Today I went swimming at the Tallahassee YMCA. It was great swimming laps outside. Thankfully I had my mirrored goggles in my bag.
Here’s the problem I ran into: people with no pool etiquette. First, you don’t jump in a lane if a bunch of kids are in it having a swim class. Second, you don’t proceed to swim across the other lanes to get to the other side. Can’t you just get out and walk? Everybody else does!
I don’t mean to come across as a swimming snob. It’s just common courtesy. You don’t walk perpendicular right in front of other people walking do you?
One day I slammed head into head info a guy who was doing the backstroke who explained to me the that he was “trying to follow that line up there.”. Well I can tell you that he wasn’t following it very well. After gaining consciousness, I wanted to kill him! Here’s a thought, watch the side of the lane too!
Here’s an article on swimming etiquette.
Well if I told the rest, I wouldn’t have anything else to say! Be careful out there, its getting hot this weekend!
