The gym is remodeling, they have shut the s&s rooms while they do this, although physically they could of left the old ones open while building new ones.

Its going to be 8 weeks without either. Aibu to ask them for a refund of my fivety a month?

I really look forward to them after a session.

Poor Shawna.

You could try to negotiate a partial refund. I don't think they'll refund the whole amount.

Shawna needs a refresh every now and again!

You should ask for fivety percent of your fivety back, assuming you can use all the other facilities.

Yes it's annoying but in my gym they don't give any money back when they have a refit. No harm in asking though.

Fifty sauna even!

Stupid dyslexia.

KittenOfWoe Tue 17-Nov-15 18:19:29

Hmmm tricky, Shawna is definitely worth a fivety on her own.

You could ask for a portion of your 'divert' it won't be all or half.

Yiu pay your membership for the gym. The sauna is only a small part of the facilities.

Ffs should not mn and talk to the child

You could ask for half of your 'fivety'

And the second typo was you

Don't worry about the typos OP we all do it as you can see, they make most of smile smile

Yabu, there's other things you can use at the gym. It's probably much required maintenance too.

Fivety a month sounds a lot. I only pay threety grin.

CreepingDogFart Tue 17-Nov-15 18:26:37

Maybe Shawna needs a rest.

BlueBananas Tue 17-Nov-15 18:30:26

Just clicked on this for the inevitable jokes grin
Fivety for a Shawna ain't too shabby I don't think

Aww l know its only banter and being light hearted but there's somethings you don't take the piss out of and dyslexia is certainly one of them.
Tbh Tom. I just thought it was auto correct not being able to keep its snout out.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 17-Nov-15 18:34:04

Fifty pound a month seems a bit steep.

PegsPigs Tue 17-Nov-15 18:39:17

Zipping I am actually crying with laughter at that! grin grin Much to DD 5 months chagrin as she's try to feed.

Sorry OP not taking the piss out of your dyslexia.

Yes you could ask for a small rebate but there's a good chance they'll refuse.

PegsPigs Tue 17-Nov-15 18:40:46

Fivety a month is the going rate round our way. If not more like seventy.

Babbafish Tue 17-Nov-15 18:41:49

Crying with laughter!!!!

BarbaraofSeville Tue 17-Nov-15 18:45:02

I'd ask. Every so often I get a short term membership of a local gym and only use the pool, steam room and jacuzzi. I run and cycle so don't want or need conventional gym equipment, but occasionally feel a desire to ease my aches and pains by sitting in a pond of other people's sweat and skin flakes grin.

If they weren't there, there would be no point me going.

ophiotaurus Tue 17-Nov-15 18:45:31

OP has said they have dyslexia. Can we leave the spelling jokes alone now?
I would ask. The worst they can say is no.

Leelu6 Tue 17-Nov-15 18:45:47

Love the word fivety smile reminds me of Bilbo Baggins' eleventy first birthday.

I don't think anyone made fun of dyslexia.

GoofyIsACow Tue 17-Nov-15 18:45:55

I am really just here for the comments! (Really not taking the piss OP, i think you should ask, they can only say no)

Threety just made me roar!

I pay twoty because i piggy back on DH's membership

SpangleDragon Tue 17-Nov-15 18:58:05

Fivety - new fan here <<<<< waves

OnlyLovers Tue 17-Nov-15 18:58:23

I'd ask. Eight weeks is a long time.

PaulAnkaTheDog Tue 17-Nov-15 19:02:16

Wow. OP says she's dyslexic and yet the jokes still continue. Nice.
