For a moment, her words did not compute. Yes, I saw you last week. So? Why am I moving back? Did you really just ask me that?
And then I realized, as I outlined in my "Fitness Class Characters" post a couple weeks ago, I'd run into #7, Ms. Territorial. And Ms. Territorial was claiming "her" space.
|The typical response.|
|This just cracked me up!|
So, instead of being Ms. Passive Aggressive and moving to the other side of the room next week (and glaring, of course), or worse, not going to that class again ever (I admit, I thought of that, but who does that hurt? Me!), I'll go again. I'll be prepared**. I'll kill the Besties with kindness. And I will damn well keep being nice to the people around me and help build the community I want to see. Who knows, maybe I'll develop some fitness class friendsies of my own?
Have you had any run-ins with fitness class characters?
