Locker Room Etiquette

A show of hands please...

Please raise your hand if you think it is acceptable to stand in a gym locker room, butt nekkid (except for a shower cap), and dry your butt crack with the automatic hand dryer.

Insert Jim Halpert Face.

Yes, this is the scenerio I encountered today at the YMCA. I walked out of my shower stall to find an old, wrinkly woman, in nothing but a shower cap, bent over underneath the automatic hand dryer. I was so appalled. I feel like my eyes are going to fall out of my sockets. I may never sleep again.

I tried to rationalize it, but it wasn't possible. The only excuse I could come up with was that she forgot her towel (the YMCA does not have towel service at that location) and her butt crack MUST be dried completely. Air drying just won't cut it. But NO! I saw her walking around with a towel a few minutes later!! OMG.

I seriously might die.

Tommy regaled me with a story of him watching an old dude put his jewels on the counter and then dry them with a regular hair dryer.


I'm traumatized beyond repair.

She was letting the hand dryer motor boat her a$$. Seriously. I'll never sleep again.
