    Haha tonight at the gym... funny noobs...

    Haha hey all, got back from the gym not so long ago. Couple of things happened which made me laugh, d*mn new year noobs!

    First one, i walked up to a rather plump teenager on a machine and asked "how many sets do you have left?" and he replyed "whats a set?". I laughed and walked away.

    Second one, i was just about to get onto a machine and a guy asked me how long i'd be, i said we can alternate if you want. He said yea ok cool. So i cranked the weight up, and did my set, he jumped on and did his set (at my weight), i did mine then he said nah mate sorry gonna leave this one! haha.. he walked away clutching his shoulder.

    D*mn new years resolution noobs!

    I decided to take the first week off this year. My gym is small enough as it is, and I dont need to be surrounded with non-english speaking a-holes.

    This is freaky...

    Yesterday was overpacked, today... I was alone in the place for almost 2 hours!

    Some tubby teen came in, did maybe 2-3 sets on 4 machines and left... I guess he got discouraged...

    Being shoulder day, I like it when I am almost alone... I like taking my sweet time.

    lol...what i was thinkin....

    i never usually have this prob, my family owns gyms around new england, so i can typically dip in and out, and boot ppl the fvck off whatever i want...
    i dont most of the time, but when i'm in a serious rush to get shlt done, most people just let me on the machines/let me have the freeweights anyway...
    That or i just use the college gym, most ppl here are total nerds so i dont have to worry about re-racking lots of weight

    At the gym on monday. Great! There were only a few non-regulars there. Better! It was a chest and tri's day for me. One of my fav's. So here I am between sets and one of the owners wants to say something to me so I stepped away for one sec and I also grabbed my new weights (dumbell flat presses). Turn back to my bench and some ASS HOLE moved it to an incline possition, and was standing there talking to anotherguy for like 5 min!! I interrupted him and said, "Did you move this bench?!" He replied, "Ya. I was hoping to do some incline." Pissed off I said "Well I GUESS I can use another bench!" Ya know, I don;t mind switching benches. I really don't. BUT HAVE THE COURTESY TO ASK BEFORE YOU MOVE MY PHUCKING BENCH!!!! I know they pay thier dues just like I do, but have some **** respect for the others around you. Someone needs to teach these asses some etticate(sp).
