Another one of those, “this can’t possibly be a real story” stories.

Man Sues After Using Glue-Covered Toilet

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.

And as if you didn’t need one more detail about this unfortunate moment in Bob’s life, the lawsuit said the toilet seat separated from his skin, leaving abrasions. Ouch.

When you think about it, the story has a happy ending. If Bob didn’t get separated from that seat, his office might have looked like this.
