So, this happened about 4-5 years ago, nothing bad happened but I would like to share my experience, since it was kinda funny.
So I’m a 24 year old guy, just wanting to keep in shape, so I had purchased a membership at a gym in my home town, to which I still currently live in.
Nothing special, just around $50 bucks a month and I get to use some extra perks like using the Sauna whenever I wanted. An’ the best part was, it was open 24 hours, so if I had some anger to blow off in the middle of the night, I could just jog there, easily.
Anyway, to the story.
I was about 20-19 at the time, and I was just getting in the rhythm of things, with my workout regimen, and I was just leaving the locker room, when a kind old man, looking quite well for his age, came up and asked me if I could show him how to work one of the machines that worked the abs. (I can’t remember which one exactly, but it doesn’t matter at this point.)
I was pretty well built at the time, with going to the gym everyday keeping myself in shape, so I just thought he asked if I could help, because I looked like I knew what I was doing.
I was dead wrong.
After I showed him how to work it, and how he could get the best use out of it, and when I finished, I asked him why he came to me instead of an employee of the gym.
He looked to me, his eyes wide with shock, and said the follow, barely able to contain his laughter…
OM: “I honestly thought you were an employee of the gym. Since you’re wearing the same color clothes as them.”
The gym uniform for the employees was a red polo shirt, with black dress pants. I had worn a red T-Shirt with black sweatpants, to the gym that day.
He and I had a good laugh after that, an’ I went on to do my normal workout routine.
Ever since then, I haven’t seen the old guy during my workouts. An’ I never will, since I mainly do kickboxing at home, and canceled my membership to that gym.
Thanks for reading.
