What would you do in this situation? What is the correct etiquette in this situation?
I'd totally do that and work in with the strong nigga squatting real weight, I hate fuckin weaklings taking up my racks lol... always set up right near'em and get loud and aggressive as fuck, drives the betas off asap
You sound like an asshole. We all start somewhere man.
Nothing, get another plate from somewhere and continue.
I'd tell on him if the gym had folks who care about this sort of stuff (most gyms don't), but I'm not going to fight to defend a plate. It's a lose - lose situation, and if I fight him, I would either get my ass pounded in, or go to jail because I killed a nigger. I might as well just take it like a bitch and get another plate.
>fight him, potentially die and definitely get banned from the gym
>get in a loud verbal altercation to satisfy your masculinity, and ultimately just notify gym staff like the cuck you are
Staged, the guy squating 1 pl8 pauses so he can take the plate off.
If it happened to me i'd gather all the 10lb dumbells in the gym and start throwing them at him like frisbees while hes mid set.
Happened a few days ago
>working shoulders and traps
>warming up by shrugging 45 lb plates because the db 45's were taken
>gains goblin manlet with no neck on the leg press loading up like 8 plates each side
>grunting and making loud noise during his "reps"
>barely presses it 3 inches for about 2 reps
>I know most of the people working out at my gym, everyone is friends on some level
>and it's kind of a unwritten rule that everyone reracks their weights when done with their sets
>that's how we know when someone else can move in
>I set down my 45's and go get a drink of water from the fountain
>when coming back, I spot the manchild grabbing my plates
>oh no, /fit/ warned me of this
>"Hey, I'm not done with those yet."
>puts them down, little man puffs out his chest and steps up to me
>"Oh yeah? I need them for my next set so I"m just gonna take 'em til I'm done"
>"you've already taken all the damn plates"
>his reply is "that sucks"
>oh fuck this, I am not in the mood for this cunt
>black gymbro who is fucking ripped hears him and sees what's unfolding, steps up behind me and crosses his arms
>we kind of just look at him
>dude walks away after eyeing me down
>does like 3 more quarter reps and quits
>doesn't re-rack the weights
Prolly get super mad and wanna fuck him up, then remember I'm not in prison and my physical well being isn't dependent on my reputation, report him and watch him get escorted out, enjoy the rest of my life making gainz and not getting locked up. I win.
>inb4 beta pussy
lol ok :^)
Good reaction. That gains goblin is obviously a faggot ridden with problems for giving you a response like that in that situation. You don't wanna be that child that starts an altercation in the gym over something like that. It's good that you just and others just gave him an unapproving stare before letting him go onto whatever fucking dumb exercise he was doing rather than start shit
