Reddit has again provided a source of entertaining reading. Recently on a popular subthread, a Redditor, told the story about a recent visit to the gym.
The Family Guy
The Redditor described himself as a family man, and after work, he comes home and helps by putting his kids to bed.
Regular Workouts at the Gym
He explained that he hit the gym after the kids are asleep, usually around 8.30 pm.
One Sweaty Evening
One evening, he was about 25 minutes into the session and had just finished the stationary cycle.
He was sweating heavily (he likes to push himself) and was headed to the gym’s free weight room.
Grunting and Groaning
Usually, by this point in the evening, he has the place to himself, allowing him “to grunt and groan in peace.”
An Attractive Gym Buddy
That evening was different; he wasn’t alone.
There was an attractive lady with her yoga mat and a phone stand – he assumed that she was making a video of herself.
Takes off His Wedding Ring
He thought nothing of it and proceeded with his normal routine of bent-over rows.
But like he always did, he took off his wedding ring.
A Tap on the Shoulder
He explained, “If I try to wear it, it digs into my hand and makes things most unpleasant.”
So he starts “grunting out reps” when he feels a tap on his shoulder.
A Menacing Glare
He looks around, and it’s the lady.
She’s got a menacing glare and is brandishing her iPhone, and she’s not happy. He took out his earbuds and asked what the problem was.
He explained that the exchange that followed was similar to this:
“Me: Hey, what’s up?
New Girl: You’re disgusting.”
Me: “Excuse me?
New Girl: You saw me in here and took off your ring, planning on chatting me up?”
(This is a little paraphrased, she swore a little too.)
A Shocked Reaction
New Girl: You’re gross.
He Ignores Her
He ignores her and gets on with the routine, putting his earbuds back in.
From the corner of his eye, he sees that the lady has gone to the other side of the gym, toward the exit.
Blasted With Liquid
What happened next was bizarre.
He explained, “I’m rowing away and out of nowhere I’m blasted with a cascade of liquid which leads me to drop my dumbbell and spin around to see what’s going on.
There’s new girl with her recently emptied pink water bottle screaming at me, (I’m assuming for being gross, it was unclear as I had my buds in still.)”
She Storms Off
The lady storms off, and the Redditor is left with a wet shirt which strangely smells like vodka.
After the exchange, he headed home to explain why his shirt smelled like he had been drinking at a club.
Why Did She Go Bananas?
He added, “I took off my wedding ring at the gym, causing a lady I’ve never met before to go bananas.”
Redditors came out in force to support him.
Musaraj replied, “File a complaint with a gym, get her banned. You didn’t ’cause a lady to go bananas.’ You were assaulted.”
Feeling_Ad_2354 added, “People are strange. It’s very common to not wear your ring to lift. I never wear mine to the gym at all because it gives me callouses and I also don’t want to scratch it. You didn’t do anything wrong – she did. Sorry someone was so rude to you.”
