Human Isn't So Bad Afterall

Dear Zach,

I woke up to usual routine - have my breakfast and go to the gym. This could be my last morning workout before I start working next week as I will have to work out at the evening with the crowd of people. I strutted into the gym and changed into workout gear, and started pumping iron. During the period, I was looking for 10 kg weight plates and, so happened that, I spotted two of it at the corner unused. So I grabbed it and slid it into the barbell at both end points. 

After I finished my first set of exercise, there was this bald guy, who is in his forties, short and muscular, approached me and said, "Are you aware that I was using the two plates just now?"

I was stunned, I certainly didn't aware that he was using it as it seemed being left unused to me. I didn't get defensive by his confrontation, because I wasn't intend to. 

"Oh! I didn't realize. Do you want it back?" I quickly said.

"Nah. It's fine. I'm done with it. You can have it." He said, turned around and continue his workout. 

I could sense that he was a bit pissed off. But I shrugged it off and continue my workout. Throughout the workout session, I could feel that he kept throwing glances at me. I couldn't help but to glance at him unintentionally. He's quite hot in his short muscular frame; he's quite hot at the age of his. The tightness of his workout shirt wrapped around his rock hard bod couldn't be more sexier than he already is. I quickly glance away before he catches me watching him and drags me to the side and punches the living daylight out of me for stealing his plates and ogling over him. 

By the time I finished my workout, I walked into the changing room, and saw him packing his bag, right just few lockers away from mine, I pretended that I didn't see him, and undress myself. He grabbed his bag and walked past behind me to the entrance. Seconds later, he reappeared again and approached me, and hands out to give me a fist pump, and said, "I'm sorry about just now. I shouldn't have snapped at you. I was having a bad day."

I was surprised. Really surprised by his course of action. 

"No worry. That was my fault. You should've told me that were yours. I'm sorry." I apologized, and patted his muscular arms. 

"No no. It's fine. I shouldn't have done that to you. I feel bad about it," He said sincerely, "Just bad day."

"It's okay. I understand." I smiled. He's not that bad after all. And his politeness made him extra sexier and hotter. 

"I'll see you around." He gave me a wave.

"See ya." 

Well, human isn't so bad afterall. 


  1. I'm glad this was resolved amicably so you didn't start off with a bad experience

    1. I don't intend to make foe in the gym. I'm very grateful he made an effort to apologize. People nowadays wouldn't give a damn about it.

  2. Case and point: two sides to every story.
