They re-did my gym. It's really a tennis club, with a very nice pool, and there's a clubhouse with the restaurant and bar and stuff. Mrs. Dog made me join, for Little Girl Dog, who does swim on the swim team and play tennis. She's actually becoming a very good tennis player, and I assume she'll compete on the varsity in HS. And, I do enjoy going to the sunday brunch on Mothers Day and Easter. The pool's real nice too, but hell, a pool's a pool. But it's good for the kid cause of the swim team.
Anyway, all I get out of this is I work out with the weights, machines, treadmills, bikes, stairmaster, etc. A basic gym, which is housed in 'the indoor center,' which is seperate from the clubhouse. The clubhouse has a really nice locker room where the tennis players generally change. The indoor center was grungy, though it was clean except for the a-holes (since we've been taken off for bad language, I think I can use that) who don't flush the ****ters. (ditto) So, aside from the a-holes, I had no complaints. Well, there are the guys who watch Fox News with the sound turned up instead of ESPN Classic or some music.
So, they're remodling at millions. A whole new clubhouse. Moving courts around. A game center for the kids. New restaurant. yadahayda. Mrs. Dog of course is for this. Dues will of course have to be increased. Did I mention that I had to pony up 5K to join, and my dues are over 200/mo, with swim team/tennis lessons extra, and I paid less than 75/mo at the Y, where I had better machines and more weights?
Anyway, when the remodled the indoor center, they swithced mens and womens' dressing room. The womens room is half the size. I've NEVER seen a woman, outside a pro tennis player when they're in town, workout and then use the shower and rush off to the office either in the 6 am crowd or the noon crowd. Not to be a homophobe, but I'm litterally rubbing naked sweaty asses (I think I can use that word) with OTHER MEN. Not to be a homophobe, but I don't like rubbing naked sweaty asses with OTHER MEN.
Now, I'm sure no man suggested downsizing our dressing room in exchange for paying more. Why do women do this ****e?
