Friday pool grip

Friday, February 15, 2013

why is it that some people think lap lanes are there for them to stand around and socialized for over 10 minutes?
Yesterday I was at the pool, to begin with it was busier then usual, the normal swim classes and swim team but also a number of others. The lap pool isnít that big 5 lanes and during swim team 2 are used by them well shortly after I decided to use the smaller pool to do my laps I noticed several people just standing there talking. And whenever I looked up for at least the next 10 laps they where still there just standing (not stretching, not packing up, just standing and waving their arms around talking) occupying 2 lanes leaving really only 1 fully usable. Why didnít they relocate to the little pool (just as deep) or the hot tubs? I know several people looked at the lap pool when they came in and simply moved over to the little pool and at least 1 I think waited out the talkers in the hot tub. Eventually they did get out and head to the hot tubs but stillÖ
Ok my grip for the day is done.
Have a good weekend
