Off Her TrolleyIf there’s one thing we can say for Americans it’s they sure do know how to sue. A 78 year old shopper has sued a supermarket chain after she was left to push the bung trolley. You know, that annoying one with the dodgy wheel?

Alice Mae Suits was pushing her cart along when all of a sudden the wheels locked and it “sheared off the front of her shins.” She suffered facial lacerations, leg lacerations and leg hematomas. Presumably she was traveling around 60 miles an hour at the time. She has now been awarded $258 000 in damages.

“Well she’s 78. So she probably won’t even have time to spend it,” said the store manager, “now that’s justice.”
