I wasn’t planning to address this topic until next week but today I was put over the edge. What put me over the edge? It was not the snowy commute I faced this morning. (Yes a lot of DC area people are livid over that).
It was walking into an empty gym to find this:
So I spent 20 minutes this morning CLEANING UP AFTER OTHER PEOPLE! I was pissed. It is so convent having a gym, if somewhat small, downstairs in my building. However, the unending inability of others to clean up after themselves and their workouts might just drive me to get a gym membership.
I was under the impression that putting away your toys was something we all learned in Kindergarten. Apparently, I was wrong. A few people seem to have also missed the memo on sharing. After my brief stint as a maid, I went to hop on the exercise machine of my choice to find this had appeared:
I ditched the idea of the elliptical and decided to run out my feelings on the treadmill.
So please, show some respect to the shared space that is your gym put away your toys, share with others, and just use logic. Your house can be as messy as you like… mine certainly is, but no one else has to deal with it but me. And if you happen to recognize this gym and you are the one leaving stuff laying about everywhere beware my wrath.
Keep it clean & fierce!
