I love the specimen of gym fauna that spend unholy amounts of narcissistic times admiring themselves in front of the mirror.

Fine and dandy, there is a full wall that can accommodate about 60 more of you in the gym, but this territory marking shit?

This is very impolite. If you are not using the machine, let others use it, especially at that wee hour of the morning and doubly especially when it is the only machine of its type in the whole effing gym. I am glad your bra size is increasing from AA cup to A cup, but that does not mean you have to behave like wee cat and mark the equipment as your sole possession.

The only good thing is that shit like this allows you to identify assholes so you can stay away from them or take whatever avoidance methods are deemed necessary.

Spread the love

  1. Go lawn saling and buy a weight set. Set it up and have your own gym… thus avoiding the egomaniacs
    Or get a bottle looks just like his and fill it up with piss, then discreetly swap them…

  2. 1. Move it to the floor beside the machine and do your set. 2. If he comes back and bitches, tell him that he wasn’t using the machine. 3. If he persists, unapologetically tell him it’s discourteous (don’t say “rude” – – no need to provoke someone) to leave personal belongings on the equipment. 4. I’ve never had anyone escalate beyond that point. But then, although I’m not physically imposing, I’ve seen men die, and I’m not shy about being direct…most guys with any sense don’t want to fuck around and find out.

  3. This is one of the reasons I don’t go to the gym much. I walk and bike outdoors. Besides, when we moved here (5 miles south, different city) the rec center doesn’t have free weights.

    BTW – is that dude admiring himself in the mirror picking his nose?

    It’s a sign-o-the-times. People these days have zero idea how to act with consideration and politeness with a shared resource. You see it everywhere, not just at the gym. One of the things I saw floating on Gab last week was shopping carts. That got me noticing. The left side of the bell curve has no problem leaving them at the bus stop, middle of parking lot, or even in parking spaces.

  4. “Oh look, someone abandoned their garbage here when they left. Off to the trash can…”

    Of course, I’m an asshole…

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
