Rant/VentingLeg day ruined by just one female. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

It's a long story, but worth a read, lots of wtf moments.

Went to the gym tonight. As I was passing a new couple the woman was staring at me hardcore. After I passed by, I heard her tell her boyfriend "He looks ridiculous.". I ignored it and grabbed a rack.

A little about her: She's overweight with absolutely no curves, egg mode. Probably hasn't washed or brushed her hair in weeks. Legging read "PINK" all over them.

Was warming up on squats, I glance over... she's obviously talking about me to her boyfriend. I finish my set and turn down the volume on my headphones. Listening... I can overhear saying to her boyfriend "you should say something. You need to say something". A little argument ensues between them saying he doesn't want to bother me.

I'm still warming up, approaching about 65% of my 1rm where I'll increase 5% for singles from 60-80%. I focus on tightness and pause them. I'm running 8 sets of 3. Still have my headphones on, can hear her bitching on and on about my hideous form and how I'm going to hurt myself just doing a single squat.

I've been powerlifting for 9 years with no major injuries. I'm running weights that I can absolutely rep for 8-20 reps if I wanted to.

I do my first working set and she comes over, flailing her arms about and rude as shit tells me "you need to take some weight off it's way too much for you". I roll my eyes and tell her "Thank you for your concern, have a good day." And slip my headphones back on. She hesitates, staring at me before storming off mad.

She goes back to her boyfriend yelling "its unbelievable how he just ignored me like that don--- what are you doing? I told you I didn't want to do that exercise Anon." Her boyfriend mutters something I can't make out tail between his legs style. She yells again "Fine, whatever. Lighten the weight you can't lift more than me, I already told you." He complies (what the fuck).

She's over there talking shit the whole time to him, emasculating him word by word, second by second. She says some shit to him like "You should thank me for coming, I would have just been at home eating pizza or something". Jesus christ.

She's been watching me the whole time, I'm resting before set 5. I watch her walk away. I'm racking set 5, when there's her and the front desk guy right walking into the weight room. Front desk guy waves me over, I walk over and say "hello".

Immediately he tells me "You need to control your weights." She's standing there with a shit eating grin. I tell him "I am controlling the weight" he tells me "well I was told you almost lost your balance with it" I start to say something back he cuts me off "take the weight off and collect your things and come talk to me upfront"

I comply and head upfront, he tells me he needs me to sign a form saying why he kicked me from the gym and it's only for tonight, I refuse. I tell him "I've been lifting here for 5 years dude. I explained to him the weight was actually light and I was controlling it. Watch the cameras." He tells me "That wasn't the only issue, you attacked a gym member when she tried to correct you for the safety of yourself and everyone else" (what the fuck?)

I explained to him what happened and how rude and vulgar she has been all night and I said like 5 words to her. He told me she felt threatened and now I'm making up lies about her and I need to leave before he calls the police. I leave without any words.

Going tomorrow morning to talk to the gym owner, I am demanding that the front desk guy be fired for punishing me without investigation and threatening to call the police on polite and calm me. I am demanding that she be kicked from the gym for lying and disturbing other gym members. Plus her vulgar and rude behaviour.

TL;DR Some girl ruins my leg day at the gym for no good reason. Gets me kicked from the gym ultimately. While simultaneously emasculating her boyfriend. There's a price to pay for all of this.

Removed as this doesn't fit wihtin TRP's mission. If you want to vent like this again, I suggest you do so to your friends or on facebook.

Also to the OP, after looking at your post history I suggest stop your whining and realize you have a chip on your shoulder/victim mentality. Realize you're stuck in the anger stage and you're not improving yourself by bitching about life. Stop caring about shit you cannot impact and change the stuff in your life that you have the power to.

[–]re4d3 716 points717 points  (74 children)

Being an Eastern European my head cannot comprehend it. What.the.fuck? Felt threatened? Sign a form? Call the police? Ffs!

Welcome to America. Where you're constantly threatened by cops and law suits. It's the real deal here.

My friend got 2 months in jail for raping a girl he didn't have sexual interest in. A short version of the story, it was a tinder hook up, he met her... She looked nothing in her photos. Refused to have sex with her and bam! He's got police at the door in the middle of the night.

[–]HS-Thompson 246 points247 points  (12 children)

Two months in jail for rape? After not having sex with her?

That story is even less plausible than the nonsense of your original post here, or the rest of your post history which consists of stories of being tracked, harassed, persecuted, and supposedly poisoned by multiple people in your life.

