To me, being lazy and using people would indicate a lack of scruples and work ethic, not neccessarilly a lack of self esteem.

Let anyone of those guys that does that to them females have a sit down with Dr.Phil and I'm sure he would have trust issues self esteem issues and obviously a really horrible set of morals if any at all.

Tell that to the millions that are more than infatuated with him. Most people take his word like the word of god. I think he's a lame but whatever.

I hate when people ask for your assistance on how to lose weight or gain muscle, but then dispute the exercises that you suggest! I mean what they hell did you ask me for in the first place!

I hate that too...I also hate people who give useless advice. I once had someone's comment on my form boil down to "you're holding the bar wrong and not doing the exercise correctly." Gee, that sure helps me know exactly how to fix my error!

Oh yeah, and people who tell me my workout techniques are "cheating" - kipping pullups, power curls, push-pressing, etc. They never seem to consider maybe I'm doing a different exercise...

leanmscle13, i'll second that one. people ask me all the time how to lose fat, i tell tham my outlook on things, and get a lot of excuses or outright 'no;s'. Then i look them right in the face and ask "then why the hell did you even bother to ask me?". I don't get too many repeats on that one.

I hate that, too.

Somewhat related - I always get asked about pull ups. I'm one of the only people in my gym that do weighted pull ups. People come up all the time and say, "that's amazing, how would I go about getting my pull ups to that kind of level"..

I'll respond with, "ok, how are you with your body weight ?" then you get stared at blankly...

Then i'll say, "so.. do you actually do pull ups?"

Answer, "only on the pull down machine"...

"well, I may be pushing the boat out here, but you kind of need to do pull ups to get good at pull ups" AAAARRGGGHHHH

I'm done.

Lmao kpj. How do i get good at pull ups? Go swimming in speedos in shark infested water after eating a gallon of cookies and cream icecream that would def help! Common sense escapes a lot of people plus I think people only ask questions half the time to spark up conversation.

Another pet peeve of mine is the teeny boppers that come into the gym late at night hogging up the damn place while doing all their workouts completely wrong with horrible form while laughing and joking. Get serious tards or you will get nowhere.Also half the kids that go there late at night go to tan and socialise. Ridiculous.

Where's the giant red slap button when you need it? lmao nvm

Well, guys, that's pretty much the life of a doctor.

"How can I control my blood pressure?"
"Lose weight, exercise, cut the salt."
"Well, what vitamins would you recommend?"
"Lose weight, exercise, cut the salt OR you could get your advice from the kid at the counter of the health food store."

"How can I control my diabetes?"
"Lose weight, exercise, cut the sugar?"
"But I read about a new medicine in a magazine?"
"Well, you've got magazines, why do you need me?"

Etc., etc. Not at the gym, but the same idea.

Often people seek confirmation of what they want to do, not advice. I know I do this too, but I try to be concious of it. I find sometimes I ask advice to see how I'll react. If I have to choose between A and B and I ask my friends which I should go with, I see how I react when they answer. If they say "A" and I feel disappointed, then I really want B and I'll do that. You can do this flipping a coin with simple A or B questions, flip the coin and see if you're happy or want a best-of-three.

Doctors get it worst of all, I think. I know sometimes I go to a doctor for help. Sometimes I go because I need prescription medication and specific treatment, and I'm more inclined to argue if they try to give me something else. This is especially true with a new doctor and a familiar problem...I'd love to be able to carry my case history with me everywhere, every time I move I'm starting over from scratch.

You can carry your history with you. Just request copies of your records from your doctor when you move away. You'll have to sign for them, and may have to pay for copying. Then offer copies to the new doctor. If you want to be really sleezy, you can take out the pages you don't like. :razz:

In Canada at least, if a doctor thinks you're hiding something from him, he doesn't have to treat you.
