Monday Once Again And Another Gym Rant

Monday, August 19, 2013

Well...Monday is back. emoticon At least I got something done today. Tomorrow I have to get started on my new project. emoticon

I did my workout today. When I got into the locker room everything was good. I changed into my gym clothes, sorted out my locker, etc. Plugged my ear buds in (I'm listening to The Host on my iPod), hit the treadmill and was a happy camper. emoticon

But after my workout? Not such a happy camper. I went back into the locker and room and what did I find? ONE person had taken up/over HALF of the only bench in the locker room. She had taken her HUGE gym bag and spread "stuff" out. Plus she was using 3 lockers (one was crammed with more stuff, one had the overflow from the first one, and a third one to hang her clothes off of.) and her shoes were just setting in the walk way. This is the same lady that leaves said HUGE gym bag just setting out in the locker room for days. emoticon

I had to go around her and squeeze into the space in front of my locker. She was next to me. But my iPod, Fitbit, etc was on the far end of the bench. As more ladies came in. more dirty looks were directed her way. She just ignored them..if she even noticed them! And of course none of us said anything. It was just easier, at least for me. I was late anyway since my workout had gone a bit over the time allotted to me. Some people just don't have any idea what is going on around them! emoticon

We had a doozy of a storm last night. Lots of thunder, lighting, and rain. And it's might do that tonight too. The thunder rolled most of the night. I LOVED it! emoticon emoticon

So eating over the weekend was up and down. I tried to watch what I was eating but a few times it did get out of hand. I'm back to eating right today. I have a pork roast in the crock pot for dinner tonight. I used one of those infusion thing to inject marinade into the pork. We'll see how it tastes.

Hubby has a Dentist appt this afternoon, after he gets off work. Better him then me. emoticon

Well...I think that's all for now. Have a great rest of Monday!

    Okay I usually say something BEFORE I get fed up, so I can be polite and professional with someone who may not be wearing clothing (or I myself may be just out of the shower): "Could you please consolidate your items so that others may share the bench?" AND I would expect a chorus of other women to join in with my request! If the space hog refused I would (assuming I have clothes on!) march out to the counter and ask the gym staff to remind the lady to SHARE THE SPACE. And if I were dressed only in a towel, I would ask someone who was fully clothed to step out to the desk and ask them to come deal with a minor problem.

    I'm making pulled pork in the crock tomorrow. A different recipe than I usually use. It has root beer in it. Interesting? I think you should leave that a lady a note taped to her locker or pinned to her crap and tell her that she's now famous because you've been blogging about her self-centeredness! Tell her you've gotten lots of replies saying to tell her to clean up her act or go somewhere else or turn her in to management! Don't put your name on it. Just leave it for her... You think she'd be embarrassed and wonder who was doing that? Is this someone who works in your office?
