Sure ... in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing. The camera doesn't take the picture, and the pan doesn't do the cooking. It's the skill of the person using the equipment that makes it work. Which is the whole point behind my pet peeve.

Not the case here ... he didn't discredit my pet peeve at all! How about, "unsuccessfully try to discredit someone else's pet peeve?" ;D

Well, if someone has a bar racked in the squat station and is hanging off the bar texting, instead of lifting - it takes him or her longer to complete the sets they are working on. That means I am waiting for the equipment longer. Which means I dont get my excercises done as fast as I would like. Which is a peeve of mine. Didnt think that one would require an explanation.....

How does them doing these things effect you? If you want to have pet peeves, fine, I like mine to be on those that actually effect me in some way.

This cracked me up. Thanks for the link! I have never heard of this before.

Re: Biggest Pet Peeve

People who constantly complain about something but never actively try to fix it. This applies to life in general but weight loss / getting in better shape is a particular complaint I hate.

Re: Biggest Pet Peeve

Serious now. These are my pet peeves:

1) Pessimists, The Victims, The Excusers & The Quick Fixers - all these fall under the same group because they are usually lazy, always right, never want to do work and expect full results.

2) Big Group of Gossipy Gym Guys - A sausagefest of muscled chickens. They yack and yack and yack then lift a set and yack again just to repeat the routine!

3) Cell Phones, Magazines, Slurpies & Slobs - Just being inside the gym doesn't mean you will get results. On the other hand, if you can lift the weights from the rack I am sure you can lift them right back.

4) I'm Not Fit Enough - Someone already mentioned this but it is a huge pet peeve of mine for people to want change but are ashamed of doing the work. Then they dwell at home drinking beer, a burger, chicken wings and give me the dirty look because I had to pass by the gym before joining them.

5) Those Who Can't Take A Joke - I love to laugh and it bothers me when people are too stuck up to even smile.

NOW TIME TO DANCE!
