I told a guy yesterday to take fish oil for his achey joints.
“Yeah? I take fish oil. How much do you take?”
Me: “8-10 grams a day. I’ve gone as high as 15 grams but I definitely notice the difference when I stop taking it.”
“10 grams? That’s like 25,000 milligrams. Way beyond the RDA.”
Me: “Where did you get 25,000 mg?”
“10 grams. That’s 25,000…”
Me: “No. Every 1 gram is 1,000 milligrams, so 10 grams is 10,000 milligrams.”
“Are you a pharmacist by trade?”
And my recent favorite:
I overheard a guy and girl talking. They had come to the gym together and were probably in their first or second year of college. Maybe. The girl is at the lat pull down station, the guy is doing cable cross overs.
Girl: “Oh my gosh! You love working your chest! How many exercises do you do for it?”
Guy: “I sometimes spend an hour on my chest, maybe two hours.”
Girls: “What about your legs?”
Guy: “I’d say in the last year I’ve maybe only worked my legs three times. I think they’re fine.”
(they were twigs, by the way)
