and you can stop laughing now.
Part of my depression is my gym. I use to love to go to the gym.
Really I did.
Not so much today
It was benign enough as she chatted on her phone on the elliptical but she might as well be taking her fingernails across a chalkboard.
I was trying to get back into the gym and the incessant one sided conversation I was privy to was distracting and most of all a solid reminder my life is not so great.
Oh! I get it ...trust me ...her life may not be great but it was everything I couldn't do which involved sweating and looking beautiful at the same time.
If I ever get captured the best way to torture me is to have someone talking incessantly on their phone while on an elliptical ...I swear I am getting an involuntary eye twitch just typing about it.
This must be a thing since when I searched "Woman at gym on cell phone" nearly a million links were available.
Then there is the whole "taking pictures at the gym" thing. I can not trust another woman in the locker with her cell phone.
Let me repeat that for you:
I CAN NOT TRUST ANOTHER WOMAN IN THE LOCKER WITH HER CELL PHONE.
I realize that may sound extreme but it is the reality.
When I joined Retro Fitness there was this woman whom for all intent and purpose was to communicate an urgent message but what was odd about it was after a 90 minute workout the woman who I think paid her gym membership was still there on the phone.
It was very benign because she is a nurse and her family is in the military with lots of drama. So I was able to dismiss that.
It was when the younger women came in and were chatting with their friends while people ( or me ) was changing in the locker room.
It was a point of contention for me and I eventually left Retro Fitness after a lot things.
Now I go to Planet Fitness and this woman talks on the phone like it is the air she needs to breath.
I do not get it. I may one day be guilty of carrying on a conversation on the phone on an elliptical but it will most likely be because I am at home alone.
