Glued to toilet, man sues Home Depot

Thursday, November 3, 2005

DENVER, Colorado (AP) -- Home Depot is defending a lawsuit filed by a man who claims one of the chain's stores ignored his cries for help after he fell victim to a prank and was glued to a toilet seat.

Bob Dougherty, 57, of nearby Nederland, said he became stuck to a bathroom toilet seat last year after somebody smeared glue on it.

"They left me there, going through all that stress," Dougherty told The Daily Camera, of Boulder. "They just let me rot."

His lawsuit, filed Friday, said Dougherty was recovering from heart bypass surgery at the time and thought he was having a heart attack. A store employee who heard him calling for help informed the head clerk via 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.

According to the lawsuit, store officials called for an ambulance after about 15 minutes. Paramedics unbolted the toilet seat.

Dougherty, "frightened and humiliated," passed out as he was being wheeled out of the store, court papers said.

The lawsuit said the toilet seat separated from his skin, leaving abrasions.

"This is not Home Depot's fault," Dougherty said. "But I am blaming them for letting me hang in there and just ignoring me."

It only takes 15 minutes for a human being to rot in a Home Depot restroom!?

Wow.

I wonder how quickly a person would rot in that Texaco out on the highway...

Beware of the new fur-lined toilet seats that Home Depot is peddling.

so, HE sat on a WET toilet seat and STAYED there?

i mean.. err.. dont ALL people feel freaky when a toilet seat is wet? We usually jump , wpie off our bottoms, or at least check what the hell the wet stuff was.
On top of that, dont most of us notice it wet to begin with and wipe it off?

Top it off with...
he ONLY sat there 15 MINUTES? thats it?
f-n cry baby.
(oh gee.. did i say that outloud? Embarrassed )
these people are WORKING.. and it is obvious they didnt think it a prank. 15 minutes is a reasonable time for someone to respond to the claim " im glued to the shitter" Confused

does ANYONE think that 15 minutes is tooo long?
I mean, I personally would have had a bit of hesitation because that is just the wierdest thing to hear out of the blue in the middle of the day..
15 minutes is time to put down what you are doing, get a manager to accompany you, and find the bathroom... right?

Fifteen minutes of Home Depot Hell.... <snort>

I'd have passed out to from the 'bare-ass-ment."



I feel for the guy, really. I wonder how much he expects to get for not noticing the toilet was wet.

And who the heck would think to put glue so strong down on the toilet seat of a hardware store? A disgruntled employee or a really sick advertising guy?

Sometimes, just finding the restrooms is a bit difficult as well

What the heck is that one symbol - the one that looks like a giant bird biting that guy's hand?

The symbol under the wheelchair symbol.

if the seat was wet... how long did it take for it to dry? he must have been sitting there for awhile. or someone squirted it there seconds before he came...??? puzzling, puzzling, very puzzling. hard to believe he didn't notice anything and actually got glued firmly to the damn nasty seat.
