>throw their shit on the only two bench presses
>immediately walks away
>mainly chatting it up with a friend by the squat racks
>they eventually go back to the bench
>dude only looks like 150lbs and the chick is super fat
>nevertheless, dude benches 255lbs for reps while the chick benches 115lbs
>dude walks away again and hasn't been seen since
>chick has just been texting on her phone
I don't even need the bench press but this behavior pisses me off. The only thing that caught me off guard is the dude is actually strong.

      Yes, I will seethe over shitty behavior. Now they're both laying down on their respective benches, facing each other and talking, as if they were in bed together.

                Because you're upset at other couples for being in love, judging the men in the relationships. Analyzing women, and throwing hissyfits over things that you explicitly said didn't affect you.

                A happily married man doesn't need to worry about other couples nor get so mad at a couple being coupley when it doesn't affect you. If someone asked them how many sets they had left and they continued to take their time, that's a problem. But if nobody is obviously waiting. Who cares. You do. Because you're mad they are kissing like a happy couple.

                Nobody was using those benches, and he related to them using the benches as if they were cuddling in bed. An unnecessary metaphor. He is a jealous homosexual. The couple wasn't hurting anyone, nobody was waiting for a bench. OP was seething that they were being lovey dovey, not that they were "hogging" unused benches

                Yeah no shit, guess why sherlock. Not only couples act like public property is their private room, you are either trolling or don't leave your room to realise this is not a good behaviour

                You say this with such confidence. The gym was packed. You don't think in the 40 minutes I saw them there, somebody might have wanted to use the bench press? Just because nobody said anything doesn't mean nobody wanted to use them. And I highlighted their behavior to show how ridiculous they were being. Because it's fricking ridiculous behavior to get all lovey-dovey on a couple of bench presses in a public gym, lmfao. That's like saying I'm jealous if I get mad at a couple for having sex on public transportation during rush hour. No, it's just insane behavior.

                If you don't speak up, you must have not needed it. Simple as that. Stop being a coward homosexual afraid to ask for the things you want.

                Also it's two people kissing/making out to take it to the extreme and say they were basically having sex is a bad argument and shows how mad you are. It's even worse in this case because all they were really doing is talking.

                Again. Stop being a homosexual. If you needed the bench, speak up. You did not, therefore you did not need the bench. There is no issue except you saw a couple being happy. And that upsets you.

    The solution is to meet social impoliteness with social impoliteness. There seems to be this mentality that if youre rude in a careless, detached way, it somehow doesn't "count." Guess what? I don't care. If I was in your position I would just be like hey can you guys just share one bench? Or just be like how mant more sets do you guys have left?

      If someone is getting in your way you just confront them, doesn't even need to escalate just ask them and 90% of times they will just comply.

      I'd have said that if I actually needed the benches. I'm just observing from afar. I assume that within the 40 minutes these yahoos hugged both benches, SOMEONE in the gym might have wanted to use them. And unfortunately most people are nonconfrontational. Maybe I should have stepped in regardless of my lack of need for the bench.

    Row your own boat, anon. You'll find you are much happier when you stop obsessing over morons behaving moronic. If you did need the bench then it's highly unlikely they were being malicious about it, just ask if you can get a set in and more than likely they would just give you the bench to yourself. Or, just join the home gym master race and you only have to worry about your cats hogging your equipment.

      I had a homegym for a year and kinda hated it. Couldn't exactly explain why, but I much prefer going to a gym. I think it just felt too isolated.

    In my dream gym that I run, there are signs all over with a cardinal rule saying if you leave an area, it’s up for grabs. Do not leave your shit around. If you leave a water bottle, too fricking bad, come collect it while someone else is using the equipment and don’t you fricking dare make a comment. Move your feet, lose your seat.

            God damn that'd make me so happy.

            in my college gym days there were 50-60 students working out at all times and only 3 squat racks so they were always in extremely high demand, at least 2 people visibly waiting at all times.
            one time this girl was occupying one for my entire workout, 1 hour straight. she was using it when I got there and still using it when I left.
            she did exactly 3 sets during that time: the rest of the time she was sitting on the safety bar doing things on her phone.
            had never seen anything quite like it and probably never will again. I wanted to kill her with my bare hands. I don’t understand how a person can be that self-centered and oblivious to others in a public space.

            Problem is no one calls them out. Hence why I regret not calling out the couple I saw this morning. This is at a university gym too, though closer to the grad schools, so it's mainly grad students and faculty using the gym.

        Actually, with this one, I think another rule is, if you see someone with their phone out, you must shout, very loudly, “PUT YOUR FRICKING PHONE AWAY!” Then everyone else has to yell it too.

    I feel the same. I saw some dude using the one of two bench stations to do seated lateral raises with 5 free benches in front of him and I got irrationally pissed off even though the other one was free and I didn't even need the bench; it just frustrates me to see inconsiderate people. What has the world come to?

    If they're gone and chatting, use it anyways. I started doing it at my gym and when they come up I just say
    >"didnt see you around for a while so I just used it, you wanna work in?"
    usually they reply no and wait for me to finish but like I give a frick, I wanna do my workouts and leave the crowded shit gym. GOD I WISH I HAD A HOME GYM
