Locker Room Obstacle Course

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I've ranted before about the Women's locker room in the gym at work. Everything from men wandering in when I'm in the shower to women NOT showering after a long workout (I mean really...you don't think people will notice that your all sweaty? emoticon ).

One thing that was happening, women leaving their things just any old place. On the bench (taking the whole thing by laying each item you use out so no one else can use the bench), dropping you over size (or any size for that matter) gym bag on the floor and leaving there for someone to trip over), cramming your locker so full that you hang your street clothes on hangers on your locker door, then closing it just enough to block the other lockers around you, etc. These things got to be such an issue that signs were posted NOT to do it. To put everything in a locker. The signs worked for a while, but now we're back to all the bad habits.

Case in point...yesterday and today...someone used the locker next to mine (I have a permanent locker in the gym, I sign up for it every month) dropped this HUGE gym bag, stuffed to the gills, right on the floor under my locker emoticon . Then she hung her street clothes on the inside of her open locker door and shut it just enough to block my locker door. So I had to open her locker door (and hope nothing fell out of as it was stuffed to the gills too!) to open mine. I almost got my foot caught in the strap of the bag. I should point out here, there's a sign on the wall about 2 feet from all this that says to put your stuff in a locker, as things left out could be a tripping/safety hazard. Anyway...I grumbled a bit as I was changing into my workout stuff, went off and did 65 mins on the treadmill and then went back to change. Guess what? The bag and stuff was still there! And I was the last woman in the gym! There wasn't any other women in there. So where is this person at? I moved the stuff (bag and locker door) out of the way, hopped into the shower, got dressed and left. All the stuff was still there. I guess some people can't read or just think what they read doesn't apply to them. And I have no idea who's stuff it is as the locker isn't one of the ones that have a permanent user. Just So frustrating! emoticon

Like I mentioned in the above. I did 65 mins today. But that's just because I lost track of time. I can't do that tomorrow as the 2nd level boss will be here tomorrow and I'll need to be back at my desk by 1. emoticon

Eating was so so last night. It was Mixed Plate night (that's where you use all the leftovers from the freeze..all on one plate!) It was OK. Not sure what we're having tonight. Maybe chili? Or Teri meat loaf? I'll work it out. emoticon

Talked to Karry..she wasn't having a good day. Home stuff. I wish there was something I could do to help her work though stuff. emoticon

Hubby had to skip PT today. He was too sore. He decide to wear a tank top last night to bed. I told him it wasn't a good idea. It meant he had to raise his arm up over his head. It really aggravated his shoulder. I helped him take it off this morning and he's been back taking the pain pills today. I guess men just have to try and show how tough they are. emoticon

OK..that's it for this Thursday. Have a great evening everyone!

    Maybe writing a Locker Room Blog to Everyone would be the thing to do. Try it and see what happens. But don't sign your name. They will think it came down from Management. Hopefully it will help and take care of the problem for awhile. God Blessings to Everyone. Have a Wonderful Weekend. Take Care. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!

    Men make the worst patients. I STILL think you should write a locker room blog! And then email it to all the offending women! emoticon Hugs, Calen~

    People are just so inconsiderate aren't they? I hate when people do that crap at the gym.
