I go to an obnoxious gym. Suburban life at it's finest. 70 year old plastic ladies in teeny bikinis, $100,000 luxury cars parked across 3 spaces, and juicy infidelity gossip shared at the smoothie stand that gets immediately twisted in the locker room.
Yet, I have been there a lot. Because I need to be. And the bonus is that I hardly know anyone there, so it is worth it to me to go somewhere annoying if I can be anonymous.
Something I find very ironic at my gym are the parking lot wars. Members circle close spots like it is Black Friday at the mall. Aren't you there to work out? What is a few extra steps if you plan to do an hour on the treadmill?
Last week, I witnessed a blond in a Lexus SUV and a brunette in a Range Rover get into a bitch fight over a parking spot. Both had children under 3 in their fancy rides. Seriously, this isn't The Real Housewives of 24 Hour Gyms....move on....move on!
I laughed at how ridiculous the entire situation was and parked in the furthest spot possible. Then I walked right by the fight on my way in, so I could here the ridiculous rants of, "move your car because I was here FIIIIIIRRRSSSSTTTTT" to remind myself that people like this are morons and I never want to become one.
Ever since then, I have been parking far away when I visit anywhere with a huge parking lot.
I decided that the extra steps and avoiding drama are both positives.....but if you decide to get into a public fight...I will be gawking....I love me drama from afar.
