    You should have told them to quit bouncing the fucking ball in the weight training area. Besides that, its just their style to talk while working out.. some people like to make it a social experience (them), some like to make it an antisocial experience (you and me).

    the other day i was putting the weights on the bar for a military press. I start with 35 lb plates, and then add weight from there, then take that off again at the end. at one point i had a 35 plate and a 10 plate on there. some stupid asian and1 fuck came up and said "youy know you can just use one 45 pound plate and thats the same thing right"

    i almost hit him

    whenever people do that to me, i always try and convince them that there is some sort of reasoning behind it and that using two smaller plates instead of a 45 makes the lift harder to complete and leads to a better workout. just to see if they'll believe it. one guy started doing it a couple weeks later :mamoru:

    man thats nothing. this by far was my worst experience at the gym.

    im doing deadlifts inside the power rack (have nowhere else to do them). the gym is kinda packed, everything is being used. i'm working with 315-365. adjacent to the power rack is the squat rack, where a guy is doing some standing military presses. this douche (well i refer to him as a douche because of this event) asks if he can work in. i'm like sure, thinking he meant to do deadlifts as well. so he starts raising the pins, and says he doing squats. so i'm trying to be accomodating and ask how much weigh he plans on working with. he says 35s. in my mind im like fuck, i dont wanna re-rack and unrack all this weight between every set. and i tell him that. then i mention to him if he can work in on the squat rack instead, since 1) the bar was already set to his height and 2) there wouldnt need to be much work in between sets in terms of racking weight. he looks at me and says, its not that bad (referring to reracking all the weight) and that it doesn't take that long. he gives me the dirtiest look and then walks away.

    turns out i see this guy at baja fresh a couple months later, and pulls a deja vu. he makes some sort of an impossible request to the clerk, not exactly sure. clerk gets the manager to settle the dispute he starts being a jerk again cuz he doesnt get his way, and ends up being escorted out of hte restaurant.

    In the gym I go to there are a lot of homo's so sometimes I have to take someone's help with a grain of salt when they offer or ask for help. This time was no exception. A very built guy who I thought was probably gay from the start, you can usually tell for reasons unknown just by their expressions most of the time, asked me to spot him on his bench. I'm not sure exactly what he was benching but it didn't look like a lot for him. As I'm helping him on the spot I swear he is faking struggling on every rep from the start. When he finishes he's like, "I'm sorry, I didn't really need a spot I just wanted to get your number".

    I would have definitely asked him to stop dribbling the ball. I don't mind when people chit chat because I have my headphones on if I'm alone and if I'm not alone I enjoy working out to good conversation too.

    Sort of similar -

    The way i take Cee is putting it in one of those little dixie cups, then taking a mouthful of OJ, dumping the CEE in, and gulping. Well last night I tipped the CEE cup pretty much vertically over my face to get it all in there.

    I get to the gym, walk in, and the two people at the front desk go "dude - wipe your fucking nose off now." "Huh?" "There's white powder all over your nose, get it off NOW." "Yeah okay you guys are just fucking with me, I'm not falling for....OH CRAP THE CEE"

    So now all the gym attendants think I'm goddamn Scarface everytime I go in there :mamoru:
