Leezer's post about gym people has forced me to post my gym experience from today. I think every gym has at least one grunter. The guy who needs people to know he's lifting a lot of weight. The guy who grunts so loud that even Franklin doesn't drown out the noise. Today I ran across the Grunter. Except, he wasn't lifting. And, actually, he wasn't clothed. He was grunting in the shower. My gym has 5 showers. Each with their own shower curtain to maintain privacy. So, I was finishing up with my shower when Grunter really started getting into it in the shower next to mine. I started to feel uncomfortable so I hurried and finished so I could go back to my locker. As I got out of the shower I noticed Grunter was still taking his shower and he didn't feel the need to close his shower curtain. Besides his love of being heard grunting he apparently loves being seen showering as well. Anyway, I run back to my locker and a few minutes later, of course, Grunter sits his naked, untowel-using ass next to me. As I throw on whatever garments of clean or dirty clothes I have available to get out of there as fast as possible he continues to rub himself and grunt and moan as loud as possible. It was truly, utterly, visual, mentally, and hearingly (if that's a word) disgusting.

Glad I haven't encountered any of those types when I went to the gym.

Yeah, being a somewhat regular at my college gym, I run into those goofs alot. Some 20 year old tool who thinks he's god, grunting and grolwing (not allowed - the sign even says so) then proceeds to drop the weights onto the ground from about 1.5 feet in the air - also not allowed - can be REALLY annoying and super distracting. My big annoyance of the gym though, is that all the 'older' women who work out there feel it's completely okay to just walk around with their personal junk hanging out all over their place. I guess they figure, "Hey, I'm like 60, I've had 3 kids, I've been married for decaded, I don't give a shit what anyone thinks of my fat, rolly-polly, dimpled ass and unkept you-know-what" EW, ew, ew... that's all I have to say. lol Thanks for allowing me to get that off my chest, been bothering me for some time it would seem, haha!

I was kind of hoping for a "happy ending" there.

I crack myself up.

Timophil:

Was the grunter actually playing with himself or do you think he's just so out of shape that he has to heave-ho every time he lifts the soap higher than his waist?

And I agree 100% with Beach Ball - it's always the really old women that are the exhibitionists. When I belonged to the YMCA, there were no shower curtains or stalls, just one room with a lot of shower heads. I saw a woman stand with one foot on the floor, the other on a chair while she scrubbed the living hell out of her hootchie-coo with soap and a washcloth. Did I REALLY need to see that???

That is disgusting!!! We have our own stalls and curtains thankfully (unlike the mens room, that's so odd) but it's as soon as they come outta there its like, "watch out cause here comes miss thang" *barf*

I think the grunter has tourettes, and he can't control it. Don't you feel bad now? That, or he was whacking off. But, if you can't jack off in the gym shower, where can you?

Ewww. I am truly, utterly, visually, mentally and hearingly disturbed.

Oh great One said...

Eww. I need a shower now.

Softball Slut said...

I am a grunter when I play ball. Like when I serve the volleyball I grunt. I am known for it. But lifting weights? No! I do the wierd breathy thing though and I close my eyes and breath through my mouth loud. I cant help it. It burns. And I am fat and out of shape, and I definately dont want anyone paying attention to me crying over the 10lb weights, that is for sure.

TinaBellina said...

Hi. It's Popo.

I changed accounts. To protect my identity. And possibly YOURS.

Conti said...

I don't know Tim, it sounds kind of sexy.

Egan said...

Tim, this guy sounds like a prize. Is he also the barbell dropper? You know the guy who slams the weights down or conveniently allows them to make the loud clinging noise.

I love the gym stories. So much weird stuff to report.
