Default Bitch move or no?

Yesterday in the gym this dude walks in and puts his phone down on a piece of equipment, starts playing annoying rap music loudly through the speaker and starts training.

The gym already plays music. Generally it sucks, but usually on Sundays it's better. But regardless, now we've got the gym music over the speaker system plus this wankers rap playing over top of it.

I politely asked him to turn it off, and he replied he forgot his headphones. This dude does it all the time so I replied "You seem to forget them a lot." He says "Nope. First time. You should have brought yours." Inferring that if I had my own I could drown out his music with my own.


So I said "Oh, that's how this is gonna be? Fine" So I got my phone out, pulled up a Hatebreed playlist on Spotify, put the speaker on full blast, and set my phone right next to his.

Then I went about my training. He said "Fine this doesn't bother me" but he was gone by the middle of the second song. LOL.


I posted about this on a lifting forum and the majority of the responses were that I am a bitch.

What say you?

Good for you. Jacktards need to be dealt with. I wish you lived on my street. I'd send you after a couple of my musical neighbors.

I don't intimidate. I'm just the crazy gringo.

So both of you chose to occupy another piece of equipment with your phones and annoy everyone else?

I can't decide, it's a toss up between, you're a whiny bitch for other reasons, and STFU d-rap.

You did exactly what you should have done. There's no reason for people who are considerate of others to have to listen to those that are not.

The gym should have a policy of head phones only for personal music.

Like I said he was gone by the middle of the second song and I retrieved my phone and shut off the music.

You should have force fed him a bowl of Kettle of Waste. Problem would be solved forever and you wouldn't be just another whiny bitch. You'd be just an ass for your parking habits.

I've reviewed the merits of your statement, and while you have some very good points. In the end it just come down to, he's still a whiny bitch.

The determining factor was that he had to come here and post about it.

lift off: shoulder press, one try at any weight of his choosing. he lifts and you don't, he wins. he lifts, you add weight and lift, you win. he fails on his attempt, he loses.

only the strong survive.

gym? haven't been to one in a long, long time.

I mean, good for you, OP. You asked nicely, which is what I would have done, then gave him an object demonstration of why his behavior was inappropriate and annoying.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I agree with Jetski on both statements!

This really is one of the most annoying things people do in public these days; playing shit on their phones over the speaker instead of using earbouds or headphones.

People do it at the gym, in the cafeteria at work, and most annoyingly by the beach or pool at vacation resorts. Last few years every time we go somewhere people just choose to play their own music either on their phone or those portable blue-tooth devices.

Great for them; it's their music and they like it, and it drowns out whatever the resort is playing.

But for those of us at the other end of the bar or pool we have to listen to overlapping music from the resort speakers plus whatever the ignorant kunts are playing. It's annoying as ****.

Last year we're sitting at a nice beach bar/restaurant, the resort has some nice local music playing, and this couple walks up and plops down at a table near us with their Bluetooth speaker playing dance music. Awesome.
