    Long story short : I went to my sisters gym with her today because she's starting a lifting routine and I wanted to show her proper form and how to do a bunch of exercises. Some guy who was walking around and cleaning glass (who didnt look / sound retarded to me .. asides from the advice he was offering :mamoru: ) started talking to us and trying to give us workout "pointers" that were completely wrong. I was showing my sister how to squat, box squat, and do deadlifts and the entire time this guy is saying things like "that's bad for your back." or "if you go that low you're going to blow out your knees.". I didn't feel like arguing with the guy but I wasn't going to stand for someone trying to throw misinformation at me (especially since I'm trying to teach my sister the proper way to do things) so I would just curtly tell him "no it's not." to which he would respond with things like "oh? well i've never seen anybody do them here." or "the biggest guys i've ever seen in here never does things like that." I finally got sick of it and just rudely said "listen man. you're not a personal trainer. and even if you were, I didnt ask your advice, so don't give it to me because it's wrong anyways. now please leave us alone so I can show her how to workout properly." and afterwards my sister goes "I can't believe you said that to him, he's semi-retarded." I felt really bad :hs:


    CLIFFS : went to my sisters gym, showing her how to deadlift and squat properly, semi-retarded worker keeps trying to give us stupid pointers, I flipped out on him. I didn't realize he was retarded. I felt bad.

    He looked normal and didn't have any noticable speech problems... I was in disbelief about the fact he was retarded when she told me, but she works in psychology so I guess she would probably notice that sort of thing :hs: She says it's one of those cases where he's not like severely retarded from birth or anything, but he's just reeallly slow and has poor social skills. I guess that makes sense considering the guy was probably in his 30's and empties trashcans and washes glass at a ymca :hs:

    I feel terrible. I can't imagine what it must be like going through life with social / mental shortcomings and then when you actually try to talk to someone they just bitch you out... if I had known I would have talked to the guy and just listened to him and accepted his advice and then just corrected it later when he wasn't around :hs:

    Why didn't you just tell him to fuck off and kick him in the balls? Then bend your sister over the squat rack and fuck her in the ass right there to show him who the man is.

    That's ANIMAL.

    It's not just that the guy wasn't smart. He was actually retarded.

    :rofl: I would agree with you - but I think there's a difference between someone who is just really fucking stupid and someone who actually has a mental condition that's just not heavily pronounced by his speech / appearance.

    In other news : why is it that some people just can't figure out the deadlift motion? My sister rounds her back, tries to lift the weight with her legs, starts the motion on her toes, and can't keep her head up. I spent 20 minutes showing her exactly what she was doing wrong and how she should be doing it and she simply could not correct it.

    This mentally handicapped guy used to be a janitor/cleaner at my a gym where I used to also work as a lifeguard. He would come up to me and my friend (a girl) who worked with me and give us hugs...I guess becuase he knew we worked there and he saw us every day... Both my firned and I would be like WTF :ugh: every time.
