Playing violin on the deck of the Titanic

So I was happy to see the lights were still on at the gym and pleased that somehow water service has been restored as well.  However the manager was once again not present and the two employees present had definite “we don’t give a fck” aura about them.  Since yesterday I heard of at least four gym staff that had been “left go”, not surprisingly the woman that called the local Fox News station was one of them.

The official stance still is that corporate Retro is coming in however I have heard this disputed by now fired employees.  They said that they actually are certain that the corporate office is not going to do anything.  The gym is quickly falling into disarray.  Any paper towel or soap dispenser that runs empty is not refilled, they have no supplies to do so or money to buy more.  A number of employees or former employees have still not been paid the money owed to them either which is another surefire sign the ship is sinking rapidly.

I tried to ignore the rising seas around me and just did a decent shoulder/back session.  I talked with my bench press buddy about what we would do if the gym closes.  We both agreed our only alternative would be to go back to the absolutely miserable confines of Planet Fitness and just be pissed off everyday we walk in the door.
