    Quite frankly, I don't understand why some guys seem to monopolize the benches. If lockers are available, why can't you just leave your crap IN the locker and leave the bench for those who need to get dressed?!.... Leaving your shit on the bench is simply downright rude.

    Haha, I agree, this is a bit of a nuisance. There's no need to lay half your locker across the benches as if its your living room table. It's not a huge issue at my gym though because the locker rooms are tight to begin with, so I think there's mutual understanding to be cognizant of space.

    PS: You're friggen hot! I LOVE the fur!!

    I'm glad someone else said it. icon_wink.gif

    It does kind of astound me that some guys at my gym take up an entire bench with their stuff. And that it doesn't even occur to some of them that when someone with a locker near theirs is changing, they should at least allow that person a little room on the bench.

    Some of them do realize and move some of their stuff out of the way but it's amazing how often they're totally oblivious.

    haha. ouch.

    can i tell you the best way to snap a towel?

    get the tip slightly wet or damp ... wait this sounds like something else icon_razz.gif

    anyways, slightly moisten the end of the towel, roll it at an angle, then twist the end and then you'll get a satisfying 'snap' when you whip the towel.

    them towel whips leave a nice red welt!

    I KNOW!!!! And dont you hate it when there could only be two of you in the locker room including yourself but when you go to get in your locker his is right next to yours!!! Murpheys law I guess.

    I like my space but I dont crowd everyone elses either.

    Luckily I have never run into this problems in gyms. Though I have run into the problem of being with the only other person in a locker room and their locker right next to mine. But if they are hot (usually are) I don't mind.
    Though if I go into a gym and the lockers are full I usually put my stuff on top of a locker so it's out of the way and easy to grab when I need it. And it's no disadvantage to me since I'm tall.

    Well the gyms I go to usually have plenty of space anyway. I usually store my stuff in the locker - mainly cause I had a rather expensive pair of Nike's stolen one time! But when showering just leave everything in my bag on the bench.

    To be honest I have only had this problem in the "boutique" gyms cause they conserve on space too much!!!
