This is very like me at the gym


  1. Brings back memories of the days when I went to the gym before I was thrown out. Now I walk in my neighborhood, right past the house of the woman who threw me out.

    SR, take heart. I've seen you, and you don't look like the bear.

    what does one have to do to get thrown out of a gym?

  3. Wish I'd been there. (Watching, not participating you understand).

    Grandmere: not THAT bear anyway.

  4. A parishioner who lurks here, reading but not commentating, sent me the following this morning:
    "I think what Grandmere was really saying is "SR, I have seen you, and you dont look like that, bare!"

  5. Erika, after I had been using the gym for about 2 years, one of the owners, Chesty, (I'm not kidding) wanted me to sign a paper promising that I wouldn't hold them legally responsible if I had an accident even if the accident was due to their faulty equipment.

    I am not a litigious person. I've never sued anyone in my life, nor have I threatened to sue, however I was not going to sign away my rights if I was injured due to their equipment that was not properly maintained.

    I asked around and not everyone had been requested to sign the papers, so I wondered if she was singling me out because I was old.

    I returned the paper and said I wouldn't sign it, and she told me I was out and returned my dues for the rest of the time I had paid for.

    I probably could have sued her on the basis of discrimination, but I didn't. And that's how I was thrown out of the gym.

    SR, I can't believe that your parishioner attributed such naughtiness to me.

  6. Grandmere - you don't know my parishioners!
