Not IF related

Ok, in case you don't figure it out, this post is in no way IF related. It's more just something that I thought I'd share since it's one of those pet peeve things.

See, the thing is, I really enjoy going to the gym and getting my sweat on, and up til about 3 weeks ago I wasn't able to enjoy this past time because I was doing IVF. Now that I'm back on the wagon again, I've been spending some good quality time at my gym.

When I used to go regularly, I would see the same people day-in, day-out and you get used to seeing them. Since I've been gone it seems that there have been some new members that have joined on. Don't get me wrong, I like seeing new people working out, but there are some things that I just don't like or that just baffle me and takes away from my workout experience.

I'll list them below for your reading pleasure (and because I have nothing better to do right now):

- Mullet Man: There is a new man in my spin class with a very interesting mullet. It's still business in the front, party in the back, but he also has a bald patch right at the top-back part of his head, so essentially there's all this hair everywhere except for a nice little bald ring in the back. Now, how do I know this? Because I spent the better part of an hour in my spin class studying the back of his head since he came in late and sat on the bike right in front of me. In addition, he was wearing his shirt inside out...maybe that was done inadvertently because he was running late, who knows? But, the bald-mullet, I'm not so sure.

- Ass Cracker: Yes, there was a woman in spin class who decided to wear her low-rider shorts...It was not a pretty sight and unfortunately, she was sitting next to Mullet Man and so I was accosted by a view of her ass crack for the better part of an hour.

- Stinky Man: One word - Shower.

- Grunter: I get it. The class is tough, but grunting only makes me want to hit you and that would probably make you grunt even louder.

All of these people and so much more have invaded my sanctuary of sweat and I feel violated. What happened during the weeks I was gone? Was my gym invaded and all the normal people replaced with weirdos? It's a sad, sad situation...

You should slip something into their water bottles. Spin can be difficult enough without having painful sights and smells around you! And speak to the gym about letting these lifeforms in without asking you!

HAHAHA. I'm glad you're getting back to the gym but seriously, how can these people be so clueless?

heehee...thanks for the laugh! I sometimes take a body-sculpting class at my gym and there's an annoying dude who always repeats what the instructor says, counts loudly and then tries to get us to do 15 more reps or crap like that. *argh*!

Stopping by from ICLW.

Stinky is the worst. No, it is not ok to stink up the gym just because you are working out! *gag*

:) This made me think of a play that I saw recently. One of the ladies wore tight, short clothing in most of the scenes. I know the clothes were from her personal wardrobe and couldn't help but thinking that she'd feel more comfortable and look better if she wore one size up. She had incredible butt cleavage as well.... Needless to say, I don't remember much about the rest of the play...

Too funny... I guess the gym is a great place to people watch (?), but not smell, thank you very much.
