  • I decided to join a new gym since my old, stinky warehouse style place got demolished in favor of some new million-dollar condos.

    A national chain has an online only promo of $179.99 per year. So I go in to eyeball the local site and I am told by the sales manager - a guy named Sean - that the lowest possible annual rate is $299.99. He says no lower rate has ever been offered and he demonstrates on his computer that their website only displays the higher rate.

    Sean declines to google the promo rate, which I confirmed later from home was still posted and available, and does his best to get me to sign for the higher rate with him (earning a commission, I presume, by convincing me that I am delusional).

    So I decided to keep running stadium stairs and using my hand weights at home!

    • You should report Sean to the national office of the chain. Address your letter to the President of the company. If you get no redress, try the Federal Trade Commission or your local consumer protection agency.

          People that do not flush public toilets after they do the job. Disgusting.

            People who use impersonal pronouns rather than personal pronouns when referring to people. :P

              Reading a 2 year old thread and having to remember what previous pet peeves I've covered, or not.

                While driving, people who are in the lane behind me pull over into the next lane and then pass me (I am not a slow driver either) and then move into my lane and either slow down or immediately turn right. As though the 2 seconds they might have saved made their day!

                  Good one. Especially the slowing down thing. What's up with that??

                    Or as an alternative (i.e. they are not right behind you but in the other lane) but you see them coming for a long ways with no one right behind you in your lane and they come up, pass you, pull into your lane and immediately slow down and turn right so that you have to slow way down or stop. They could have simply moved up right BEHIND you and turn since there was a ton of room behind you. GGRRRRR!

                    I think what is up with that is that these people are like dogs. It is a form of marking their territory, somehow leaving their mark of superiority! Drives me nuts!!

                      Add to this a principal refusal of some (many) to use a turn signal.