[–]fakenate1 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Sounds like a pretty normal time to sit in a cell to wait for a trial or a judge to toss the case.

People realize you can be forced to sit in a cell for a while just waiting for an acquittal, right?

[–]throwaway24515 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Only if you have serious priors. First offence with no physical evidence will get you very easy bail.

[–]theemulate 1 points1 points [recovered]

Having to pay to avoid jail... Bail is such a fucking joke

[–]throwaway24515 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You know you get the money back if you show up at your trial... right?

[–]destraht 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you can afford the bail. Typically people have better things to do with their money than leaving ~$10k super liquid cash lying around. So you get a bail bondsman to put the money up and then he takes a piece with the understanding that he is allowed to hunt you down like a dog if you skip. Best case you paid someone a small shit load of money for some bullshit.

[–]RealisticKiwi 30 points31 points  (7 children)

wtf. Not bragging, but I have fucked more than 40 women (maybe 50), mostly from Tinder and met way more from Tinder whom I did not fuck and not in a second I felt that someone will call the police on me. I am not even good looking, just avg and I even have brown skin and beard like gypsies and arabs (I am neither of them, but some people might be concerned about my look). Also I am quite demanding and assertive etc, still no police. (I am from Eastern Eu)

[–][deleted] 97 points98 points  (6 children)

You'd be surprised the shit I've seen. Girls co-workers getting guys fired because they didn't get their way. All they had to say was "I don't feel comfortable or safe around him".

[–]THEnimble_mongoose 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Can confirm. That's what happened to me. I didn't flirt or give enough attention to the hos in my office so they all turned against me and mass reported to HR that I "made them uncomfortable." I know because my friend in the HR department told me about the reports and what his bosses were saying about me.

It is complete bullshit how much power they give women in the office now. I am doing better now that I'm not at that job though. I own my own business and work for myself and am earning more than I did in that stupid office job I wasted 2 years slaving away at for nothing.

Offices and HR department hate tall men who are physically fit and have muscles. Especially if they don't suck up to everyone around them and have self confidence. If they flirt with the girls they are rapists and need to be fired. If they don't flirt with the girls they are misogynists and need to be fired.

And if those confident men are white or conservative? Why are they in the office in the first place? Out, out, out. This is America ffs lol

[–]colovick 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I deal with that constantly. I've had more talks with management over girls upset I won't cheat on my wife with them. Mostly horse faced missing 1 tooth 7/10 below the neck "catches" in the middle of nowhere where I work.

[–]JoeBender1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Can confirm. Ive been fired from jobs because my female coworkers felt uncomfortable around me. Usually i dont even soeak to them but a guy who is almost 6’ tall, 240 lbs and athletic is enough to make you scary to them and their over developed sense of victim hood.

[–]mrperez82 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got charged with Attempted Murder, and I didn't even fire the gun, or was close to the guy. I was at home sleeping.

Short version - A guy punches me, I go home with a bloody mouth. Family wants to know what happened. Dad goes to talk to the guy, he gets beat up by the guy that punched me, and his friends. Dad calls his friends, there's a big fight. Fight ends, everyone is asleep. I get woken up by the police the next morning. Two people said it was me, I'm taken to the police station. And that's when I find out the guy got shot the next day, and I'm charged with Attempted Murder.

Gotta love America.

Oh! I went to trial, and got found guilty. I'm not locked up cause of my sister. If it wasn't for her, I would be locked up for a crime I did not commit.

Once again. Gotta love America.

The best thing about SE Asia is that they have struck the right balance in adopting western culture but also sticking to their asian roots. I'm from Singapore and I like the progressive way of thinking there. Take the best from both cultures.

So I'm 50. When I was in HS, the old WWII guys would go on about how "this used to be a free country. Now it's going to Hell in gasoline underpants!"

At least she gave you an excuse to not do legs. Dom Mazzetti would be proud.

That dude she complained too needs to re-evaluate his problem solving technique. Maybe something to bring up to the owner as well.

[–][deleted] 107 points108 points  (3 children)

It really is fucked up man. It seems evil to disrupt someone's health and fitness. Hobby too. I've only had girlfriends try and do this shit, never someone I haven't even met.

Broscience all day, btw

[–]Gearski 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Lol I don't think I'd even say some shit like that to someone who WAS lifting with shitty form, you never know how these people will react + it isn't my problem. I grabbed a bar a guy was squatting and pushed it back onto the rack once because he was wobbling all over the place with no collars on and his plates were sliding off, he blew up on me for ruining his workout and stormed out of the gym, never bothered since.

