Issue that needs to be addressed
Hey guys there is a problem that needs to be taken care of. I left the gym last nite (24hrs) and counted 4 syringes in the parking lot. Two of them still had the pin attached. I didn't have to look around - they were on the way to my truck and no I didn't drop them on the way in. What type of image does this portray? Are we on the same level as crackheads? What if it was your son or nephew that you catch playing with one? We have a bad enough rep as is without some idiot throwing his contaminated waste in a public parking lot. Look I'm no monster (6'1" 215) but if I see you doing this no questions - I will beat the living **** out of you. Mods if you think this doesn't belong please delete but its useless peons who give us all a bad name with actions like that. Thanks DD

WOW, I work at a gym and I have never seen such a thing. Thats so f*cked up. Did you at least pick them up and throw them away??
I agree its ridiculious on how irresponsible some people are. If you are old enough to use needles, then be old enough to get rid of them properly.

Yeh I picked them up (with a towel) and threw them in the dumpster. It upsets me because I have 2 nephews that pick up anything they find.

wow, i feel you brotha. like "Ammar" said, if your old enough to use them, you should be a ble to be responsible enough to dispose of them properly. i hope whoever it was doesn't ever run into you "DaddyDbol" might be in for some "slap-therapy"

I worked at a gm for a while and I saw syringes on the floor in the stairwell on 2 occassions...I know how you feel bro. I was pissed..A lot of teens go to this gym and this is the exit stairwell that everyone goes out thru. It just portrays such a horrible image. Please people do things right..these things only further damage our image to the general public and it is bad enough already....

cops sit right outside my gym 24/7, and everyone that does AAS are real discreet about it, can't say I've ever run into that problem.

Somehow i doubt it was someone jabbing themselves in the parking lot a few times on the way in. could it have been someone trying to make the big guys in the gym look bad?

I bet it has some connection with the diapers i find in the parking lot. could be the same people.

I had seen it a couple of times before but not that bad. There are always a couple stuck in the ceiling of the bathroom but that doesn't bother me because the cleaning crew will get those, its the kid that picks one up and pokes themselves and catches something that worries me. You know if they will throw a used syringe on the ground what kind of people they are.

Bump. dispose of your needles properly guys.. get a sharps container, and take them to the hospital. they don't ask any questions.

Where do you people train? I've never been a huge fan of the 24 Hr Fitness down the street, but I've never seen pins in the parking lot or diapers for that matter.
People have no respect for their community. I won't even throw a gum wrapper out the window. Meanwhile you guys are finding recycled gear and huggies.
People are worthless.

Very disgusting... something should be done... the last thing we need is to be associated with heroine addicts... DaddyD... If you find someone doing it... Give them a smack in the head from all the boys and girls at AR! Peace

I actually see them all the time on the floor in the bathroom at Bally's. It makes me sick. It's not like their even near a toliet or a garbage. I see them right when I walk in the door. God forbid if I happend to step on one. I'm kickin someone's ass.

I never did or would take my shot in any of these places. Only place I will do it is at home, after a shower, in a clean environment, by me or my wife, and then into the sharps container goes the pin.

man, and i thought the people at my gym were assholes because they didn't rack the dumbells!
12-22-2003, 05:23 PM #17
even if you live w/ mom and dad...who the hell shoots up in the gym locker room or out in their car for that matter? Aren't ppl afraid of walking around with vials or amps in their pockets, in the car etc??
And why throw the pinzs in the parking lot???
There's some real jerk offs out there...

people shoot up in the locker room and bathrooms of gym's because they want everyone to think they're "hard asses". i used to know some kids at school (high school) that brought their gear to school just so they could shoot themselves in the bathroom, or in the locker room "b4 the big game" . or maybe its like having sex in a public place. The element of getting caught makes it taht much more exciting. theres nothing more thrilling than having some 65 yr old man walk in on u poking urself in the ass w/ a needle, at the local preschool bathroom
