Ale House accident ruined old man's sex life

From the Daily News:

A Queens retiree is suing a popular Kew Gardens saloon, saying he was injured when he tripped over an unleashed dog.

Irving Grossman, 81, says the managers of Austin Steak and Ale House should have known they created a safety hazard by becoming too "pet-friendly."

Grossman claims the fall caused him "severe pain, shock, mental anguish" and ruined his sex life with his wife, Jaclyn.

He went into Austin's to place a bet at their OTB window and stumbled over a Pomeranian on the way out, busting his left kneecap, he said.

"What can I say? It's the story of my life," Grossman said. "I was in a brace for two months."

I once saw a bumper sticker on a car:

"I'm a Jew and I will sue".

At age 81 what kind of sex life can he have?

If it's "the story of [his] life" then maybe Austin's should sue him for being a liability to pet owners.

He knows exactly where he is going--to court. By the way, he is entitled to money, but not from the bar.

Dogs are required to be on leash at all times and the owner is the one who should be sued.
