I was at the gym today on the bike and there was a woman one bike away from me vigorously peddling while reading the Sunday Times. As she finished with each section of the paper, she placed it on the bike between us, which happened to be out of order.
When she was finished with her ride, she got off the bike and walked away, not wiping it down or taking her paper with her.
As my mind was mulling over whether to confront the woman, tell the front desk or simply do nothing, a man sat down on the bike in question. Which then added another complexity to my internal debate -- do I tell the man that he is sitting on a soiled bike?
After all was said and done, the concentration and energy I needed to channel in order to finish my workout resulted in all else escaping my thoughts until I was at home and in the shower.
Who wants to use equipment that hasn't been wiped down or see someone's garbage left lying around? So, what would you have done?
