    I've heard some strange things that have happened to friends of mine at their gym.. or when visiting a gym or health club. I really hadn't had one that I would call "really strange" until last night.

    Typical night, dressed in the locker room, then stepped back to the bathroom area (and I typically leave my empty water bottle and sweat towel by the sinks). When I came back, someone had stolen my water bottle. I mean it was an empty cheap water bottle from the grocery store! I did my workout, then when I was finished, before dressing, I stepped back to the bathroom, leaving a fresh sweat towel by the sinks again along with half a bottle of water I actually got from a trainer friend of mine. When I came out the empty water bottle that had been ripped off early had reappeared on my towel along with the half bottle of water I had been using. SOOO nice of the thief to return my empty bottle to me once they had used it! Strange.

    What have you guys experienced?

    The water thing isn't only happening at the gymn ..
    As much as it sounds weird , i have had passengers stealing my water bottle from the galley !
    It happened more than once , i ever caught one on the spot , i let him go back to his seat with it , took a new one from the galley's refrigerator , walked to his assigned seat , picked mine off his tray table and placed the new one without mentioning anything ..icon_smile.gif

    He blows my mind , that someone would steal a already opened bottle of water , as he could just stop by the galley or summon us to his seat to get one icon_eek.gif

    A member headed to the shower asked me, a total stranger and the only other person in the locker room, to watch his stuff (including his wallet and cell phone) which he'd removed, along with both his clean and stinky sweaty dirty laundry, from his locked locker to drape across two of the six benches in the locker room like it was his own house. He said he'd only be a couple minutes and took TEN. I was stuck doing it because if I'd have said no with no other witnesses and if any of his stuff went missing who'd have been prime suspect? ME.

    Turns out he's a real weirdo, a butch powerlifter dad who has been described by staff as "disgusting" - spitting chewing tobacco during crowded spin class, for example. But I belong to a franchise gym (NYSC) and they can't do ANYTHING.

    The nice thing about my old gym, Bev Francis Powerhouse, were those franchises rules which allowed its owner to write a check for the balance of whoever's membership and kick that member out for any reason which he'd do if anyone gave him any lip about re-racking weights. I'd still belong but I preferred a NYSC 4 minutes from my house instead of a Powerhouse 25 minutes away. THAT dedicated I'm not.

    Leaving gym and getting a message on Grindr from a blank profile saying that he was horny after watching me change. That's why I slide on my boxer briefs underneath my towel.

    About 5 years ago, I was having a shower and somebody stole my towel. I asked everyone if somebody took it, but nobody answered. I had to put on my clothes being totally wet. I asked to the receptionist if had they found any towel at the men's locker room, that day and the next day, but they didn't have any. I never recovered my towel.

    It was just a towel in the end, nothing important. I laugh every time I remember this, but at that moment was really embarrassing.

    One gym I belonged to had a laundry room with 6 washers & 6 dryers. You could wash your stuff while you got in a work out. One day I'm washing stuff, and then drying it. I put a few coins in the dryer to start it, but knew I needed more so I went to the desk for more coins. I came right back to put in a few more coins, and noticed all my stuff was wadded up in a ball - still wet of course - laying on the counter. In my dryer was the laundry of some other guy - getting dry on my coins. What the F??? I hadn't been gone 5 minutes. All the other dryers were open and available.

    I did what I had to do: I took his crap out of my dryer and put it into the laundry sink there, and turned the water on it. Then, I put my stuff back in my dryer and added some more coins. I went back out to the free weights area and kept working out. I watched the door to the laundry room while I worked out. You guessed it. In walks a guy and he heads straight for my dryer. Trouble was, his clothes were no longer in it. He then sees his crap in the laundry sink - sopping wet. He wasn't happy. Asshole. I asked him wtf he thought he was trying to pull.........all to save a buck in coins? He wanted to fight & asked me if I wanted to take it outside. I said "Yeah. Let's do this - right now!" He put his head down, grabbed his wet crap and left.

