I've been going to the gym a lot this year and obviously you start to see the same people there... So I always feel obligated to say something to the familiar faces but its always awkward... Seriously, what do you say??? Man you lookin buff!!! (when really you seen this guy yesterday and they look the same)... I came up with a conclusion if you are having this same problem... Just smile and nod your head and keep walking... This is the way I look at it... I'm not there talk and catch up with people I've never met...(I don't mean that in a bad way, because anywhere else I will talk to anyone) I'm there to get workout in and get out... Plain and simple...

Anywho...

Let me get to the point of why I have the picture above me... I had an experience this past Monday where this small cacausian kid was doing bench press... He had to still be in high school... So he had on some gym shoes that were worn out striped socks pulled all the way up to his knees... Gym shorts that was pulled almost up to his chest... White plain dirty t-shirt tucked in which looked like he wore it for days... Harry potter lookin glasses... Anyways... So I was right next to him benching when I heard this grunting and I was like what the... I immediately looked at this kid next to me and the bar with about 25 pds on each side dropped it on himself... I obviously ran and picked the weight up off of him and asked him if he needed a spot... He said no quickly, got up and ran off... I know some people may find me scary but I hope I didn't hurt the kids feelings... So I'm here to say sorry to that kid... :)

YOur so funny...I thought that was funny but my husband pointed out that he was once like that kid Lol. He's actually planning to work out alot more. Your just a kind hearted teddy bear...but let's face it you live in Utah and a lot of Utahns are super sheltered. So yes, I'm sure you did scare him away:O=)
