Im not one for violence. I mind my own business and always have done.
But one thing that really fucking pisses me off, and I can’t believe that it actually happened, is dickheads coming into the gym, my sanctuary, and trying to get me riled up.
The gym is my retreat, a place to take out frustrations and a place to better myself, at school I used to get shoved around a lot, it wasn’t the nicest place.
As a result I pussied out back then and left before my exams which has set me back a bit (have to spend 2 years to re-take them). I hate everything about that school and the people that did it, I never thought i’d have to deal with those wankers again.
So here I am, 2 years later, in the gym training minding my own business, when out the corner of my eye I see a guy from my old school (one of the wankers) in there working out with his buddy. I think nothing of it and carry on with my set of dumbbell rows.
So then, while I’m resting, he struts over to me and says ‘well look who it is, still a bit spotty aye dan?’(I have some acne, whatever) I couldn’t fucking believe it. I wanted to smash the 40kg dumbbell into his face. But I controlled myself, and simply replied ‘Piss off.’
So he pushed me, by then I was raging, the only thing stopping me from pounding the shit out of him, and turning my session into some ‘explosive horizontal pressing cardio’ was the fact I might get banned from my gym (Which is a very sweet gym).
I ended up just turning my back on him, picking up the dumbbell, then carrying on with my set (while he was watching). He said ‘whatever’ half way through it and walked off. The weasel.
Really why im making this post, is I’m asking for your opinions on what you would of done? He’ll probably come back at me no doubt, I dont know if i’d be able to restrain myself so much again.
