Continuing With Our Super Glue Theme

It just seems that some times no good can come from messing with Super Glue

"Man Sues After Using Glue-Covered Toilet"

Thu Nov 3,12:32 PM ET

BOULDER, Colo. - 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." (you have to be real desperate to use a Home Depot restroom)

The lawsuit, filed Friday, said Dougherty was recovering from heart bypass surgery and thought he was having a heart attack (or an ass 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.
(Refusing to comment on "pending litigation" has saved many from having to make up some kind of BS to cover up their or their employees incompetence.)

The lawsuit said store officials called for an ambulance after about 15 minutes. Paramedics unbolted the toilet seat, (well they were at a Home Depot and had plenty of tools on hand) and as they wheeled the "frightened and humiliated" Dougherty out of the store, he passed out. (and hit his head on the toilet)

The lawsuit said the toilet seat separated from his skin, leaving abrasions. (your Honor I present to you and the court Exhibit A)

"This is not Home Depot's fault," (so then why are you suing them? Oh yeah that's right they have mad cash)he said. "But I am blaming them for letting me hang (you weren't really hanging now were you?) in there and just ignoring me."
