Today I encountered this transgression against basic courtesy. I had to unload a total of 13 forty-five pounds plates on a leg press machine. I believe the machine probably had 14 plates, but the guy next to the machine might’ve removed one for his workout.
Anyway, is it truly necessary to press nearly 600lbs.? If it’s necessary, why on earth did the person not remove the weights? Was it too heavy for them to remove? The narcissist who left this mini workout circuit is what is wrong with this world. Too many self centered, short sighted individuals who feel like the world only revolves around their interests are crawling the earth with tunnel vision. These same individuals breed mini versions of this archetype and perpetuate a vicious cycle that’s egotistical and possibly sociopathic. Yes, it’s only weights, but it shines a light on a larger problem.
