About a dozen blogs ago, I wrote about how my trainer took my measurements with strands of rope. I remedied that situation by purchasing an extra long tape measure for him. He wasn't in when I dropped it off, but next time I saw him, I mentioned it.
He is a little oblivious, and still doesn't see why using a rope is wrong. That part is immaterial, but I did try to explain to him how it could be perceived as humiliating to some people and that it is much better to use a tape measure. He was willing to use it, and maybe over time, he gets it, or maybe he doesn't it, but at least where I am concerned, I spoke up for myself, and handled it.
In my humble opinion, it was a very civil thing to do, and maybe I helped someone else down the road be treated a little more humanely. That was my goal anyway.
I am happy with myself.
