Why my gym pisses me off


me: Let’s go to the gym

Jack: I have to finish this game first.

me: Hurry up, because we’ll never get a parking spot.

(30 minutes later)

me: Ugh! No parking spots! Do you remember what we did last time we were here and couldn’t find a spot?

Jack: Yeah, we left and went to eat at Bill’s. (restaurant)

me: I’m SO about to do that now. I’m starving AND I want to work out!

Jack: I’m not hungry now.

(10 minutes later)

me: That’s it we’re going home. We can workout in front of the TV.

Jack: You should just park on the curb. If we’re going home then I’m going to do my math homework.

me: We have to do our exercise first!

Jack: I had gym today. in school. YOU can do your exercise in front of the TV. My homework is more important anyway.

me: We should just do a little bit…

Jack: I’ll do some exercise after homework and after dinner.

me: No way, I can’t workout after I eat. I’ll just do it by myself now and then we’ll eat dinner.

Jack: I told you I wasn’t hungry, so you said let’s go to the gym and you’ll be hungry after. Now we’re going home and not working out, and I won’t be hungry so I don’t want dinner anyway. All your plans backfired.

me: Yep they did.



Not really loving gym class

Jack: I tasted blood today in gym. Or P.E. as I like to call it.

me: You’re a funny kid you know that? Blood again huh?

Jack: After running 50 laps around the gym you’d taste blood too.

me: Yeah, 50 is a lot. You sure it was 50?

Jack: Of course I’m sure…I’m great at math!!

me: Oh, well, maybe you could ask your gym teacher to cut it back to 40 laps or something?

Jack: He doesn’t even listen to us! Even if I called him on the phone he wouldn’t listen! What am I supposed to do, dial his number and say “congratulations you’re an idiot”?

me: Heyyyyy! Don’t get crazy here…

Jack: See what I mean? It’s just craaaazy in gym. Now you understand me.
