Last week some employees come to my gym to check it out. They’re reracking the weights because my gym is fill with douche bags that won’t. I mention “hey why don’t you guys put up a sign saying rerack the weights?” “Well” says the low man from the corporate totempole “Corporate headquarters won’t let us do it because they think it looks tacky”… wtf.
“If you see someone doing that just go up to them and tell them to put their weights away.” Well thanks do I get a free membership now that I work for you guys as gym enforcer? (no I didn’t say that, I was polite)
So today I’m in the gym waiting for a bench. There’s one that seems open that I’m about to take when some guy comes up to me and says “oh wait, got one more set to do” I say no prob. Well he dose his set of bench with a few reps of 115, gets up and leaves.
I say “hey man, you going to make me put your weights away for you?” Shithead responds with a yes. Looking right at him I push a 10 and a 25 plate off the bar onto the floor an attempt to make him feel uncomfortable in hopes he will discontinue his selfish ways.
I respond with “thats a very assholeish thing for you to do.” Well shithead takes off without a word, and I spend the rest of my time there staring shithead down trying to make him feel as uncomfortable as possible. He realizes I’m benching and lifting more than 3 times what he is and he stays on the other side of the room.
If I could I would like to of beat the hell out of the guy but because of legal reasons obviously the consequences out weight the benefits.
I hope he injures himself and is never able to workout in my gym again. Yes I really mean it. People like that are worthless.
Now just so people don’t get the wrong idea I’m not a violent guy (I’m not opposed to it) and I don’t lose my temper but I do confront people for disrespecting others and it’s lead to a few close calls. Lucky for me people never want to throw down. Probably cause I put my time in at the gym.
So I thought I’d share my frustration with my fellow T-Nation members.
