This entry is much less about my exercise log and more about strange people. On my way to the gym I found myself behind a roughly 15 year old Toyota Camry with a badly peeling clear coat. The car and it’s two occupants were turning right as I was. As I sat there getting increasingly annoyed by the driver’s lack of understanding of the state’s right turn on red laws I did further observation of the vehicle.
On the deck behind the rear window there was a matching set of round pillows. They were brown velour with luxurious tassels hanging from the stitching. Why the deck of your old car would be viewed as the perfect spot for them is beyond my scope of understanding. I then spotted a classic pine tree air freshener hanging from the rear view mirror, a nice finishing touch. Even when the light did turn green, the old driver still pulled out at a snail’s pace, continually looking to his left at the stopped traffic, just in case someone decided to jack rabbit off the line I guess. As soon as I was clear of the turn I passed the lovely couple and gave them a big thumb’s up just for being so awesome.
The other awesome experience was when I hit the bathroom before leaving the gym. Now I have talked before about how odd some men’s behavior is at urinals. Well this guy covered the odd/gross points all in one package. So he was one of these males that feels the need to place his one hand high above his head on the wall when taking a leak, the other hand I assume is used for directional control. I never ever understood what this is supposed to accomplish or how a man would come to do this. Is it a tradition handed down from generation to generation?
The man then moved into the gross portion of the experience. He did the spit into the urinal thing which is EXTREMELY common, again for reasons I can not comprehend. He had to take it to the next level my working up a good snotty loogie in his throat and spitting that in there too. He wound up the disgusting experience by heading straight out the door, washing hands just takes far too long after all.
