Ugh. Disgusting.

Have you ever witnessed something so appalling, you couldn't believe it was happening before your eyes?

Well, it happened to me at the gym this morning.

I much prefer to be active outside in order to get in my workout, but sometimes you just need the gym. However, I find any and every excuse possible not to go.

Today, I found two more reasons.

First of all, I hopped on the Elliptical, and someone had placed their gum right on the screen. Really? Could you seriously not walk (literally) 2 feet to the trashcan? I ARE at the gym.

And then, the real doosie happened.

I walked over to grab a paper towel and sanitizer to clean my machine. As I was walking back, I noticed this man in his late fifties who was an odd orange-ish shade from tanning too much, and was wearing way too short of shorts.

Well, what really made him stand out is that he was feverishly getting his workout on with his body facing forward and his neck completely turned at a full 90 degree right angle.

I noticed he was very intensely staring at something. I turned to see what it was.

Of course it was this young, twenty-something gal who was wearing extremely tight black pants, and had an even tighter bum.

He was looking right at it. For a solid 2-3 minutes.

With his neck awkwardly craned and eyes glued to that bum. He had no shame in hiding it, either.

I was hoping so badly that he would fall off his machine.

Now that would be reason enough for me to hit the gym...

Ugh! I hate when guys do that! I've met men before who give me this slow uuuupppp . . . doooowwwwn . . . and uuuupppp again, RIGHT TO MY FACE, like it's a compliment or something! While I stand there like an idiot waiting for eye contact so I can say, "It's nice to meet you". It's like they're assessing a large cut of beef they're about to buy. Yuck.

I thoroughly appreciate the sight of an attractive, athletic person (male or female!) especially when they're using all those muscles. But a quick glance is quite enough!

Ew. That is so gross I'm having trouble putting my disgust into words. He obviously is still trying to be young and thinks that if he tries hard enough he'll get some young hot thing to do after he. Because you know, dating you granddaughter's friends is SO acceptable. I'm so sorry you had to witness this. Gag. I find that that is one perk to being a mil. spouse- there aren't any really old or really overweight people at military base gyms!

I think people with less than good social skills are prone to show them even more while at the gym! lol