[–]Lordarshyn 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I'll give someone a quick tip on form if they're doing something really bad, but that's it. A quick "hey try keeping your heels planted, you're leaning in your toes" and leave it there. They can take or leave the advice.

[–]Pie_021 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Go to a different gym. Small ones are better than the corporate ones.

[–]Anti_MttR 88 points89 points  (14 children)

I agree, think dodge ball. I prefer the smaller Vince Vaughan type gym where you know everyone is there for one reason, to better their health. These Ben Stiller globe gym type places are more or less a meat market or an instagram background for gym bros/hoes.

[–]halfback910 35 points36 points  (10 children)

"Here at Globo Gym, we're better than you!"

[–]UrbanEngineer 5 points6 points  (9 children)

It's true tho... haha. Cheaper tends to be better. It's hard to find a simple gym with less free weights than isolation machines anymore though.

[–]halfback910 6 points7 points  (8 children)

I think I know why the move towards the machines is happening. Idiot proof. The weight machines are designed to be pretty much impossible to hurt yourself with.

[–]UrbanEngineer 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Yep, people definitely have tried, and probably succeeded at suing small gyms for lifting related injuries.

Baby boomers really raised some entitled children.

[–]halfback910 2 points3 points  (5 children)

That and you don't want people to know you as the gym some guy died at because he didn't bail out when he should have.

Realistically, barbells are the only potentially deadly thing in a gym unless you are engaging in behavior that would be unsafe anywhere like throwing heavy objects at people. Which, unfortunately, I've seen at my gym.

"I tossed it underhand, bro, chill out." It being, you know, a ten pound iron plate. Some people are just dumb.

[–]UrbanEngineer 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Yeah even a 5 pounder I'd ask someone not to throw that at me.. lol.

But this is what liability waivers are for. Everyone signs one, and it's up to them not to stand anywhere that is truly unsafe. Lifting is cool af, and I can always build my own power rack in my garage I guess.

[–]MrVodnik 127 points128 points  (3 children)

Don't let her nor the front desk guy get away with this. Shit like that is what's wrong with the world when it comes to day-to-day life. I hate it, and it is way to common.

Keep us updated!

[–]UltraKiwi 47 points48 points  (1 child)

One of the more frustrating things to come across is when someone complains to you to HR or a manager, and that manager will instantly take everything that person says at face value and will just not even attempt to get the other side of the story. In their mind's the are just thinking "Durr... that person complained first so they must be right." So frustrating to deal with that kind of mindset.

[–]PacotheBold 3 points4 points  (0 children)

First one to call the cops is in the right....

[–]shinolas 124 points125 points  (10 children)

So weird.

Who thinks they have the right to tell you how to lift unless you’re actually being reckless. Say like, one armed heavy power cleans in between crowded benches in the free weight area. But in the squat rack? The only person in danger is yourself.

Seems like she had some sort of ulterior motive, what that was is puzzling. Maybe it was raw attraction that was clearly unattainable for a ham planet like herself that manifested itself as lashing out and abuse of female power?

[–]omega_fat 99 points100 points  (0 children)

Not weird at all. She's a pathetic loser with an axe to grind. Always used to getting her way. And when someone doesn't comply with her wishes she goes full Trigglypuff.

[–][deleted] 65 points66 points  (6 children)

That's the thing. It was a power rack. There's absolutely no way it could injure anyone. The bar cannot travel outside of the cage.

[–]likely_wrong 23 points24 points  (1 child)

My guess is you were much stronger than her boyfriend and she didn't want to see that

[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorVasiliyZaitzev 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Or she wants the D, but knows she ain't getting it because: fat pig.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Who thinks they have the right to tell you how to lift unless you’re actually being reckles

That's not what is going on. She's been brought up on "women are the equal of men" and is demanding everyone else lift less (OP as well as her BF) so that this is true. Lack of complying leads to manufactured complaints.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The horrifying dystopia.... equality of outcome chops the powerful off at the knees.... or balls, I suppose.

[–][deleted] 49 points50 points  (6 children)

Apologies for the tangent, but being a bigger dude myself (husky, rugby-build etc.), I find I attract a lot of unwanted and unwarranted attention from fat chicks wherever I go, but especially the gym... it is as if fat broads feel a gross sense of entitlement to my attention (something about Mike & Molly, idk). I have combated this by camouflaging myself as a fucking clown at the gym. I wear neon socks, feminine colours and ill-fitted attire (often with offensive slogans emblazoned on them). It is working and I largely get left alone now.

