At the gym yesterday, have shower get changed about to do my hair pick up gym issue (all dark blue) towel wipe face dry. Suddenly realise that my towel is actually on locker door. Just wiped/cleaned face with someone elses towel that have been drying their bits and pieces. Great! At least I didn't end up with a pube in my mouth!

AIBU to expect people to put towel in towel bin? And what is your worst gym experience. (Anyone sharted whislt doing a squat?)

I fell off the treadmill, that was embarrassing. Wasn't paying attention to my feet, accidentally put my foot on the side bar bit and then fell off, right off the back. Gym went silent so I picked myself up, got back on and pretended I was fine. Had massive great bruises up my legs!

Running on a treadmill once, the guy next to me was drenched in sweat and it started flicking onto me as he ran, eugh! I had to move!

Sitting on edge of bouncy castle many years ago (it was in a gymnasium in a leisure centre - this is the nearest I've got to a gym) while DD bounced and I was very pregnant - somehow I a) managed to bounce myself off the edge of the castle like a giant budgie's toy b) in ensuing energetic attempt to regain some decorum discovered strange large growth on inside of leg inside leggings - which on anxious examination in ladies - turned out to be the day before's knickers ( In my defence I didn't have a huge quantity of maternity leggings so tended to wear them at least twice.)

Fiftyplusmum, I am crying with laughter. That's so funny. I put blow up 1000kg weights on the rack once, the gym owner found them and thought it very amusing. He left them there for ages.

I went for a swim once down the gym. Came out, had shower, and put my cossie in the spin drying machine. I though said machine was making an odd noise so put my hand in, took my cossie well as a used sanitary towel (not mine I swear!) WTF? Who uses sanitary towels swimming? And WTF was it doing in the spinner?

I dropped it back in before getting a plastic bag to use as a glove to put it in the bin, I didn't want anybody else to have to do it.

Alma I raise you with this - I fell off the treadmill but instead of just accepting my fate, i clung on to the side rails, so that my shins were dragging on the belt. The friction burned through my leggings into my legs, but I only let go when the force somehow pulled my leggings down, displaying my arse crack to the whole of Fitness First.

I went into the shower at my gym once and someone has left a used tampon on the shelf for shampoo and shower gel shock

I go a few nights a week and there's always the same crowd. No one talks though! There's one man who ends up on the cross runner machine next to me every night and he always farts. It stinks. I'm worried people think it's me.

grin grin at Aggressive. Oh, the shame.....

I was on a cross trainer next to Tiger Woods once.

Aggressive - fshock you definitely win!

I watched someone fall off the rowing machine once. His feet were stuck in the footholds so he just keeled over to one side. Everyone was very kind and pretended not to notice.

Accidentally farted during Yoga relaxation [relaxed sphincter] and during Pilates (too much effort) blush

I once swam 20 lengths with my grubby grey bra on underneath my swimming costume but clearly on show for all to see as my costume was racer back and my bra was not. Mortifying.

Oops sorry for the square brackets [relaxed sphincter]

<<wanders off to ask MNHQ for a smiley of a relaxed sphincter for a Christmas pressie>>

daisychain01 Sat 13-Dec-14 21:45:12

Two girls were once very rude about my DH at the gym... Moaning that he smelt all sweaty. Yep, it's a gym love, we aren't here just to pose. It's a very 'basic' gym as well, just machines and weights, no pool or fancy jacuzzi etc! So it attracts a lot of hardcore bodybuilder types not that my DH is one of them, he's more of a hobbit

I had to be physically restrained from following them round the room, doing big sweaty stretches and lunges next to them!

NoelleHawthorne Sat 13-Dec-14 22:31:52

i would be mortified and send him to wash
