Or just a chronic rule breaker?
I arrive at the gym at about 6:45 the other morning and there are 3 people there.
There are 9 available treadmills, I take the one straight ahead and jump on it.
I am half way through a half hour run, music loud, pretty decent pace, and woman taps me on the shoulder and says ” Are you almost done?”
earbuds out to say ” No”
“Did you sign up for this machine ?”
I look around me – a little bigger than life- like you must be kidding- my head following treadmills 1-9 all empty except for the one I am on.
I say ” Seriously? ”
I hear a dramatic HARUMPH sound and I think she threw her arms in the air.
I keep running and she takes the one right next to me.
The next day at the gym I see her out of the corner of my eye and all I want to do is take her covetted treadmilll #4 and not sign up for it and then maybe if I am lucky take it outside for a little fist fight.
But instead I take #3, sign up for it and experience some severe remorse for giving in.
