DOUCHEBAG AT GYM

    So today at the gym, I was going about my normal routine. Headphones in, moving from exercise to exercise - minding my own business. I grab one of those ab balls (forget what they're called) and walk over to the cable station to sit the ball down in the middle and do flys on it. I bounce the ball a few times as I approach the cable station. All the sudden, I see a dude who I've seen before yelling at me and throwing his arms out. I couldn't hear him cuz my headphones were in. As I take them out, he's yelling at me, swearing at me and telling me to stop trying to piss him off, bouncing the ball. icon_neutral.gif

    I'm just standing there thinking, "wtf?!" Then the guy working at the gym comes out of the changeroom because he heard the douche screaming. He's like "take it easy, man". Him and I exchange glances thinking "wtf is wrong with that dude?" Anyway, so by the end of my session, I talk to the worker dude. He tells me "That guy is fucked. He apparently had a bad day. Said he was sorry for blowing up like that." I said to him "I don't give a fuck if he had a bad day, he was a total douche. He could be a crazy fuck and bring a knife next time, who knows. And he should've apologized to ME."

    What would you if you were me? Should I report him to the manager? Ignore him? Cuz I know I'll see him again. Who knows what'll set him off next time. And this dude looks like someone you don't wanna fuck with - big, covered in tatts, obviously has a short fuse....

    Wait for him outside the gym and ask him face to face whats wrong with him. Act threatening so either he apologizes or will learn not to fuck with you again.

    I'd tell the manager and tell I want my membership refunded because I do not feel the place is safe and then I'd find a new gym

    To be honest, I hate it when people bounce those Swiss balls. It's annoying.

    Report him to the manager would be the best course of action. What a nut!

    If it bothered him so much, he could've asked me to stop nicely. He was extremely loud, rude and aggressive. I literally thought we were gonna scrap it out. And people do more things at the gym that are louder - like boxing (there's a bag right there), jump rope etc.

    There are crazy people everywhere. Can't really avoid it. But now you know that bouncing the Swiss ball is annoying. So don't do it. Otherwise that guy might flip out again. icon_lol.gif

    If the guy is loud, rude and aggressive and you go crying to the manager he will think you're a pussy. Go and fix things with him face to face.

    You're in a bad situation.
    Before I confront people at the gym, I always stop and remind myself that I'll have to see them every day for who knows how long after that.
    Management should have definitely booted him out after that but they didn't so you're stuck. Don't complain to management or you're going to feel like a douche too, especially if they do nothing.
    I won't tell the story but there are two guys at the gym I'm very angry with. My only satisfaction is to be passive aggressive with them and turn away when I pass them.
    (You see, I pretty much nod to everybody I pass at the gym so that'll REALLY teach them.)
    And don't feel threatened. That guy should be embarrassed to be yelling like a lunatic. It's pretty funny that you couldn't even hear them.

    Right. That's good too. Walk up to him, say HEY DUMBASS, I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU, and poke him in the chest with your finger. Tell him you just fucked his mother and now you want to fuck him too. Tell him you want to see him outside NOW so you can kick his ass all around the parking lot... twice.
    If he gets scared and starts to apologize, call him a pussy and slap his face.
    Throw your jockstrap at his feet and tell him to pick it up. When he bends down to get it, knee him in the face. Then keep bouncing the Swiss ball on his head until he regains consciousness.
    When the police arrived, just say WELL HE STARTED IT and you'll be OK. That's one of the "man rules" at the gym.
    Make sure to have a buddy video tape this and put it on YouTube. I'm counting on you.

    owl_bundy saidaren't you one of the members in here that brags about being "masculine"? so handle it the "masculine" way. icon_wink.gif

    That's actually a good idea but you have to have some balls for that.
    (I forgot about the magnanimous "be a man" technique.)
    I've had a few stupid conflicts like that at the gym and the very best thing to do is to walk by him and pay him a quick compliment.
    Something like, "Man, I wish I could lift that much weight."
    You're not looking to get even. You're a man. You don't even remember what happened because it had so little effect on you.
    The only scary part about this idea is that he might actually start talking back to you and you probably don't want to be anywhere near the douche.

    Lots of people do that, if people find it annoying, then it is because they have mental issues with the noise it makes. It would be one thing if a person was running around the entire gym bouncing it, but it is quite another when you are just moving from one area to another. Girls, carry balls from one place to another, men bounce them, because they are used to playing basket ball.

    Never know. Could be the match made in heaven.

    owl_bundy saidall jokes aside, it sounds like hellass can't fight. not that it's a bad thing BUT it's a shocker though for a masculine guy to say that.
    mr. ha, you sure people can't tell that you're gay?

    Masculine men don't fight. Children fight.

    But it's not a basketball. And it's not a basketball court.

    I would've laughed at him

    Irreverence is quite effective and occassionally charming.

    You assume quite a lot about people you know nothing about. I've never bragged about being masculine. I've said that people don't assume I'm gay. So what? This has nothing to do with the douche at the gym. Do I know how to fight? Of course I do. And I'm bigger than this guy. The thing is, I've never HAD to fight because I'm actually a really nice guy and not confrontational. I'll just do what I always do - ignore him and everyone else. That gym is full of crazies anyway. I've gotten used to it.
