I do think more and more people are less concerned about their actions impacting on others. Were more and more disconnected from the physical world and just in our own little zone.As I said I have seen all sorts of dumb sh*t in the gym over the years.
I got quietly pissed off, but never say or do anything.
People are either stupid, dont care or unaware. I suspect its all three.
Weve had this discussion before about big lads dumping heavy weights and grunting and how intimidating that can be to other gym goers. Some were adamant its their god given right to carry on like a flog and other be damned.
Id say most of the time if you approach someone with respect and ask if they could do X theyll generally comply cause they didnt even realise it was an issue, id say this shirtless bloke is the same "Hey mate, could you chuck a shirt on, youre making a few other uncomfortable" is very different to "PUT A ******* SHIRT ON YOU F****T"