[–][deleted] 46 points47 points  (8 children)

Update:

Spoke with the gym owner, he's not firing his manager(front desk guy) he was misinformed and was only protecting the business. However, he will be kicking the couple from the gym. He says that not only did she disturb a member and create drama... He doesn't want to see couple's arguing in the gym. He will also be creating guidelines for his staff to handle these situations.

This is a local gym, not a planet fitness. The owner says he has gotten way more bizarre complaints than this. Locker room weirdos take the lead on these.

A lot of advice and what to do in this situation. The best thing you can do is, remain polite and friendly. Comply. Do state your side of the story, but there's no need for harsh wording or becoming aggressive. Becoming angry and upset leads to you making emotionally based decisions and saying/doing things you cannot take back. Last thing you want is, having the police show up and causing a scene.

I live in Tuscon AZ and unfortunately have to deal with cunty women like this all the time. I swear, they are the biggest cunts I have ever seen. Took my little niece for a round of mini golf, we're shooting a hole maybe on our third swing... A group of adult women just started shooting the hole without regard of our existence. We ended just sidelining and reshooting the hole and letting them go ahead.

A lot of lucky posters here today. I'm really surprised a lot of you guys on here don't have to deal with asshole people on a daily basis. Must just be where I live.

[–]PLAY_MY_MEAT 12 points13 points  (1 child)

She was also telling her boyfriend to use less weight - sounds like a case of penis envy to me..

[–]BoughtenCockloft 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Freud was absolutely right about penis envy.

[–]Travzaz 75 points76 points  (10 children)

This girl sounds like two things to me: 1) Extremely resentful towards others. She clearly isn't living the life she wants to live, so she takes out her frustration on others to increase her internal status counter. She probably got an absolutely massive payout off what she managed to do to you. 2) What Carl Jung would call Animus Possessed. Jung believes that it was possible for people to be possessed by their idealized version of the alternate gender. In this case, she was exhibiting a profound need to control you and her own man (who sounds Anima possessed, possessed by his idealized version of the feminine), was needlessly argumentative with both of you, and ultimately relied on feminine aggression to get what she wants.

[–]shinolas 42 points43 points  (1 child)

100% she felt great about exerting some control over this guy.

[–]greenlittleman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Obviously. This is what happens when someone of low value can influence someone of much higher value.

[–]Je_suis_throwy 17 points18 points  (6 children)

From time to time here, i stumble over CG Jung and his description of Archetypes, the Anima, etc. Can you recommend some starter reads to grasp his concepts?

[–]Lordarshyn 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Seconding this request. I've read a lot of articles and such. A good book would be nice.

[–]PsychedelicDentist 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I just finished reading The Essential Jung: Selected Writings by Anothony Storr who was an psychiatrist that studied in Oxford.

I believe Carl Jung wrote up until a few weeks from his death, which was in his 80s, therefore the volume of his work out there is immense. Anthony Storr provides a fantastic background to some of Jung's most intriguing pieces of work - highly recommend

[–]Morphs_ 171 points172 points  (36 children)

Man this is the US at its worst. Only listening to the fat entitled woman, threatening to call the police the second you open your mouth. This shit would never happen here.

[–]DatShitRightDere 58 points59 points  (32 children)

Aussie here, guarantee she would have been told "Fuck off Sharon" and gone about your day.

[–]Gearski 33 points34 points  (30 children)

Depends where you lift dude, some of our gym's are planet fitness level cucked. I'd get ''noise complaints'' whenever I deadlift, the staff used to constantly harass me about it until I told them one more complaint about my 100% normal deadlifts (I'm not screaming in the rack or anything, just the usual bar banging sound) and I'd find a new place, haven't bothered me since.

[–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (29 children)

Have a friend that unfortunately due to where he lives had to switch to a cuck level gym. He had to give up deadlifts because of the noise complaints. He supplements it with RDLs and looks like he's in that movie A Quiet Place when setting the weight down.

[–]Lordarshyn 68 points69 points  (28 children)

We joke and do fake lunk alarms at our gym...a lot of those guys are DLing over 500 pounds, and some put flex bands over the bar, too.

It's not a quiet gym.

I heard someone complain once, and the owner said "we're primarily a body building gym. Planet fitness is down the street if you don't like it ."

I'll stay going to this gym as long as I live near by.

[–][deleted] 33 points34 points  (24 children)

I would join this gym in a heartbeat.

[–]halfback910 27 points28 points  (23 children)

The problem is, these gyms usually cost a shit-ton more.

