Life has its little annoyances and the gym is no different. My biggest pet peeve isn't when someone forgets to wipe his sweat off the cross trainer or bench, though I admit, that's pretty gross. No, it seems I have the uncanny knack of choosing a locker that is always being blocked by another guy. Someone getting dressed or worse yet, the guy who thinks that the locker room is his personal social club. Case in point, I get to the gym very early. No one's there. I stash my stuff in a locker, get changed and head out to do my weight training. 40 minutes later, I come back to retrieve my Ipod to do cardio and a half-naked guy is sitting on the bench in front of my locker, his stuff spread all over the place, eating a pastry and sipping his Starbucks and talking about his golf handicap to the other guy down the aisle. He doesn't move or acknowledge that I wish to get into my locker. He just sits there flapping his gums. Anyway, I go do cardio and come back and guess what? The guy is back (or did he ever leave?) and now I need to shower and get the heck out of there to head to work and I just know it's going to be a pain in the ass doing it. So tell me, what's your pet peeve?
