16. The Well “Traveled” Man
Getting turned down by anyone can be a hard pill to swallow. You try to get lucky by picking up people in a bar, but sometimes you strike out. Could you imagine getting lucky every time you tried to pick up someone? In reality, most people are lying about getting that lucky, but that apparently wasn’t the case for this next lawsuit.
In 2007, Rolf Eden was a 77-year-old strip club owner from Germany. He claimed to have slept with over 3,000 women. When he attempted to sleep with 19-year-old Katharina Weiss, she turned him down. Eden thought that the reasonable thing to do was to sue her for ageism. He later dropped the lawsuit, but admitted that he felt wounded after being turned down. He claimed it was the first time it ever happened. There is no indication whether it was his advanced age or the number of sex partners that was her deciding factor.
