Ok, so I don't even know if there IS such a contest, but if there was, THIS is clearly the winner by a longshot!
Today I was on the elliptical machine (breathing as if my heart rate was 140 BPM) and suddenly tasted nail polish. This lady, three machines down from me, was painting her nails while she was on the machine! I HAD to ask her to stop because I just couldn't breath. Believe it or not, she was very apologetic. SHE HONESTLY DIDN'T REALIZE!!! Are you kidding me?? How stupid can you be?
If I wasn't bobbing up and down on my machine (choking), I would have taken a picture. It would have won Best 365Photo! (No contest there either, but I'm feeling particularly competitive today.)
Other odd gym moments?
- This one happens more than I prefer so it's more like a pet-peeve! I'm on the elliptical and there are at least 6 open machines on each side of me. Along comes Mr. Drippingwetwithsweatasifhejustgotoutofaswimmingpool and takes the machine right next to me! Isn't there some type of unwritten "rule" about that? I hear there is something like that for the men's restroom.
- I've seen women working out in full make-up, hair flowing all over the place and rings, earrings and other (ah-hem) jewelry. Well, sometimes you can see things, you know.
- Men working out in very short, loose shorts. 'nuff said!
We've all seen odd things at our gyms. Got any pet-peeves? Get 'em out here. I feel better already! Thanks for listening. :)
