Too lolzy not to post here:
Brb almost getting into a fight with someone at the gym.
Warming up on bench. A guy, quite aggravated, tells me to rack the weight softly. The sound of the bar racking on metal hurt his ears.
Me: dude, it's a gym. There's going to be noise.
Him: you've been told before! About deadlifting! But you don't listen
Me: I try to put the weights down as controlled as I can
Him: no! No you don't care!
Me: *puts headphones back on, because in my mind this man is stealing my gains*
(5 minutes later, trainer comes with guy)
Trainer: hi there, could you please try to put the weights back softly?
Me: yes I try, but please tell me how I can put the weights back quieter than this? *i do a rep and rack it*
Guy: you were doing it louder before!
Me: no I wasn't
Guy: this guy comes to the gym, I was here for a long time before him! Then he comes next to me and makes a loud noise and bothers me!
Me: it has nothing to do with who was here first, this is a gym. People lift weights and make noise. Wear headphones.
Guy: you think that because you're white, you can do whatever you want?
Me: what... The fuck?
*trainer gives me the "oh. Welp he's crazy look*
Trainer: "can you try to do it quieter, please? (Now there is a crowd)
Guy: you were a trainer before, right? But you don't know how to rack a weight! You need me to show you?
Me: ok. Show me. Do a rep and show me how to rack it.
Me: you asked if I wanted you to show me. Show me, please.
Guy: ... No! You're a trainer, you should know.
Me: ok please tell me if this is ok *i do a rep*
Trainer: that's ok.
Me: ok so this is fine?
Me: ok thank you. *goes back to workout*
edit: I should mention that this fucking scum left his weights all over the gym on the bars
