Reddit has again provided a source of entertaining reading. Recently on a subthread, a happily married man told the story about a recent visit to the gym.
He’s a Family Man
The Redditor described himself as a family man. After work, he comes home and helps by putting his kids to bed.
He explained that he hits the gym after they’re asleep, usually around 8.30 pm.
Gym Session Well-Underway
One evening, he was about 25 minutes into the session and had just finished the stationary cycle.
“Grunt and Groan in Peace”
He was sweating heavily (he likes to push himself) and was headed to the gym’s free weight room.
Usually, by this point in the evening, he has the place to himself, allowing him “to grunt and groan in peace.”
Yoga Mat Lady
That evening was different; he wasn’t alone. There was a lady with her yoga mat and a phone stand. He assumed that she was making a video of herself.
He Carried on Regardless
He thought nothing of it and proceeded with his normal routine of bent-over rows. But like he always did, he took off his wedding ring.
Wearing It Hurts
He explained, “If I try to wear it, it digs into my hand and makes things most unpleasant.” So he starts “grunting out reps” when he feels a tap on his shoulder.
She’s Not Happy
He looks around, and it’s the lady. She’s got a menacing glare and is brandishing her iPhone, and she’s not happy.
Our friend took out his earbuds and asked what the problem was.
He explained that the exchange that followed was similar to this:
“Me: Hey, what’s up?
New Girl: You’re disgusting.
Me: Excuse me?
NG: You saw me in here and took off your ring, planning on chatting me up? (This is a little paraphrased, she swore a little, too, and I wasn’t taking perfect notes)
NG: You’re gross.
He Ignores Her
He ignores her and gets on with the routine, putting his earbuds back in.
He Thinks She’s Gone
From the corner of his eye, he sees that the lady has gone to the other side of the gym, toward the exit.
She Throws Liquid at Him
What happened next was bizarre. He explained, “I’m rowing away and out of no where I’m blasted with a cascade of liquid which leads me to drop my dumbbell and spin around to see what’s going on.
She’s Now Screaming at Him
There’s stood the new girl with her recently emptied pink bottle, screaming at him.
He Smelled Like He Had Been Drinking
The lady storms off, and the Redditor was left with a wet shirt that smelled like vodka.
After the exchange, he headed home to explain why his shirt smelled like he had been drinking at a club.
He added, “TL;DR I took off my wedding ring at the gym, causing a lady I’ve never met before to go bananas.”
