Talk about a sticky situation.

One man after having knee surgery purchased a stool from IKEA to use while in the shower.

In theory that sounds like a great idea. Well, the stool he chose just so happens to be full of holes.

Claus Jørstad of Alta, Norway told Daily Mail:

"Sitting there and noticing the accident, I bent down to see what happened, I realized the little nutter has got stuck,"

The hot water from the shower made the plastic holes expand causing Jørstad to get umm... stuck.

But he sat there long enough for the water become cold again, so then thanks to "shrinkage" he was able to free himself.

And as funny as that is by itself, he then went to social media to share his story as sort of a warning to others and the response from IKEA is just as funny if not funnier than the original event.

Commenting on the post, IKEA told Jørstad:

"Hey Claus. We recommend that you take the stool out of the shower... or that you sit on it with the right uniform on and in the right setting. If you choose to keep it in the shower, make sure you are well dressed for your next sea excursion."

Jørstad listened because he has since covered the stool with a washcloth when he's using it.

DUH!! Probably should've done that from the beginning.
