(I didn't wanna re-write the encounter, so i copy and past my fb post)
So I'm at the gym and working on the elliptical, having a nice chat on the phone, minding my own business. And this older man in front of me (clearly wearing a headset) turn around and spouts "you can't talk on your phone! Its against the rules!"
Well excuse the shit out of my goddamn french, but I've been coming here forever and people talk on the phone all the time! Furthermore, I looked at the rules and it doesn't say jack about talking on the phone! So either your blind, can't read, or your dumb as fuck. Which is it?
Honestly, if he just asked me politely, like a normal person, I would have done it no questions asked. (Note that I ended the call regardless) But no! You just had to act like some rude entitled prick, you don't work there! Don't act you know everything because your senile!

Dunno, a lot of gyms DO have such a rule, both the ones where I teach have it... to keep a quiet environment for everyone, or there would be bedlam if everyone was trying to talk over everyone else on their cell phone!
But whether there was such a rule or not, he should have been polite and said something like, 'Would you mind turning off the phone when you're done with that conversation?'
But i hope you didn't answer him with that bunch of 4 letter words, or you were ruder than he was...2
