


That's the first thing I thought of. I was going to find a pic of that but I was too lazy to GIS it. So here's a pic from the same movie.

The restaurant should put up a sign that says "If you are a stupid farking moron, this is called 'glass.' You cannot walk through it."

How the shiat can you sustain all those injuries from walking into a window? I tore my rotator cuff once too but I had to get hit by a car to do it.

/also, she sounds fat

Answered your own question, darling.



Well she must have been rolling towards that window like the boulder chasing Indiana Jones.

I just don't understand this.  I've walked into a floor to ceiling plate glass window in public before, and it hurt like hell, and all I thought was "boy am I an idiot".

LoneVVolf: ...Appleby said Tuesday. "Essentially there should been some kind of markings on it - a decal, a bar across - something to indicate this was not open space."...

Restaurant should put a large vinyl cutout of the dumb twat's face on the window, with a sign under it stating "don't walk your dumb ass into the window and sue us like this idiot".

Win-Win.



I'd take her face-print and make that into a decal. Something like this:

So there would be the constant reminder of her failure.

/GIS for window face-print

This may be CSB, but it's sort of relevant:
One of the Marines we had on board was known as Lance Corporal Accident Prone. He managed to knock himself senseless in the hangar bay while doing PT - ran right into a wing. He also frequently forgot the "duck" part of the "jump and duck" one must do when running through the passageways. Occasionally he simply forgot to jump. There's a timing that one learns and it becomes automatic. For him, it never did.
The funniest moment I got to personally witness. The Marines were doing their drill on the mess deck... which was freshly waxed, with the tape still up. This Marine had chosen that side to lead his guys into the mess. He broke through the tape and started to slip, which he tried to counter by running backwards in place. The whole time, he's still sliding. Finally he goes down, but he kept sliding, right into the middle of the floor. That's when it got hilarious - he tried to counter his complete lack of traction by flailing his limbs wildly. Eventually, someone tossed him a rope and dragged him off the floor.
The point is, there are people who somehow manage to be alive despite their brain obviously trying to kill them.

you people are HARSH.

Even the ones who have done it are still saying its her fault despite the window not being visible.

Was it that first pilot in Independence Day's fault that he ran into the force field of the alien ship?  No, of course not, he didnt see it, it was invisible.

How are you supposed to avoid something you don't know is there?  Like I said before, there is next to zero chance this is the first person to walk into that wall.  The restaurant knew it had a something that had the potential to cause injury, and it chose to leave it unmarked, presumably for the entertainment value.

ALL of you have seen stories like this before.  At some point you have to stop blaming the victim.

/ no, I have never walked into a glass wall... I am MALE for god sake, im not that stupid.

That must have been a real pane in the glass!


Also, people who live in glass houses shouldn't walk through doorways.

Me.  Godiva Chocolates.  Freehold Raceway Mall.

/I could have SWORN that was open air
//Please, God--tell me nobody saw....oh, fark.


Exactly.  My first thought was to look around and see and if anyone was looking, but of course the window was in a steel frame and made a noise that the whole mall heard.  I did get a kick about an hour later when we walked by the store and there was a perfect faceprint on the glass.

You know what might be a pretty good indicator that something wasn't open space? A door attached to it.
