Woman glued to toilet seat at Home Depot
Commerce News Daily ^ | 12/4/2013

Posted on 12/07/2013 3:10:22 AM PST by markomalley

A woman found herself in a sticky situation after going to the restroom at The Home Depot store at Banks Crossing last week.

Someone had apparently put glue on all of the toilet seats in the women’s restroom and she didn’t realize it until she became stuck on the seat. Emergency medical services personnel were called to the store to help remove the woman from the toilet seat, according to an incident report filed at the Banks County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman had to be taken to a Gainesville hospital for treatment.

The manger of the store found a brown paper sack in the restroom that contained a bottle of Loctite GO2 glue.

The manager also noted that all of the toilet seats had a glue-like substance on them. Three toilet seats were damaged with a total value of $60.

I read the story at the URL and it was pretty much a rote recital of events. The one comment below it didn’t make any sense to me.

I wonder if there is something more to this story.

The commenter is really hoping the victim sews the store. The commenter is also certain the store cares about customers more than they do employees. Even though the customer is lying.

The commenter seems to have issues.

There is certainly the possibility the woman did this to herself. If I had done this, I certainly wouldn’t have left the bag behind where it could be checked for fingerprints.

A: how does one not check the seat first in a public restroom and B: how does one,if the didn’t check, not jump right up upon feeling something wet or sticky on ones bottom?
She had to have done it herself.

Wouldn’t the glue dry after only a few seconds? If she didn’t do it herself, it would have to be the person immediately before her.

I take it you’ve never had a restroom “emergency”. Not commenting on plausibility either way.

Some people are amazingly disgusting and don’t seem to care. In highschool I had a job at a small chain dept store. The bathrooms were nasty and the womens was always worse.

In one case it appears someone had exploded with feces on the wall, floor, and ceiling of the stall. Women were still using it.

Most of the women I know grab a bit of TP and make a quick swipe of the seat before settling down. Looks like that may be a wise practice to continue. Gentlemen, take note.

Probably another one of those liberals trying to get sympathy and donations. She’ll probably claim she was gay and that some Home Depot employee did it to her because he knew she was gay.

Seems to me like it’s an automatic disability claim. My guess is she’ll have a daytime TV disability lawyer backed up by one of his doctors to say that she now suffers from irreparable nerve damage and it is painful to sit down.

That’s good for probably $2500/month, for sure.

Gee, I wonder if this woman put the glue on the seat herself? Just like the last time this happened a couple of years ago.

Yeah Loctite superglue. I have some. Sets up pretty fast. Theres no way a woman would sit on something wet and not get up immediately. I call BS on the story. The glue would have setup on each toilet within seconds. Anyone doing it as a prank would have to be lightening fast and doit justas someone came walking dwn the hall to the restroom and left passing thewoan. I call extreme BS and probably soeone trying to get a Home Depot lawsuit payday. That’s if the story is even true.

No. Instant glue only polymerizes when it's deprived of oxygen

You haven’t seen anything until you work in a plant with 200-300 women using those rest rooms. PIGS!!! Not to mention what they did with their tampon injectors., Our plant maintenance people had to completely remove the piping and lift stations to clean out and/or redo the plumbing systems. Double PIGS!!!!!

When there aren't toilet seat covers, I just lay down a layer of toilet paper on the seat. Particularly in the era of HIV.

Seat covers. Exactly. If I have to sit down, I use those (which most restrooms now provide in each stall) or I use toilet paper to cover the seat. If the seat has anything on it, forget it.

This is definitely a sticky situation!

I always use seat protectors or lay toilet paper on the seat before sitting down.

One reason we vacation with an RV is to avoid using public restrooms which are filthy in most areas of the US and particularly in the south. In contrast we find the public restrooms in Canada very clean.

Mama says, never ever ever ever ever sit on a public restroom toilet seat. EVER.

Then, not only that but here’s mama’s ritual: after you go into said nasty toilet and have emerged for your hand washing, grab a paper towel and store it under your arm. Then, turn on the water, get the soap and wash your hands thoroughly up to elbows. But afterwards, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. Grab the stored paper towel, dry your hands, turn off the water with the paper towel, walk to the door and then proceed to use same paper towel to open the door with (knob or handle) then, hold the door open with your foot and try your best to make the shot to the waste basket. Simple as that, you’re clean enough to do surgery. Oh, and one more thing, never ever ever use the hand dryer. Mama says that only stirs up the nasty germs in the room!!! Ha ha

She should have picked the stall with the seat up.

BTW wouldn’t the glue have dried pretty much before she sat down???

EXACTLY! What person doesn't take the time to consider hygiene if they are compelled to use a public toilet?

Who doesn't go through a checking/cleaning ritual prior to sitting down?

This story stinks... ; )

Does no one actually check for both cleanliness and TP before they enter a public rest room any more? Glue of that type would have gone through one of those paper covers. I smell a rat in this story.

bingo! Super glue drys extremely fast. Gorilla glue gets puffy, and does not dry fast, it is quite visable.

"Who doesn't go through a checking/cleaning ritual prior to sitting down?"

Indeed. Laying down a toilet paper barrier not only ensures a prophylactic layer, but it also allows you to confirm there's ample toilet paper for mission success. Few things worse than sitting down on a public toilet seat, tending to nature's call, then realizing there's an empty roll on the dispenser.

This one happen every now and then. It is usually a scam by someone who wants to sue. Home Depot seems to be a big target in the US.

“In November 2005, Bob Dougherty instigated a lawsuit against a Home Depot in Louisville, Colorado, over the failure of its employees to free him in a timely manner when he sat on a glue-laden toilet seat in October 2003. Doubt has been cast on the authenticity of his claim by a Nederland, Colorado, town official who maintains Dougherty reported a similar incident in the town’s visitors center bathroom in 2004.”

“I take it you’ve never had a restroom “emergency”.”

Wiping the seat is a constant that’s factored into any public restroom emergency I’ve had or will ever have.

It’s the price of doing business.

I don't know. At a certain age, there can sometimes be a sudden, dire warning and very little time.

Still, I have doubts about this story. The odds of that type of emergency are slim and glue on the seat would be pretty visible.
