    No, it's more that, on a site that promotes confrontation, this was incredibly passive aggressive. Along with that, most people complaining about numbers usually sport small numbers themselves.

    I just found this thread, linked on another site. Figured I'd resurrect it to respond to something I'd missed.

    A few months after the incident pictured happened, I was in the exact same situation. I occupied the power cage while a (different) douchebag next to me did curls in the squat rack.



    Anyone who knows me knows I'm not exactly shy on confronting people when it's necessary. In the situation which prompted this article, it wasn't; I'm not the gym police and as long as I've got a place to squat, I don't care if there's a troupe of horny gypsies using the squat rack to bugger each other. So there was no need for a confrontation then.

    However, I do occasionally appoint myself as Etiquette Czar in situations when people's inconsiderate behavior makes things suck for everyone around them - talking loudly in a movie theater, for example.

    Here's what I wrote about the situation pictured above, when I posted the picture to my Facebook wall:

    This seemed to upset him a great deal and he threatened to "find me in the street sometime". He must have been terribly busy because when I inquired as to what was wrong with "right now" he turned and walked off. That's what I get for being friendly, I guess.
    The moral of the story is that sometimes you need to confront people who are being douchebags, and sometimes you don't. The difference is the degree to which their douchebag behavior impacts the people around them.

    This kind of thing irritates me to no end. I workout at a higher-end gym, which unfortunately means it's full of Primadonnas and mirror-whores, and you could count the number of LIFTERS on one hand. I've personally gone both routes: trying to be polite and quiet, letting douchebags do their thing and then letting that anger fuel an extra hard set of squats to show them what's what. Also, tried approaching them and asking nicely (I often ask hey, can we trade locations? Cuz you know, I can't do squats out here, but you can do curls out here). Every once in a while I get success with one or the other, but rarely. It's to the point where I make an effort to hit the gym during hours when I know few people are there. It's not worth letting douchebaggery get into my headspace and **** up my lifts.

    Late last year, I asked a chap sitting on the Shoulder Press station if he could share and allow me to use it while he was Resting. He told me he had 'one more set' - predictably, I told him that there is an existing Etiquette which encouraged use etc etc. He called me an "Idiot" - the brave middle class bloke.

    What can you do? (Short of knocking some fucking sense into 'em). Well, no doubt he'll meet someone less charitable than me...someday.

    Reading this thread has really made me appreciate the gym I go to. I've never had anyone be less than totally courteous to me, and everyone comes in solely to work out. My group does show up at 5am and are out by 6, so I'm only interacting with a small percentage of the clientele.