What's nice about the Planet Fitnesses of the world is that they're cheap BECAUSE 80% of the clients never show up. Hell, I'd be at Planet Fitness if I didn't need LA Fitness's racquetball courts. How the fuck can you argue with ten dollars a month?

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I'm cool with cost. Pay 45$ a month now.

[–]halfback910 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I think LA Fitness is about 30, which is fine. But 10 is better. But just like you can't beat $10 for just a gym, you won't be able to beat $30 for racquetball courts anywhere.

If you don't do LA Fitness you have to join a "racquet club". Joining a racquet club looks something like this:

1: Give us $500. We'll put you on a list.

2: Give us $50 a year to stay on the list.

3: When a slot opens up (we don't know when) we'll call you. We'll let you in if you can get a reference from two members. Also you're not black, right? Good, good.

4: Okay now give us $75/month for only racquetball courts and tennis courts and nothing else.

5: Hey, we're looking to refurbish/redesign/whatever the courts/locker rooms/lobby. Can you donate $300?

It's worth the extra cost. PF is ten, the gym I referred to is 40. The 30 extra is worth every penny. In fact, I'm more likely to use it when it costs more because I don't want to waste my money.

[–]halfback910 2 points3 points  (16 children)

Really? A gym geared towards body builders is only 40? Here I thought body building gyms were like 80 bucks a month or some nonsense.

[–]scapeity 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My health insurance offers a program where if I pay the program 29 dollars a month, I can use about 180 gyms in the state and beyond.

LA fitness, planet fitness, and most others are included, and many small gyms.

I actually look up gyms on Google maps and Google maps tells you how busy they are, and make my decision where to go.

It's amazing.

[–]juliusstreicher 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Where you from? Sounds like my kind of place.

[–]Chaosender69 22 points23 points  (6 children)

Hope its not planet fitness

[–]khmaixover 17 points18 points  (3 children)

I heard they don't even have squat racks

[–]captainroyal 6 points7 points  (1 child)

They do have 1 single leg* press machine though.

Edit: Though keg press would work too.

[–]RinkyInky 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Keg press to train for those nights at the bar.

[–]hot_rats_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was scrolling down hoping it was a Planet Shitness and OP just didn't know. This greatly disappoints me, and I'm glad my own local gym owned by a powerlifter would never in a million years let this happen.

[–]rhetnor 122 points123 points  (1 child)

Bet she went home and frigged herself off fantasising about you fucking her.

[–]JerryLawlerPigFace 94 points95 points  (21 children)

Can confirm that this is 100% grounds for the front desk guy getting axed as well as this girl getting booted. If you have a sensible gym owner he’ll do the right thing. Don’t be surprised f he doesn’t. We all know how the feminine is favored in society today, and he’ll do whatever makes the best business sense to him. Hopefully you go to a somewhat medium chain size gym where the gym owner knows you for your 5 year long tenure.

[–][deleted] 102 points103 points  (3 children)

It's a local gym, gym owner used to powerlift and does know me. I'm hoping the talk goes well.

[–]JerryLawlerPigFace 24 points25 points  (1 child)

That’s great news. That’s a big plus in your favor. He’ll most likely agree that this bitch is whacked. Either way, he has to look at it like this: either lose this psycho bitch who is not a regular member (he is going to lose her anyway because she’ll most likely quit), or, lose a tenured gym member (you). A smart gym owner would want people like you in their facility, not these shit starters. It’s absolutely absurd and mind boggling that this random lady, who you don’t know, feels it’s her personal duty to tell you in an aggressive and unfriendly manner that your form isn’t “correct”. That’s unwritten gym etiquette 101.

[–]mrHappyPotatoe 11 points12 points  (0 children)

From easternbeurope. Here in gyms etiqutte its written in gym membership! Only certifiedntrainers can give advice.

[–]Darkone06 40 points41 points  (12 children)

It's not like having fat girls around is good for a gyms image.

I'm not trying to be shallow here but if I don't see people in shape at a gym I know I'm at the wrong gym.

See planet fitness.

[–][deleted] 45 points46 points  (5 children)

Planet Fitness doesn't want people in their gyms. It's not set-up for having a large amount of members. They make the price super cheap because most people are lazy and don't cancel small subscriptions. It's a genius money grab really.

[–]Darkone06 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Not going to lie as much as I hate their business model it works. Their stock keeps going up.

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Tootsie rolls and Papa John's pizza for all.

