ResPEAratory therapist in flight
Loc: Albuquerque, NM
|Posted: 2/27/2013 7:50:44 PM|Okay, so first of all, when I walked into my shower yesterday, the drain was all covered in hair. Gross. Today, the drain wasn't covered in hair. Instead, there was a giant hair ball on the floor of the drying/dressing part of the shower. Gross. But here's the kicker for me. While I was showering (in my water shoes, by the way), a lady walked into the stall next to mine. She starts showering, and right away harked a loogie. And the harking didn't stop until the lady left the locker room. I bet she harked 15 loogies in the shower alone. I nearly gagged.
And that, ladies and gents, is why I will NEVER shower barefoot at the gym.

I came thisclose to shouting over the wall "Lady, you really need to stop that harking or do it in a trash can. If you want to do it in your own bathroom, more power to you. But in a public shower? That is a big no no!" But I didn't. Next time, I probably will. That is SO gross!

I can't bring myself to shower at the Gym at all. I live just 2 miles from gym I go home to shower. It's well worth the 'inconvenience' of the trip home.

|Posted: 2/27/2013 8:20:03 PM|A hundred years ago, when I used to go to a gym, I only showered there if I had to go somewhere other than home when I left. I had my gym flip flops that I wore in the shower, JUST for the very reasons you said, OP! I probably would have barfed with all that yacking in the next shower stall.

I would have told her to knock it the hell off unless she wants me to come over there and add my barf to her shower.

Gross! The gym I went to didn't have a shower, but I won't use the ones at the pool. I go home in a wet bathing suit and do it at home. The floors always seem to be really gross at public pool showers/changing rooms. I also wear water shoes when I go to public pools.

I used to always shower at our gym...until the same thing happened to me.
Thank God for my wonderful germ-a-phobe mother who would never let us walk barefoot in showers at the campgounds we stayed 30 years ago. So I wear sandals in the shower. Always!

It used to annoy me that my gym (Curves) didn't have a shower, but after reading that, I'm happy to go home to shower!!

Yet another reason I am soooo glad my gym is just across the street - no need to ever shower there.

That is absolutely revolting. And pretty much sums up why I don't shower at the gym.

I don't care how sweaty and gross I am I will wait till I get home to shower.. I have a serious phobia about gym/rec center showers.
Edited to add.. I can't shower at the pool either.. anything wet just skeeves me out....just in public places though...and I am SO not a germ-a-phobe!!

|Posted: 2/28/2013 11:23:56 AM|I used to shower at the gym a few times a week and experienced some more disgusting things than in the OP. I'm still scarred.

Ialways showered at the gym but I never ever walked barefoot through any part of the dressing room or showers. I kept flip flops just for that purpose.

I've never heard this phrase before and don't want to google from work. Did she fart or poop? Did her water drain into yours? Could you see this all running downstream?

She had some big ole phlegm filled spits going on.

It means she cleared her throat until bringing up a mass of mucus, then spit it in the shower.
