Last Saturday was my older son's last swim lesson of the session. Seeing as it was right before Christmas and the middle of cold season, I felt it was safe to assume that a lot of people would be absent. Thus, the family locker room would not be nearly the horrific experience that it usually is. Unfortunately, many people also seemed to have used my reasoning because the locker room was fairly crowded.
After the swim lesson was over, we hurried in to stake our claim on a changing room and then proceeded to put on our shoes and socks on the bench in the middle of the locker room . As I was ranking the smell of pee(about an 8) and the smell of mildew (about a 6), I noticed a couple of new smells in the room: ham sandwich and coffee. Who the fuck would eat a ham sandwich and coffee in a family locker room? I turned around to see a guy strut past me and go over to what looked like his grown up kids and their children, who were in the middle of getting dressed. He began talking while simultaneously eating his sandwich and sipping his coffee. That just grossed me out for so many reasons. It also made me really mad. It was fucking crowded in there! The last thing you need in a crowded space is more people that don't need to be there. There was a dad in a sopping wet swim suit standing next to the ham sandwich eater shivering and dripping water on him because it was so damn crowded. Apparently the many tables at the Y were not good enough (do I dare say clean enough) for the sandwich eater.
