Are We Going to Have to Throw Down?

Ok, let me just preface this story by saying that I'm not usually a confrontational person, but in the gym today I seriously wanted to throw down with a 70 year old lady.

So..I was in the women's lockeroom. I'd already taken my shower and done my make-up, I just had my hair left to do. As I'm drying my hair, this old lady comes out of either the shower or sauna and sits on the bench behind me. She proceeds to watch me blow-dry my hair for about ten minutes, gets up and disappears for about 10 more minutes. By the time she gets back I'm straightening my hair. She sits back down on the bench right behind me and starts staring at me doing my hair yet again. Can I just add that the whole rest of the bench she's sitting on is empty? Why she chose to sit right behind me I have no idea. As I'm spraying my hair and then straightening it she keeps shaking her head and acting like she's annoyed.

I have no idea what her issue was, but after 10 minutes of that I was ready to turn around and ask her what her problem was. I don't think it was that I was using the plug-ins, because there are at least 2 if not 3 other plug-ins in the lockeroom she could have used and in close proximity.

Did I forget to mention that the entire time this was going on she was sitting naked on the bench so I could see her saggy boobs and who-ha? ::shudders::

She does that again and we're throwing down!

Wow... I would have been really annoyed.

Haha. I would've been annoyed too. My hubby has had similar issues with the old men at the Y.

Charity said...

Wow, maybe you should buy her a present, a robe, and give it to her next time?

JG said...

Oh my word. Are you sure she wasn't...confused...about something?

Kayla said...

I agree with LG. That sounds like a rather um... lost... woman. Yikes. Old baby boobs. ::shudder::

MG said...

Oh my word! That is strange!

Patience said...

Eww..what a gross way to start your day. I prolly would have said something only because I hate feeling like I did something wrong when I know I didn't.

Julie said...

Oh man! That would be weird...lol

loquita said...

Sarah Ann said...

SS said...

Aside from your being gawked at, let me tell you about the issues I have with benches at the gym for this very reason... I've almost fallen flat on my face because my only other option was putting my hand on the bench to catch myself. ::gag::

Tasha said...

Very odd and pretty gross too! Ewwww saggy boobs!

Dana said...

I'm never sitting on the benches in that gym again.

Abbie said...

That's weird! I wonder what her deal was?!

Honey said...

Gross! Hope she doesn't come back.

Mrs.Olson said...

That is SO CRAZY ! You should mess with her and do your hair..naked. I dont have the guts to do that but it might make her leave you alone! Those crazy old ladies.

Were you at the post gym?? I find that they are the weirdest there. When we were in Virginia the women would parade around like that, go into the sauna/steamroom completely naked and I would have to leave. There would be signs stating that they need to at least have a towel on. I also love the ones that would groom themselves...like shampooing their hair in the steam room or applying baby oil in the sauna/steam room.

Sorry you had to live through that. Now I just flat out tell them to take it elsewhere and I go and tell the MWR employees and reporting it on ICE.

Lisa said...

Ugh! I got creeped out just reading about it! I wonder what her deal was?

And I HATE HATE HATE naked people in locker rooms. I understand you have to be naked to get dressed after showering, but do you have to walk around totally naked??? UGH!

Young Mom/Wife said...

Oh gross!!! She didn't bother to at least put on some undies during that 10 minutes she was gone?! I really hope you never have a run in with her again...

I think after about 3 mins, I would have turned around and asked her to either leave or put on some clothing.

Mrs. Jetplane said...

OMG that's nasty...

Jessie said...

ahaha! You poor girl! That would have driven me CRAZY!
Maybe she was just jealous? Yes.. lets go ahead and think that. :)

K said...

Omg, I would have definitely been annoyed and VERY grossed out haha

Full of Heart said...

Maybe she was just fascinated by your beauty?
I'm always SO GROSSED OUT by people sitting nekid on the benches at the gym, do you NOT REALIZE how grooooooooooss those things are!?

Adam and Shanna Family Blog said...

sick! :) I love a good gym story though- there are SO many people at mine that are CRAZY!

ABW said...

Ewwwwwww....What is it with people like that???? I would have probably turned around and asked her if she'd like to cop a feel or something just to see her reaction. LOL
