now THAT would be embarrassing. I couldnt do that to someone ‘cos I’d hate it to happen to me. At the same time however, I giggle smile

I’d think it was a hoax too I think…

wasn’t going to, but couldn’t resist: (sorry, I know this is crap)
Now that’s what you call a pain in the arse. smile

Whether you think it’s a hoax or not, you investigate. If it is a hoax, you toss the hoaxer out of the store, and make it clear he’s not welcome to come back.

Otherwise, if it’s not a hoax, you get sued, and not in a good way.

Unless it was super glue, I wouldn’t think it would dry fast enough to catch someone.  And even if it was, why didn’t the paramedics have any solvent?  I suppose it could have been a rarer industrial glue.

If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

It could have been a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) I suppose.

But most of Home Depot’s glues wouldn’t have set instantly.  He should have noticed something and had time to get up.  Frankly, I’m rather disgusted that he didn’t even wipe the seat off before sitting down.
