Gym Freak of The Week

Yesterday when I was stretching on the pool deck I encountered this week's Gym Freak of The Week. This old man came walking up to the lane one over from mine and just stood there, looking at the water. I'm like "oh great, did he just fall asleep standing up or something?"

No No, he didn't he was just contemplating his plan of attack. You see most older people enter the pool from the stairs because crouching down to the pool deck hurts their legs, so when he just stood there it was obvious he was planning an alternate method of getting in the pool. Which keep in mind diving isn't allowed.

So after what seems like forever, the old man decides to make his entry into the water, in what seems to be the world's biggest Fail of a Dive gone wrong into a Body Flop. Now normally I wouldn't care, but the wrath of the tidal wave that followed his body flop was SO big that it DRENCHED me.
I know you are thinking, "Katie, chill out, you are about to get wet anyways" but to that I say, I like getting in the pool on my OWN terms, not when the old inconsiderate man decides to belly flop into the pool. SO annoying!

So PLEASE enter the pool politely, Diving Is NOT Allowed for a Reason.
