Speaking of not standing too close to me....

I'll share with you one of my biggest pet peeves (and no, it doesn't really have anything to do with personal space). People who work out right next to you at the gym, and SMELL. I just don't get it. Do they not smell themselves? I was running this morning, and the only treadmill available was next to a man, who I've run next to before.....and swore never to again. He just has horrific body odor. I know, I know, maybe he can't help it. But, maybe he can. I was only able to be next to him for 5 minutes, and then had to switch to a different part of the gym.

There is also an older woman who does the step class I used to do. I won't say that I stopped taking the class because of her smell, but I dreaded when I wound up next to her. The smell was so strong, I just can't imagine that they don't notice it. Anyway- there's my mean-spirited pet peeve. Deoderant's a good thing.

Its not mean... I share the EXACT same peeve. Even if its just a walk by, i cant get it out of my nose for awhile & it bugs. There are definitely NOT enough fans in teh gym!!! BLOW IT ALL AWAY!
