A Wicked Good Time
There seems to be more stupidity than usual at Reggie.
The crowds have died down but as the quantity has gone down so has the quality.
There was a group of idiots in there last night just having a grand old time in lane one. Not looking before steping onto the track, running thier strides onto the banking from the straight away, and just stopping and walking in lane 1 when their intevals were over. One girl I had to tell 4 times to get out of lane one when her intervals were thru and all I got in return was more standing in lane one and the "don't blame me I am an idiot look" in return. Then there was the moron who was running a 50 down the back stretch in lane 4, passes me then abruptly turns into lane 1 and starts running the wrong way with his head down. Who the hell does this? When I realized this idiot was not going to see me I jumped towards lane 2 at the last second but we still collided. He was nice enough to say "that was mostly my fault." Yeah mostly, idiot. There is just no ettiquette at all there anymore. Everyone just thinks it is their track and just for them. It is a huge place with plenty of room for everyone, all you have to do is pay attention, stay out of lane one unless you are in an interval, and don't start your interval until there is a break in the action. When you are done, go onto the infield or up the banking but don't just stop and grab your knees like some sort of drama queen.
Anyway, Pretty good workout last night except for the fact I had to be on moron patrol the entire time.
