The Monthly Gym Results and story With The Old Woman

--- Just after comeback from the gym, I straight away go to my small office, turn on the computer, and then checking if there is any email for me. I've intended to write a post when I was in the gym ---- before an incident happened in the gym...

I haven't been to the gym so often --- I guess that because my recently flurry makes me so lazy to do an exercise, even just for a walk. Usually I was very dilligent to do exercise, but my brain is kind a switch turn on and off for doing exercise. Especially since my hubby doesn't do excercise i.e. playing football, that's make feel I have no reason to go the gym as well *stupid I know. 

Thinking of I've spent my money in the gym for nothing --- and that makes me feel guilty of myself; thus, I decided, and enforced myself that I have to go to the gym today!

Soon I arrived in the gym I asked Nico to do a measurement (I haven't been done my measurement since two months ago), I could see Nico looks so happy to my attendence in the gym again --- she knew already about my lazyness.

I was pretty happy with the measurement results as it didn't like what I was expecting; I was thinking I might get a bit more weight --- fortunetely, the result's shown I still have the same measures as two months ago. Two only things are changes in the measurement, I got a reduction in my arms, about inch --  and ascension on fat body about 2 %. Nico said "No need worry about the ascension of the fat body, it's only a small fat body". 

"WELL, I DON'T LIKE IT, NICO" I replied to her.

However, after a small chat with Nico. I soon climbed to the second floor to do my duty. Not many members attended the gym today --- and most of them were seniors (between 40 to 60 ages).

After doing 5 minutes of straightening I then started with the first machine. Just a 10 minutes after --- a senior (age between 55 to 60) said something that I did not really hear it (as the music was so load). 

"Sorry?" I asked her
"I follow you, you suppose to change every 30 seconds" She said with a dispointed face.

What?! I said to myself. Did she not see that's depend on the machine's tag? If the machine doesn't say it's done so I won't change it. AND THAT'S THE RULE.
I explained to her that I wasn't finished yet --- and I would move if it's done. But you know what?

She looked not very happy --- and walked away with a face think that I'm stupid!

Nico came over to us when she saw we looked like in a trouble of doing the machine --- I just gave an explanation to a strange stare to Nico and at that woman. "Did you put the tag twice, Sri?" Nico asked me wondering why that woman looks like so mad at me. 

A stupid question --- I assume. And I was so lazy to depend myself with an explanation that I'm sure she knew already. So, I just answered "No".

This is the problem if all citizens in a country want to be independent --- I respect that woman certainly -- after and before the incident, I do. If it happened in my country I would be happy to give my machine to her and said "Sorry..." (Though it wasn't my fault at all), but she's not a type of old person like in my country; she's and independent senior, and she knew the rules, she knew.....

Nice saying shows your character but that doesn't mean you can criticize. You can still do both in nice and polite way.
