Ear phones or not, 30+ years in the Gym has taught me that the vast majority of people have zero awareness of their surroundings and are completely incapable of learning…without the application of lots of pain.
There is a special place in Hell for bastards who sit on stairs, find the narrowest part of a corridor to stop and stretch, use it as a storage location for their bags etc.
I swear to the God I don’t believe in, I was once doing a Clean and Jerk, the weight was overhead and I just unlocked it to bring it down when an idiot (for such he was) walked directly underneath the end of the bar. After the carnage, I asked him if I was invisible. He did agree I wasn’t.
Just yesterday I tried to get into the Gym and found an idiot pinning the door by using it to stretch against.
The people are so stupid and it makes me very sad.[/quote]
Guy with head phones on was benching yesterday, he has 355 locked out, when this chick proceeds to start removing a 10 off one side. Apparently she asked twice if he was using it and with no response, she just decided to take it, despite the fact that it was going up and down. My mind was blown.
