Story time, children. Gather round in the circle and don’t leave Bobby out. I just returned from the gym after encountering a group of boys around my age …they were fucking shit up so badly it got me mad enough to write about it here.
I have to pay for the gym I use. As I was stretching, these assholes came in. and none were dressed in workout gear. I assumed they were guests from a huge party going on upstairs. Which also meant that they didn’t pay to enter the room.
There were around six of them and you know what pissed me off? These guys were just fucking around. They began putting the weight machines on their maximum loads and attempted to lift what they clearly couldn’t handle.
If you were them, what plausible options would you choose from if you couldn’t handle a weight?
A) Not use the machine because I didn’t pay.
B) Adjust to a lighter load I can work with.
Did they choose any of the above? NOPE. You know what they did instead? THEY LIFTED AND THEN DROPPED THE WEIGHTS. They waltzed into a room they didn’t pay for and could have broken something. One of them was even hanging from the machine like some crazy-ass sloth hybrid. The worst part is that management didn’t even do anything!
The only reason for why I’m more annoyed than I should be is because they were distracting both me and another guy who was there too. They were looking at what we were doing and it just felt so intrusive. PERSONAL SPACE MAN.
Fortunately, I was already doing my finishing stretches so I wasn’t there for too long. So I decided to turn the tables. I went to get water and stood there and watched them through the glass window. I just sipped my water and stared. It’s not even close to petty revenge but at least I made them feel uncomfortable. I hope they don’t actually live here.
TL;DR - Unless you want to get death glared by some chick sipping water, don’t be a crazy-ass sloth hybrid who doesn’t pay for the gym.
