a guy at my gym always does standing calf raises on our smith machine. He never puts back his weights even the ones he puts on the floor to stand on… wtf is that?! I don’t mind plates on the bar but I don’t want to be taking weights off the floor too. Common courtesy and sense is what people like this need.[/quote]
Does anyone here have an effective ‘cure’ for these types of people? Tried and true stuff?
My experience has been that these assholes are ‘Me,myself, and I’ types, and I have never been able to convince them to change. Maybe they will stop doing it THAT TIME I tell them. If I am lucky, maybe next time when I am around.
But until these assholes ‘choose’ to change, or whatever alignment of planets get them thinking outside their little box … we are cursed to Rant.
Ultimately, if someone here has a solution, it would be very useful in other areas, to everybody here.
For example, the bus stops in my city are very long and have only 2 openings, 1 at each end of a 20 foot-long glass corridor. Hoping not to freeze or catch some wind, asshole smokers don’t give a shoot, enter the bus stop and keep on puffing, even though they are 1 or 2 for 12 of us non-smokers. Even if these smokers try to easy their conscience by smoking right next to exits, the fumes and ‘aura’ gets felt everywhere in the bus stop.
Having never seen anybody successful deal with these assholes, and many have tried, I just gave up. When an asshole smoker comes in the bus stop, I get out of it as soon as possible. I try to do this as soon as they reach for their lighters. When my timing is right, some smokers ‘connect the dots’, look at me in a surprised way, but keep on puffing.
The cold analytical side of me would say “These sicks assholes Dominate. They are the Alphas. They have won. They do what their ‘heart’ desires, and we can only whine and bitch about it. These assholes display their pissing-marks with smoke, and drive the non-alphas out of there. So in the end, theoretically smoke-free bus stop is just the opposite, a smoker-full zone. Way to go, Assholes.”
Tried and true solutions would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!