[–]csch65 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Planet Fitness...where they don't judge you. Unless you are all yucky muscly and sweaty. Gah

[–]halfback910 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is correct. If all their members went to the gym once per week, they'd be fucked.

[–]Copidosoma 5 points6 points  (0 children)

yeah. Front guy could have just taken 5 minutes out of his extremely busy ( /s ) day and watched to see if you were actually lifting beyond your capability. After he confirmed you weren't he could have told her to f*** off ( also /s unfortunately).

[–]Awes0meApple 55 points56 points  (1 child)

holy shit I would have cancelled my membership right at the front desk. good luck tomorrow, hopefully these actions have consequences for both the woman and the front desk guy.

[–][deleted] 41 points42 points  (1 child)

I had a similar experience once, just different setting. It was at a supermarket. Bought a coffee machine and on the parking lot I noticed that the lid was missing. So I went back to the store and informed the cashier about it, he called his manager and they just told me to grab a new one. And just come right up to the counter no need to wait in line he just need to scan it quick so the alarm don’t go off. So I head to the electronic section and grab the coffee machine. When I went back to the line it was huge and I just went to the front ( as the manager has Instructed me to do). This loud women begins with the “ excuse me get back in the line etc”. I just glance at her and ignore here, and then she turns to her husband to say something and he awkwardly and annoyed try to avoid talking and she kinda then turns to me and tries to poke my shoulder for attention but I just complete ignore here. She then tells the cashier that I jump the line and he told her that he told me to do so because he just needed to scan the machine so the alarm don’t go off. Still with a given reason she still was nagging not getting her way. This happen to me way before my own unplugging. I did have my beta ways dealing with relationships back then, but one thing I knew was never acknowledge loud women in a public setting. That just drives them more mad. Think if you just had blasted that music in your headphones, and just got into beast mode and ignored her presence you might had a different outcome. Or perhaps not.

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (0 children)

In a public setting like a gym, I only acknowledged her out of curious behaviour. You never know if she was trying to get your attention because her boyfriend dropped a weight on himself and is dying. More of a liability thing I worry about.

[–]Layback 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Wtf. Guy at the front desk was a huge faggot. Should be fired for that

[–]btrpb 78 points79 points  (18 children)

Am I the only one with the balls to say this signs like a highly exaggerated or maybe even made up story straight out of the school yard?

[–]dmanisclutch 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Yeah I’m with you, this guy just needs some karma and wanted to come here to cry wolf

[–]wanderer779 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah I'd bet dollars to donuts this didn't happen

[–]temerarious 5 points6 points  (2 children)

It’s total bullshit.

Elsewhere in this thread, OP talks about a friend who sat in jail for 2 months for the rape of a girl he never had sex with. He has also seen multiple guys get fired because a girl said he made them uncomfortable.

OP is full of shit.

[–]Darkone06 23 points24 points  (7 children)

Yes and no...

Visit a planet fitness in a smaller town and the staff themselves will come over and tell you to stop showing off.

[–]btrpb 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Live in the UK so can't say I've experienced those gyms. All sounds very odd.

[–]Darkone06 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Comedy central did a piece on it. All this shit is real at all their locations.

https://youtu.be/SbK3wWpWNto

[–]btrpb 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I watched. Sounds like Planet Fitness is a no go for people that are actually fit...

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yep. I was in a Canadian chain gym, like a planet fitness, deadlifting only 315. Staff were admonishing me for "show boating"

[–]kcxvi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think most the stories on here are exaggerated or made up. Most of these stories are subtle brags.

[–]SovereignSoul76 6 points7 points  (0 children)

There are 265K people in this sub. The chances of something like this happening is actually perfectly reasonable.

[–]9gagGod 25 points26 points  (1 child)

If the gym has cameras or anything you've already won. As a regular at that gym for 5 years you could easily get people to vouch for you as well but seriously, fuck that bitch.

[–]SovereignSoul76 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I can't imagine a gym not having cameras in the free weight section in this day and age, for liability reasons...

[–]I_STOMP_YOU 45 points46 points  (6 children)

Sub is going downhill. Fake ass post like this getting votes

[–]Three_Finger_Brown 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Seriously, this reads like a 12 year old wrote it "and when mom gets home Im going to have her kick your ass..."

Why bother going after the front desk guy or girl? (if this even happened)

Just get a refund of your gym membership or put a stop on your credit card and let them fight it out and find a new gym. Simple as that. I guess if this does ever "happen" again, you should report her behavior to the front desk before she has the chance to report you. Or start wearing a gopro at all times to record all the awesome encounters you seem to have...

