Man glued to toilet seat, sues store


Recommended Posts

A Colorado man who had a panic attack when he found he was glued to a toilet seat in a Home Depot restroom has sued the home improvement giant for negligence, saying staff ignored his plight.

Retired electrical engineer Bob Dougherty, 57, said on Thursday he was stuck in the stall with his pants down for about 20 minutes and that two years after the 2003 incident he was suffering from post-traumatic stress, which has triggered diabetes and heart complications.

"I have these nightmares every night where I am locked in this dark room, with no windows, no doors, no fresh air, no route for escape. I wake up in these cold sweats," Dougherty said.

Spokesmen for Home Depot Inc. could not immediately be reached for comment.

Dougherty said in a lawsuit filed last week in Boulder, Colorado, that he thought he was having a heart attack when he realized his buttocks and legs were stuck to the toilet seat in the Home Depot restroom in Louisville, Colorado.

He explained his plight to an employee who came into the restroom but other Home Depot staffers thought it was a hoax and he had to wait until someone else came in to again summon help.

Dougherty is claiming unspecified damages for help with medical and psychiatric bills, for humiliation and for the diabetes he said he has developed as a result of the stress.

"Home Depot not only ignored my plight, they refused my plight," he said. Dougherty said he suspected the glue had been placed there as a prank by three teens seen earlier in the store.

1. This guy must have a huge ass

2. He flash the toilet bowl while sitting on it

The ass struck Theory:

His big ass covered the entired bowl no air can come thru therefore

when he flushes it. Vacuum is created.

on another note: I really hope this all gets thrown out. I don't like seeing big business screw people, but the other way around is just as wrong. Like him blaming diabetes and those dreams on his ass being super glued to a toilet seat is such shit. Did this guy not ever get picked on in school?

who sits down in the john and doesn't notice the sticky glue-like stuff on the seat? thats the first thing I check out before I take a dump, then check the tp.
