Well I went to gym called 24hour fitness, I am not a member but I entered with free guest pass. Btw this has nothing to do with topic, but as a free guest, I decided to be try to be nice to everyone... I mean I am generally nice guy until somebody mess with me.
Working in gym longer than 6years, I know the gym manner and it's not like I am a newbie to the gym. Anyway, it was 10p.m., and I was pretty exhausted, I felt a little pain in the head after lifting heavy deltoid machine, and moved on to dumbell area for shoulder raise. By the way this gym is huge and always crowded.
Here in this gym, about 60% is white, 30% asian, rest is minority. I am not being racist and not racist myself, but I will just say this based on what happened today. Well I am asian myself, and when I was asking if someone was using weight or not to White people, they answered it verbally and was polite as well.
Problem begins when I went to pick 25pds dumbell for shoulder frontal raise. (one that u lift dumbel frontward). There was skinny ass asian kid who appears to be at least 17years old. I mean I don't care if he is skinny or fat, I asked him "Are you using this one?" instead of picking up the weight in case he is going to use it. Guess what this kid did. He lifted his index finger and waved it as if to sign to me to pick it up although he wasn't looking at me directly. I felt angry but I didn't want to cause trouble. I am not even member in this gym and I came here to work out. I won't ruin the day and possibly pulled over to police. I ignored and did the training.
I questioned myself "Is this how today's young kids sign to others? Maybe I haven't socialized with any younger kids so probably having some sort of age shock.." or maybe my tone wasn't nice... but at least I asked. Maybe I frowned a little because I was so tired and he took it as offence, but I don't remember at all. I mean come on, why the hell am I thinking all this????!
Anyway moved on for next exercise, seated side raise with dumbell. As it is crowded place, I saw group of 2friends (probably Korean because I'm korean and know how they look like) working out in front of 30pounds. They were using 20pounds, but who the fuk knows if they are gunna use 30pds when they are done and I don't even know when they are gunna finish it.
To be nice and not to bother, I asked "Guys are you guys using this one?" by pointing the 30pds dumbell. I wasn't even making threatning tone or anything. Again, same thing happened. One of the guy waved his index finger. I mean not as a no sign, I know no sign would be waving to side by side. He waved in a way to confirm. I took the weight and used it, and againt, felt like raging..
Do I look skinny, weak? No, I hate to brag and I am not those who act tough, but I do look buff / muscular and not small. So this isn't the case where they thought I was weak skinny loser.
And last one, I saw a mexican guy was doing squat. This is only squat free weight thing in the gym. I saw this guy sitting while taking break, so I asked him if I can share. He said ok. Now I think this guy is a lot better than those asian kids. I went to restroom and came back and if he was still using it. Guess what this guy did. He moved his hand on his neck looks like the sign when u show someone u gunna cut their neck. I don't know if this is how Mexican guys sign each other but aren't they aware that might offend someone?
Well I wasn't born in here in US so maybe some of signs are Americanized(?) sign done to strangers(...) and nobody is taking offence with it. I don't know so please tell me. If this sign thing is done in everywhere, I guess I will get used to it and use the sign as well...
Any thoughts and help is appreciated.
Dedication and Greatness are forever intertwined

Also, lol @ all the phaggots that you see spending hundreds of dollars so a girl can flash her tits. All of those girls are hustlers, they know their ****.
Also, it makes me rage how all the members make friends on there and have quirky little beta conversations kissing the girl's ass. FUUUUUUUUUUARK!
