- Let's all face it, we all go to the gym for some form of ??? Ding Ding Ding, that's right- EXERCISE. So why is it that a good percentage of people do multiple rounds in the gym parking lot just so they can get front row parking? What's worse is that most of us get stuck behind these lazy assholes because they've blocked the entire lane waiting for someone to drive off.
- Note- the above point is completely valid if you are a Mom or Dad with an infant and toddler in tow. We all know it's taken a small miracle to get everyone out of the house and to the gym in one piece- so by all means take the front row, you deserve it.
- Another offense are the ungrateful door walkers- you know who we're talking about. It's that jackass on his/her phone who walks through the door that you are holding open without saying "Thank you" or even acknowledging your presence. These folks should be warned- one of these days you'll catch a swift kick up your pompous ass because, let's face it- you deserve it. On the flip-side there are those folks who will gladly hold the door open for you and even say "hello or have a good day", it's nice to know that these little niceties still exist.
- Last, but not least, are those folks that stand really close, whether it be in line to check in or walking to the locker room. Given that this may be a personal preference in body space- some people's personal bubble is a lot smaller than others- this could be perceived as rude depending on who you are. My litmus test is, if I can feel you breathing on my neck as I'm walking to the locker room- you're too close! Someone from our Snatch It Squad has a bumper sticker which reads "If you're gonna ride my ass, you need to pull by hair", I think it's fair to say this can be applied to close walkers as well.
Do you have a pre-workout rudeness story? Drop us some words and let us know- DO IT! We love to hear from all of you.
