    I go to a small, local gym. It's cheap, it's a bit old fashioned, but I like it that way. I tried a Powerhouse, and it just wasn't my style. Anyway, apparently there has been beef between the current owner of the gym, and his former business partner. This was sort of resolved by the partner coming in and taking a bunch of weights and a few machines out of the gym.

    So my friend John, being a nice guy, decides that he never uses his home gym stuff, and is willing to DONATE it to our gym in an effort to help them replenish their stock.

    Well, the guy working the desk, won't accept the stuff. It's practically brand new. He says there would be liability issues or something silly like that. Won't even call the gym owner and ask him.

    So John says "Man, I got rid of my storage unit, I don't have room for this in my apartment." And I say, "Well, how much do you want for it?" He says "I was going to give it to these fucks for free. If you want it, it's yours."

    :eek3:

    Olympic set, 255lbs plus the bar, plus a pretty decent Weider bench.

    He's got another bench he's going to give me as well. Says it's more stable.
