Can I tell you how insane really rude people at the gym make me?
I know I’ve mentioned before that the people who just start up conversations with you while you’re working out drive me nuts? I mean, you’re sitting there with your headphones on and people just start talking to you and then you take off your headphones and then they won’t shut up. You keep trying to put them back on but it won’t work, they just keep talking?
Well in the last week two other people have incenses me at the gym. First, there was this woman who was stretching in the stretching area. She was on the phone having a conversation and it wasn’t just whispering, it was quite loud. She talked and talked and kept stretching and there were people all around.
People who weren’t talking out loud and bugging the shit out of people around them.
Then the other day was the kicker. I was, once again, in the stretching area and there was a woman stretching. She had her iPhone playing music out of the speakers. Seriously, her iPhone was playing, James Taylor no less, and she had it blaring out of the speakers.
Has she never heard of headphones??? Not only that but she was wearing sweatpants, a t-shirt and flip-flops. Yeah, you read that right. FLIP FLOPS.
I couldn’t believe it. I thought about saying something nasty to her but I didn’t feel like engaging. Instead I just fumed.
Then she walked over to the weight machines, with the iPhone still playing OUT LOUD and proceeded to do some weights.
Did I mention she was in flip-flops?
WHAT THE FUCK PEOPLE??? Here are some tips for the gym.
DON’T WEAR FLIP FLOPS!
DON’T TALK OUT LOUD ON YOUR PHONE IN FRONT OF EVERYONE.
DO NOT BLAST OUT YOUR MUSIC.
ESPECIALLY IF IT’S SHITTY “NOT GYM” MUSIC
Ok, I feel better now.
