A few months ago I joined a new gym.
It’s a Mom & Pop operation. I joined because it’s 24hrs and it’s close by the house.
When I signed up, the owner showed me around the place. Halfway through his presentation, he gets this crazy look in his eye and says:
Him: “So are you serious about working out?”
Me: “Yeah, sure”
Him: “Don’t Bull shit me man! ARE YOU SERIOUS ABOUT WORKING OUT?”
Me: “Yeah, dude” (jeesh)
So over the past few months we’ve made small friendly chit chat. He’s never too busy to spot you when you need it. Very helpful guy.
So today, I went for a short workout. As I’m heading for the door, the owner is right there at the counter thumbing through the newspaper. this was our exchange:
[Me on my way out the door]
Him: “Hey, where you going?”
Me: “Um, heading home”
Him: [looking annoyed] “You were only here for a half hour.”
Me: “Yeah, well, I’m a little tired today I was gonna…”
Him; “Yeah, why don’t you go over there and do a couple of sets of stomach crunches before you leave”
Then I went and F’n did it!! :smack:
On the surface this guy seems like a real asshole. But for some reason I can’t help but like the guy. I guess it’s because you can tell the guy really cares about his customers despite having a weird way of showing it.
Having said that, I still think the guy is slightly off his rocker.
