    Man Sues Home Depot After Using Glue-Covered Toilet

    A shopper at Home Depot claims employees did nothing to help him when he got stuck on a toilet in a store restroom.

    BOULDER, Colo. (Nov. 3) - Home Depot was sued by a shopper who claims he got stuck to a restroom toilet seat because a prankster had smeared it with glue.
    Bob Dougherty, 57, accused employees of ignoring his cries for help for about 15 minutes because they thought he was kidding.
    "They left me there, going through all that stress," Dougherty told The (Boulder) Daily Camera. "They just let me rot."
    The lawsuit, filed Friday, said Dougherty was recovering from heart bypass surgery and thought he was having a heart attack when he got stuck at the Louisville store on the day before Halloween 2003. A store employee who heard him calling for help informed the head clerk by radio, but the head clerk "believed it to be a hoax," the lawsuit said.
    Home Depot spokeswoman Kathryn Gallagher said she could not comment on pending litigation.
    The lawsuit said store officials called for an ambulance after about 15 minutes. Paramedics unbolted the toilet seat, and as they wheeled the "frightened and humiliated" Dougherty out of the store, he passed out.
    The lawsuit said the toilet seat separated from his skin, leaving abrasions.
    "This is not Home Depot's fault," he said. "But I am blaming them for letting me hang in there and just ignoring me."

    This is a reminder why we should always carry a tube of glue solvent. I carry mine IWB at about 8:00 in a kydex open top holster. Folks often chide me that carrying the tube is not necessary and the chances of a 'glue on the seat prank' is just not likely. But then I use the spare tire argument and that shuts them up.

    This is also a good example of condition white. Had he been in condition brown - he would have realized that the toilet seat was not clean.

    This is not Home Depot's fault," he said. "But I am blaming them for letting me hang in there and just ignoring me."
    I can remember when people would never think of suing, for fear of looking foolish.

    This reminds me of the story that happend back in the 80's of the over sized lady that sat down on a freshly painted toilet seat, it took the parameds 20 minutes to stop laughing before they unbolted the toilet seat.

    makes you wonder if he didn't put the glue there himself soe he could sue and pay the bill on his heart bipass surgery he just had. that is a real expensive procedure.

    I work in a hospital and I know what kind of funky diseases are out there. I never sit on a public toilet without a paper 'cowboy hat'.

    Seriously, do you not at least look for urine or other garbage on the seat before squatting. I'm sure I would have found the glue, maybe not recognized it , but would not have sat in it.

    I heard on the radio that he got around $46K in damages.

    I use paper to clean off the seat before I put the gasket on it.
