What Would You Have Done?


#1

I was at my gym (work there), at the outside pool.
There's 2 slides (small ones). I like them, I'm a kid what can I say.

Well, there's 2 guys laying out in the sun right in front of the slides. I try to go down the 1st time without making a splash (usually try to make biggest splash possible, by going faster).
The 2nd time I went, I could see the one guy got some water on him, and the guy a little further back complained saying how I got some water on him.

I just said, do you mind moving over (literally 4 ft would have done the trick). He was like (not in a super rude way, but bluntly), said he wasn't going to move.
So, I just went down the curvier slide (which sucks), but whatever.

What would you have done?

Granted, I work there so I was trying to provide good customer service and not be a dick about it. I really wanted to keep going down the one though just to piss that one guy off.


#2

fucking drowned him.


#3

Slides? LOL nice job.

You asked. He refused. If he didn't want to get wet he would move anyway.

If your sitting near a fucking pool of all places...you just may get some water on you. I would of just used the slide I wanted.


#4

Definitely woulda swam under them and pissed in the pool.


#5

you work there...stop being a pussy and tell them to fucking move. I would've come down and made a huge splash had they not moved, then let them handle it from there. T-man up punk!


#6

Cannonball, maybe jackknife. Your job would prolly be done at that point though.


#7

Slit their fucking throats.


#8

Well thats not a little harsh.


#9

use your muscle and punk his ass, thats what they're for


#10

WTF? They're at a pool! What do you they expect? I would just ignored them...they woulda eventually moved it was that annoying to them!


#11

the voice of reason.


#12

start crying and stamp my feet.


#13

True, I workout just so I can have muscle to punk peoples asses.


#14

LOL at the responses. I'm sure in the end me working there wouldn't have been a huge deal, but I tend to be too nice sometimes.

slitting the throat- I'll use that next time


#15

he's the one who complained. He isnt going to keep everyone from sliding. You should have slided another time and made a bomb.

On the other hand you work there... I dont know.

One time at my gym a PT was being a dick. He was using the only rack for his t-trax or something when He could be anywhere else. Finally I told him to him he was a clown and I went to the reception do a complain. He got fired. You should never forget that you are paid to be there and other people pay to be there


#16

Well, you work there, and it wasn't like it was that big of an issue anyway. So I think you handled that in the best way possible.


#17

I think you handled that well enough.


#18

Common sense, FTW!!!

Seeing as how you work there though, I'd say what you did was just fine. If you didn't work there, well that would've been a different story.
