I haven't been in here in a few days. Some gold in here recently.

I'll touch on the bathroom etiquette not only at the gym but in general and at work. I used to be a tattoo artist and clean hands are HUGE to me. In order to obtain a license, part of the class was an hour long on how to wash your hands correctly and what to do after. (not touching the faucet with bare hands, how to dry, how to remove rubber gloves etc.) At the gym it absolutely amazes me at how many people I see come out of the toilet/urinal area that do not wash their hands after. Thankfully the gym has hand sanitizer, spray and paper towels about every 5 feet. Recently at work, I notice every morning someone comes into the office and takes a massive shit in the mens restroom and doesn't flush the toilet. There are only two men that work in the office, one of which is me and the other is the plant manager. It is possible that it is a production employee but there are only a few that have access to the office during non-business hours. The biggest thing that pisses me off about this is this is the bathroom that is used by visitors who come by our facility. The paints a fantastic picture of who we are as a business to other companies that do business with us.

A younger guy probably around 18-22 age range started the gym last week and does not understand personal space at all. It seems that every time I'm in the middle of a set this jack ass will get within inches of me. Last night I decided the next time he does it I'm going to drop a dumbbell on his foot.

Just when did my dick become infected? I don't piss on my hands, and urine is sterile anyways. If I scratch where me belt hits my muffin, do I need to wash my hands? How about it I scratch my arm? My leg? What about if I just adjust myself thru my pockets?

I breach my skin on the regular, with finger pricks to test my blood (3-5/day), and shots (4+/day) to take my insulin. I don't EVER wipe the area with alcohol. In 37+ years, not a single injection site or finger infection.

All this talk of bathroom hygiene reminds me of something I saw outside of the gym or work place. I was at a club/sports bar one night for the Salsa dancing event. I was in the men's room washing up when I saw this guy come out after dropping a deuce. He proceeds to just walk straight out of the restroom. No washing. No nothing. Later he's in the dance class before the open dancing started grabbing all these unsuspecting women's hands.

If we are moving to work bathroom stories... the one I found oddly fascinating was walking into the bathroom to find a guy washing his bare feet in the sink.

Come to find out a little later that it was due to religious purposes and he was getting ready to pray, but definitely took me off guard!

It grosses me out when I'm dropping a deuce in the work bathroom and I can hear someone brushing their teeth. Bro, my fecal matter is in the air!

Old dudes that hit on girls, especially in the sauna when they don't have anywhere to go or escape. So they're stuck and have to make small talk.

Sometimes I think it's annoying/cringey. Other times I admire their ability to just not give a flying shit lol

My biggest pet peeve at the gym are those annoying ass high school kids that sit there on their phone scrolling through instagram or whatever the fuck for 10 min in between sets.

This! I started visiting gym not long ago, so I can't tell so many things like you, but women with full makeup really annoy me, sometime I don't understand why they are there.

So here is an interesting one that I have noticed for years. We have a guy at our gym who only comes because his company pays for the membership. Very odd guy.

He doesn't work out, just uses the facility. He comes in the front door and heads straight to the back locker rooms to hit the toilet, shower, and dress for work.

Comes out of the shower unclothed, and proceeds to sit on the corner of a bench with nothing underneath him. Also always pulls the floor fan directly in front of him and cranks it up to the max. Sits there for awhile getting air dried, then dresses and leaves for work. Needless to say...I never use that bench to sit anything on.

And he is a huge guy (350+) that needs to exercise. You can hear him huffing and puffing just trying to breath as you are opening the locker room doors.

I asked one guy about it before who has spoken with him, and he said that the guy said "why pay for water and utilities at his place when he can come to the gym which is on the way to his job".????

There's a similar heavy set guy that comes to our gym. Probably in his 20's. I see him walking to the gym and brings a shit load of stuff with him including his laptop. He just hangs out and watches Netflix inside the gym. Granted, I'm pretty sure he's moderately autistic.

That's what I love about my gym. Hardly anyone touches the 100lb plates, and we have dumbbells that go to 150lbs.

Hopefully one day....I will be able to use them! 😁
