So………. I enter the cardio room at my gym (the cardio room is a private room in the gym consisting of 17 cardio machines including: ellipticals, treadmills, and exercise bikes. It also contains a 9ft screen and a projector that plays movies continuously), and the first thing that noticed was the absence of sound…..
I glanced around the room at the 7 individuals that were working out on their machines, staring at the screen intently, as if they had some sort of telepathic connection with the projector. Maybe they were lip reading…… Not one budged to get assistance. They did squat (figuratively…. and maybe literally)!!! I was instantly irritated.
Upon further investigation, I realized that every one of them was a guy! What does this say about our gender…. Too prideful to be the one to say “hey, I’ll go and get some assistance!” I instantly thought of a guy sitting on a sofa “Al Bundy” style watching a show that he doesn’t necessarily like due to the fact that he can’t find the remote control. And to get up and change it manually would take an act of God!! Well at least they were working out, I guess!
So I cleaned my machine, laid my belongings down and politely went to get assistance! Once I began my workout, with sound, I pulled my phone out to vent the way I know best!!! Woosah…. Tgif people!
