“My pet peev is when some weakling asshole is accross the gym talking to some other weakling asshole , but comes running over as soon as I start to change the weight to tell me he is useing the machines. I try to be understanding, but if I have already pulled off his 2 , 25lb plates and replaced them with my 4 , 45lb plates he is SOL for 2 reasons. #1 he should STFU and lift. Its a gym, not a sewing circle. #2 if he lifted grown up weights he wouldnt be bitching because I put more weight on. The same thing goes for all of the Justin Timberlake look alikes in the gym. Just because you have a 6 pack doesnt mean you are strong. You are still a 90lb pussy and I know girls who lift heavier weight than you. STOP FLEXING IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR!! It is pathetic and just makes people laugh at you.”
This reminds me of one of my peeves and the following may not appy to BURNER although the weakling = asshole line of thought bugs me. Some people are weak, some people are strong, assholes come in a variety of sizes.
So I am at the gym and make my way to the inclined leg press machine. The muscular and fit looking guy working there has about 400 pounds on and is making a big production out what he’s pressing.
I ask to work in and with a sneer he asks if he should take some weight off. I replied that I usually warmed up with the weight he had there…
I set the gym record that day by pressing nearly 600% of my weight.
So guess what pisses me off?
People who think that because a person doesn’t look like they have steroid-o’s for breakfast that they are somehow inferior.
Size isn’t everything and yes… wipe the seat when you’re finished.
