Though I've managed to avoid the sight of any "bums" at the gym I belong to, I have run into plenty of airheads (mostly teens/young 20somethings) who camp out on a piece of exercise equipment (the one I need to use, typically) and use the time on their cell phones catching up on their email, carrying on conversations with their friends about their social lives or checking out the latest bargains on the Amazon website. After an early period of politely overlooking this and going on to other things, I've lately taken to asking questions like "Excuse me, do you break for meals?" or the like. This is just plain old self-centered rudeness, but the operators of the gym don't seem to want to confront it so I have to do it myself.
