Gym Discourtesy

I force myself to drive to the YMCA three times a week in order to get exercise, hoping it will reduce my girth and give strength to my legs. I exercise only on the bikes and faithfully pedal for 42 minutes. This morning, when I mounted my bike, I did so next to a lady who was sitting there pedaling industriously and minding her own business. However, she was soon joined on the side away from me by a lady who came just to stand and chat. When I bike, I read in a paperback novel. This morning, reading was nearly impossible as the two ladies did not talk in a normal tone but in voices that were loud and boisterous. The chatter included much about the standing lady’s mother and about not being willing to give anyone a second chance. I suffered through the 42 minutes and considered a confrontation. However, my better judgment made me write off  this gym visit to a unique two-some who were rude and didn’t realize it.
