Since joining the gym 2 months ago, every time I have been I have used the same locker, number 91 to be exact. But today when I got there its key was gone and somebody was using it shock
Aibu to feel sad 'my' locker was gone. 91 felt familiar and number 92 just wasn't the same.
I also don't like it when I can't park in my favourite space grin anyone else secretly own public objects? Tell me it's not just me lol.

I went to the gym, with you! grin

Seriously though there was a woman who used to get annoyed (loudly) about people using 'her locker'

After one ridiculous outburst....we all started using it grin

I tend to park in the same areas but not worry about the actual spot

Haha I would never say anything publicly, that woman sounds crazy! Though I must have looked ridiculous when I went over to it and it was gone grin

I used to secretly own a spot to park my bike at my last job, I "own" a bench on the playground and I have a seat on the bus which is mine, not that anybody acts accordingly..

Oh yes, I have my "own" parking space at the supermarket. grin.

Haha, I'm exactly the same! My locker is number 3. I feel irrational rage if someone has taken it. It's mine -mine I tell you!!

I confused myself at the gym the other day by parking in a different space as I usually use the same one but someone was in it! I also have the same spot when doing body pump. Doesn't feel right if I stand anywhere else.

The fucking inconsiderate fucker.... Hope she swiftly fell off the treadmill 😂

My locker at the pool is 73. Great rage if someone else has it. grin

I don't have my own locker at the gym but I do have my space in gym classes! If I get there and someone has their mat down in my spot I don't know what to do with myself!

Glad I'm not the only one grin

I'm exactly the same! "my" locker is 321 and someone was using it this morning...oh the HORROR! So I had to use the one next to it, then spent my whole work out muttering "320 320" to myself so I didn't forget grin

It gets me all of a dither I tell you.

The very first time I commuted to London, I was on the platform waiting for the train when a man walked up to me and said in aggrieved tones, 'You're standing where I stand'.

I go to a certain pub every week with a group of friends, we do an evening class together and then have a drink. Last week there were strangers sat at our usual table when we arrived and we were all most perturbed!

You should have got the gym to call over the tannoy

"will the user of locker 91 please go and empty it. It is candys locker and you have stolen it. Stop being so rude"

Candycoco Wed 02-Dec-15 14:39:19

Gerund that is hilarious, did you move? grin

sparechange Wed 02-Dec-15 14:39:39

I have my locker, my spin bike and my shower at the gym!
I get strange looks when I loiter by the showers waiting for 'mine' to become free when there are other empty ones

reni2 Wed 02-Dec-15 14:43:03

Put a post it note inside "The last user of this locker died". Many people are superstitious.

GerundTheBehemoth Wed 02-Dec-15 14:44:40

Candy, yes, I did move. Out of a combination of astonishment, and a desire to step away from the odd man!

I have a locker at the gym, no. 144 (which I like because it's 12 squared). It's often in use though, so I have a reserve, no. 140 (which I like because it's divisible by 7). I don't have a second reserve though for when that's also full.

Candycoco Wed 02-Dec-15 14:54:57

I also like the treadmill on the very end left as its in front of the tv which plays itv grin, the cross trainer on the end right as its under the air con, and the bike 2nd left as I just like that one. I don't like having to use other ones.

I also have a favourite toilet cubicle smile

Someone was in my mat space last night when I got to my yoga class.

I felt distinctly un-zen about it.

MaxPepsi Wed 02-Dec-15 15:02:20

haha, we have a 'table' in the pub we always like to sit at.

We are most put out when owe walk in with the dog and other people are sat there!

We tend to sit at the bar instead, which is not a problem as such, I just can't be as nosey at the bar as I can be from the table!

We got to mils one day and she had a guest who was sat in my seat. I stood in the doorway and didn't know what to do with myself. As soon as he left, I switched seats.