[–]Cypher211 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Yeah this is complete bs. Don't believe a word of it.

[–]Je_suis_throwy 20 points21 points  (5 children)

You see, the problem was that you were lifting a weight that was probably far below her bodyweight and thus you disqualified yourself to this landwhale as mate. /S

Some SJW cunts just want to stir shit up to get that feeling of control and their Ego boosts.

As all the others said, speak to the owner and get him to review the tapes. Shit stirrers aren't satisfied with doing that once, their egos need constant assurance "that they are in control". I guarantee you, your incident wasn't the only one. In the end, the owner wants proper clients in his gym, not drama. I'm sure if your connection is good enough you can get her expelled for the false allegiation.

[–]nraborderpatroltrump 1 points1 points [recovered]

There's a price to pay for this evil behaviour. There has to be.

[–]Je_suis_throwy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yes, It's an absolutely infuriating situation.

It will take some time, but the Payback will come. You need to be patient, complying and calm when you talk to the owner. Also there might be something in her false allegation.

[–]drunkensailor74 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is its called the Type 2 diabetes she probably already has

[–]Desthr0 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would up the ante by being prepared before you talk to the gym owner. Get cancellation documents ready, new gym membership docs ready, and even get some of the regulars to hop on board. That way, if, in the slightest chance, the owner is special, the financial impact can be immediately realized.

And, unfortunately, the price to pay is frequently nothing. Justice must be exacted by those who have been offended against in these circumstances, almost always.

[–]Alpha_Centurion 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I just can't believe this is true, I'm sorry.

[–]melungeonmuscle 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Lol idk but this sounds like some details being left out. My instincts tell me you're full of shit OP.

[–]rmtusr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, sounds like some 4chan story of something... prob bs

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana 11 points12 points  (3 children)

The only relevant question: did you smash?

You had me laughing at "egg mode", that's a perfect description. Women who have that Tweedledum build are so unappealing.

Bill Burr explains perfectly why women like this are such busybodies: Why women are Assholes

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Wouldsmash for world peace. nothing else.

[–]Unrealenting 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dude don't EVER react. You should have ignored her and immediately told the front desk you were being harassed. As a man you're assumed to be the assailant in any interaction with a woman and she can lie without anyone questioning a word she says. If a woman is upset immediately remove yourself from the situation and call for help.

I once had a girl injure herself and then try to get me arrested because I told her whiny ass to shut the fuck up and wash the dishes she left in my sink for 5 days. If I didn't get it on video I'd be in prison right now. Videotape, audio record, and always have an eye-witness. We no longer live in a rational society of due process.

Which Planet Fitness do you lift at?

[–]Zech4riah 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"Can happen only in US?"

So hard to believe this actually happening :D

[–]rmtusr 15 points16 points  (1 child)

This reads like some fake bullshit. I've seen some shit go down at the gym. Impossibly bad form, slamming weights, using machines backward/wrong, and I've never seen any action taken by staff of members.

[–]accidentalfritata 25 points26 points  (1 child)

You guys are the male tumbrinas, is everyone clapping?

[–]colovick 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's unlikely but not impossible. Gyms don't stay open letting toxic people stay there. This might just be a mix of low pay employees not wanting to deal with shit and a genuinely terrible person needing banned from the location. The big thing is just not getting invested in it and realizing that at the very least someone making this kind of post not asking for advice should really have waited a day to post the results so something if value could be gained from the story

[–]binrobinro 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I hope you give us a follow-up after you talk to the gym owner.

[–]Slitoreye 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean you made this up right lol? I can't even begin to comprehend how this happened. I'm infuriated just thinking about this.

[–]TRPDigesting 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How does this have as many upvotes as it does? This reads like rage-porn.

I agree women at the gym can be oversensitive and moronic, but this is unbelievably outlandish.

In the event that this is actually true, I suggest you find a different gym. Clearly the one you're at is attracting a special pedigree of idiot.

[–]CapitalMM 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Next time punch her in the face. You would have same end result but feel awesome.

[–]Putins_Orange_Cock 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This guy is an obvious troll and this is made up.

[–]Colt42O 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I don't believe this story. Why would a random whale care about your safety? Why not tell the front guy to pound dirt and wait for the cops and tell them to watch the cameras? If this is real and you let them kick you out you're a bitch

[–]Just_Another_Wookie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's still trespassing once you've been asked to leave and refuse, regardless of what the cameras show (and the gym has no obligation to share its surveillance video with the police, anyhow).

