Now, what do you do?

Me so hungry from r/WatchPeopleDieInside


One answer at Reddit is, "Go to the counter and give them the handle and then order, 'I believe this is yours.'"

Me So Hangry maybe.

Sorry, mistook that for the Me So Horny video.

Sue, of course.

What Jupiter said. That's a seriously dangerous door. The patron could have gotten badly hurt.

"Me so hungry"

Um, isn't that title a little un-PC if that's a restaurant with an Asian menu or clientele as it appears from the video?

As it happens I've visualized this scenario and the correct response is to bust out singing (hauntingly):

"Down Under"

Travelling in a fried-out Kombi
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said:

"Do you come from a land down under
Where women glow and men plunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder
You better run, you better take cover."

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscle
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich

Sue, for A LOT

I saw a guy do the same thing, a long time ago. But in that case, the door didn't have a big dot, or a colored bar---as this one does---to alert people that they were approaching a glass door.

Over time it became standard practice to break up the glass transparency with such design elements.

Yeah, the guy will sue IF he suffered injury, and yeah, the store will settle if he does.

But really: is it the store's fault that the guy ran through a door that is essentially no different than tens of thousands elsewhere that are navigated w/o a problem?

Not fake, people react.
The door looks to swing outward. It is swung outward as he smashes into it, pushing it in. His fault. But the door probably had a crack or something.
What to do next? Blame Trump.

Mister Too-in-a-Hurry owes that restaurant a new door.

I can see why people think it’s fake—we’ve all pushed against hinges that are supposed to be pulled. An outside door should be strong enough to take it. The act is totally common, only the result is crazy. Ken B might be right that it had a crack.

Just how many people go to a restaurant wearing a safety helmet? He also looks like he has on protective clothes. Fake news. We've been warned about this.

was the door on store property? If so, YES it's the stores fault
I'm not saying this as a Trout Bum, standing in a stream; i'm saying this as someone that worked for an insurance company for more than 30 years.
Doesn't matter who's fault it was; it happened on store property. Case in point, tens of thousands of people make it across Hi-Vee parking lots in the winter without slipping and breaking their hips; if an old person slips and falls and breaks their hip, will Hy-Vee's insurance pay? Legally I can NOT say, so i won't.

qualifier: I'm assuming that this took place, here in the states; i have no idea if the concept of insurance exists outside.

tim maguire said...

gilbar, you're right. It's the store's fault. People sometimes push when they should pull. All of us do it once in a while. If the door is not strong enough to stand such a common mistake, then the door is unsafe--and that is the store's responsibility.

I'm going to have to call Fake. Even with a crack, the glass would not shatter like that. The guy holding on to the handle for a comically long time is suspect, too.

Faulty door construction. The metal hinges have a small surface area and are clamped to or drilled into the glass. Fine when the door swings out. When the door is stationary, the hinges are braced against the door frame, but the door frame does not actually touch or brace the glass itself to keep it from swinging inward. When the door is pushed in, the hinges stay in place, so that the glass is torqued and the small surface area where hinge meets glass is under too much pressure -- snapped the glass against the hinges first, and then shattered throughout like safety glass.

Anyway, this looks like a Pink Panther moment to me.
