I've been lucky myself so far.
But there are lots of stories (legend or not, who knows?), people stating damages of the displays due to very minor bumps.
There's a substrate layer below the (glas) surface of the display.
Obviously, minor tension can be enough to stress that substrate.
And then the display can take harm.
I never put anything on top of my readers. I never transport them without protecting the display. Better safe than sorry...
