Reason I ask is because tonight I told a co-worker who I saw training with a group of guys doing curls in the squat rack (yeah!)
The issue was when they were done they moved on and left about 6 plates on the ground. I nicely asked my staff person working out if he could pick up the weights.
I went on to do an exercise and I hear his training partner saying along the lines of “they told you to put the weights away? Are you working? Let them tell me that. I pay my membership”
I blurted out while lifting that it’s not our jobs to pick up after members.
Once done I did apologize if I sounded rude but explained the reason for why a member should pick up after themselves (pretty much obvious that it’s common sense).
So, if you don’t pick up weights, why don’t you?
I always though it was just pure laziness, but it seems some people may think that they are entitled by paying a membership to not be courteous to others.