[–]greyseal494 5 points6 points  (0 children)

don't believe a word of it

[–]AJRey 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is the dumbest shit I've ever read

[–]GoblinsStoleMyHouse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've been going to the gym for about 3 years now. I've never seen anything like this.

[–]Teleclast 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You’re an idiot. First you don’t leave on your own you ask for his manager or the owner or their number. This is just an issue waiting to happen that they do not want public. They should have reviewed the taps if there were any, and at he least this should never have gone with you being kicked and especially not a threat to call the police. This is enough for him to be written up or fired easily and putting the gym in a bad position as he is representing them with this.

[–]menial_optimist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I refuse to believe this is all there is to the story.

[–]AuntieXhrist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Chubby Bitch probably fingers herself while thinking about you. A lot of sweet overweight girls, not her—full of self-loathing with chubby-hag BF

[–]Thunderfin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's a price to pay for all of this.

Lol, made me laugh. Innocent until proven guilty seems to just be thrown out of the window these days.

But yeah, fuck her (not literally). Sounds like an unqualified total creep. If nothing's done I'd find a different gym; I definitely wouldn't be a patron of gym with those types of toxic folks.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why would you go back to this gym?

I'm a law student, so that threat to call the police or her actions I would have laughed my ass off and threatened a very real suit to the gym and that woman for tortious liability, causing me annoyance. Don't let her, or the gym, get away with their actions.

[–]Heiser_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What the fuck? That women should get a mental checkup ASAP. Absolutely pathetic

[–]pbgswd 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]Lkeacentipede 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great example of how being calm can give you the upper hand, or at least no being can only put you in a worse position.Thanks for sharing op, waiting the follow up

[–]Lkeacentipede 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Also, seing you've been powerlifting for 9 years, I'm curious what the weight was

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

395lbs was my working sets.

[–]Lkeacentipede 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Volume work with almost 4 plates is strong af

[–]daniellederek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Vote with your wallet. I'd do the manager the courtesy of a visit but if he doesn't apologize and waive fees for a couple months I'd tell him I'd be doing a charge back on the visa card for not receiving services paid for.

You did pay with credit card right? Always pay for anything intangible or that has warranty with a card. It's the only recourse you get in a lot of situations.

[–]badgerninjacow 1 point2 points  (3 children)

What I don’t get is: why bother? What was her beef with you?

[–]robinremix2000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

First of all, she shouldn't be need to be thanked for going to the gym, she should go because she should want to better herself. Second, her boyfriend needs to man up and learn to tell her no. Lastly, the front desk guy shouldn't convict OP without evidence. It should always be innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around. That guy needs to be fired.

[–]Mydogisbently 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just skip legs and do chest 7 days straight!

[–]Casd12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do you workout at Planet Fitness or what?

[–]mattizie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you know the owner of the gym, you should have told the front desk guy to call him then and there. Highly likely the cunt would have had second thoughts about telling you off if he thought you were mates with the owner.

Otherwise, should have just ignored him, see if he calls your bluff and actually calls the police... good luck keeping his job after a stunt like that!

[–]Kinbaku_enthusiast 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think my natural reaction would have been:

  • When a stranger tells me what to do and I know she just clearly wants to start shit, I would tell her to fuck off and leave me alone, go bother someone else.

(People want to start shit with polite people, not with people that bite back)

  • The moment I know someone's manipulating other people's point of view (like the desk clerk), I make sure to immediately counter attack. "Did you see me control them badly or did that girl tell you so? Because she's been trying to start shit with me. I'm not sure why, but she's cursing me, keeps trying to talk to me, I heard her lie to her boyfriend about me.

(Typically I prefer to just talk the truth, but if someone's already proven to be easily lied to without verifying, then it's more effective to play the same dirty game. Lying with certainty sways people that weren't interested in facts enough to check whether what the person said was true).

  • Instead of immediately yielding and going away, I would give him the option in advance: I would prefer to finish my workout and he would prefer me not to talk with his boss and his threat with unfounded allegations. I would do this by first saying what I would do: "I wonder what your boss would think about a 5 year member being harassed with fake stories and threatened to have the police called on. Your videos will show that I'm telling the truth. It will not look good for your performance review to harass longstanding customers. Or you could just let me finish my workout, you check the videos and learn that I'm right anyways and I won't have to tell your boss. Your choice.

Because although you'll probably do well talking to his boss, it's better to just get what you want.

Things like this are like politics. When it's a fight, be willing to fight as dirty as your opponent. Whoever isn't flinging shit is losing. Whoever isn't making deals is losing.
