2. Splat on the treadmill

“I was in between work and going to class and knew I had to have a snack before I subjected myself to the 90-minute Bikram sequence. I had a hard boiled egg. What a mistake. Poor guy behind me. I couldn’t stop accelerating and I was so bloated! Not to mention the class taught with just the teacher speaking along, with no music. Had to pick the time to throttle when some movement going on with some noise! Never again!”

I had to run out of the room lest I laugh at him and be torn in half by his inevitable Viking rage.”

For about 30 minutes, everyone kept watching and then look away and i had no idea what was going on i had come to find out the crotch in my shorts had been ripped open the best part was i was four stories up and about to reach the top when I came to this realization because the harness was rubbing against the inside of my leg.

“I once made a man cry at the gym because I was lifting heavier weights than him. He looked skinny and we happened to be doing the same exercise side by side in the free weights section. He kept looking at me and finally dropped his dumbbells on the floor and sobbed how unfair it was that I could lift more than him. He then literally stormed out of the gym.”