    The best story i can remember was a gym that had a jacuzzi and the guys who were not sure of their sexuality would spa with me then take a shower next to me....I loved that ambiguity back then- they always eventually came out- I love a confused young guy!!

    I saw a guy shaving his pubes in the shower stall facing outward for everyone to see. (He must be an exhibitionist.)

    Another time, a guy signaled for me to follow him from the shower area to the sauna. Then he grabbed my dick and tried to give me a bj. I had to push him off because it would be totally inappropriate if someone walked in on us. icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    about a month ago I walked into the bathroom and and hear the unmistakable sound of electric clippers coming from one of the stalls. I don't know whether they were battery operated or he found an outlet in there but I can pretty much guess that he was with out a doubt clipping his pubes.

    If thats nots weird enough he was humming to himself while he did it, stopping periodically to admire his work before starting again.

    A week prior i walked into one of the shower stalls to find a huge pile of pubes as well.

    Do that shit at home.

    As far as things being stolen/gone missing. Stalkers take 'trophies'. Particularly the ones you are more or less unaware of or at least their attraction (obsession) to you. You don't need to be a celebrity/public person to have your own personal stalker (or 2). Just being a hunky guy (or terribly average) at the gym or in a sports league can start a fixation that escalates. What better place than a gym or locker room where they can get close to you and observe you at close range. Then the opportunity presents itself to have a piece of you (memento) for themselves and they swipe your stuff.

    Then there are the jilted lovers and ex BF type stalkers. Those you need to arm yourself for and get restraining orders against.

    If you have any friends who are cops or defense attorneys they can tell you lots of stories about this and point out how oblivious we are to this in our lives.

    People are just nuts. I get that when guys get heavy feelings for someone close to them that logic goes out the window, but I don't get how a guy can get so obsessed with someone they barely know.

    My usual gym was closed one Sunday so I went to another gym in the same franchise. When I changed out of my street clothes into my gym clothes a guy sitting in the locker room started yelling at me. He said I can't be naked in there. He was furious. Since I was at this gym for the first time, for a second I thought he might be right -- that they had some weird policy. But I have a bit of temper so things got pretty confrontational. The manager had to intervene -- his lucky day! The guy was totally nuts, of course. He said to the manager, "It's against my religion to see a naked man. Guys are supposed to change in the shower." He had a Bible on the dressing bench. I loved how the manager said, "Religions don't set policy at this gym," as if that was not something commonly understood. A day later, the general manager called me with an effusive apology. Just another crazy day in New York. Later I thought that the guy must have been an intense closet case just sitting there waiting to see a naked guy, paging through the Bible, then getting angry when he actually saw one...icon_rolleyes.gif

    One random work night, I hit the gym's locker room to change clothes. My mind was numb, and it seemed everything I was doing was from pure muscle memory...until I attempted to step over a bench. My foot got caught, and I fell completely to the floor. So embarrassing!

    I instantly became wide awake and well aware of everything...including a locker room full of guys who seemed to be droned out just as I was. I wonder if anyone even noticed me! lol

    about 20 years ago, my stainless steel cockring fell out of my gym bag and fell onto the tile floor of the locker room. CLANG!! it bounced twice, then rolled about 15' to the other side of the room. it came to rest about a foot from this really nice looking guy. without missing a beat, he reached down, picked it up, smiled and winked as he handed it to me. and nary a word was exchanged. until a few weeks later when he introduced himself to me and said, 'if you don't find it forward, i have something for you.' he handed me a rubber cockring. again the smile and the wink. 'this will be sound proof.'
    sheesh.

    I sometimes go to the former Gold's Gym near the Castro in SF. Everything mentioned above and more goes on there. The steamroom was permanently closed before I joined because of too much sex happening in it. I used to see similar things at when I was a YMCA member also ... they had to put up signs in the showers and steamroom telling people not to have sex or they would lose their memberships.

    A few months ago I left my gym towel by my locker. I use these microfiber kitchen towels and it was pretty wet with sweat. When coming back from peeing, it was gone.

    I came to the conclusion that I must have an admirer. It was such a silly thing to steal. I just hope my stalker was cute.
