…at the YMCA

Dear Mother Who Signed Her Son Up for Free Swim Lessons, Even Though He Knew How to Swim:

It was clear that you thought it was adorable that your son was swimming like a porpoise on crack, but it was incredibly distracting, not to mention rude, to the instructors and the three kids who really were trying to learn to swim.

Dear Dad in the Family Locker Room Who Was Irate Because I Accidentally Cut Him Off at the Swimsuit Water Extractor Gadget:

Get over it! It was an accident! I apologized and you responded by saying nothing. Hmmmm. Either you did not understand me or you are just plain rude.

Dear Angsty Teenage Boy Wearing Street Clothes on the Elliptical Machine:

Dude, I know your skin has not seen the light of day in three years, but you’ll sweat a lot less if you put on some lightweight workout clothes instead of ankle length denim shorts and an XXXL shirt.

Thanks,

Blonde Mom

    Amy:

    Thanks! 🙂

    They have this machine in the locker room (we have a “family” locker room so everyone can just pile on in like one big happy family…NOT) that you put your bathing suit in and it spins it around. It’s kind of cool, actually!

    Mama Tulip:

    That is honestly the most accurate way to describe this child. I seriously needed a drink after watching his water antics. 😉

    We had a boy just like that in Claire’s swim class. I was like, why did you dump that cash for lessons? Nevermind that he was at least two years older than the other kids. and the only boy. gahd.
