Sometimes I think I should start a regular Friday post of Friday Observations. But then I think about the other days of the week and how they might feel left out because, well, I make lots of observations during their hours as well.
Observation 1: If you are a gym trainer, and you train your clients while wearing flip-flops, do not expect to be taken seriously.
Forget the whole safety issue for a second. You’re wearing flip-flops in an environment where it is your responsibility to motivate individuals to be active by completing workouts. They’re not showing up in flip-flops, because they are at the gym to exercise. Plus, it is against the gym’s rules. You should not be wearing flip-flops either. Because they’re unprofessional. And, they insinuate that you do nothing more than stand around when, perhaps, you should be assisting or showing or something. So, save them for the shower. And, really, what a safety concern! Let’s hope you aren’t showing your clients any moves that require free weights.
Observation 2: Double doors that have a locked right-side door are extremely inconvenient to open for right-handed individuals.
Is it difficult to unlock both doors? Is everyone at the office left-handed? Is the individual who unlocks the door left-handed? Does it save that much time in his/her morning to unlock only one door? Is that the way the doors are manufactured? Baffling.
Although, I’m sure left-handers are pleased.
This concludes two observations on a Friday. Enjoy your weekend!
