In certain locations, there are certain unwritten rules that everyone abides by, and these rules are generally accepted. An example of this is the gym where staying away from others’ private space if possible has become an etiquette.

A 27-year-old woman turned to Reddit to ask if she was in the wrong by leaving the gym earlier because of the man on the next elliptical. The response to this was that the internet came out in support of her while condemning the guy.

The poster, who was feeling uneasy because of the guy’s presence, chose to end her workout earlier than planned. After she had finished wiping the machine, she had planned to leave quietly, but the guy disrupted her plans with a strange action. After inquiring about the woman’s progress and being aware that she had completed her workout, he suddenly became hostile toward her. He accused her of “treating him like a predator” which offended him.

Redditors have provided the post with approximately 2,300 comments and upvoted it more than 12,000 times. Most guessed that the man in this story must have malignant intentions due to his odd behaviors. They supposed that he would have chosen an elliptical far from the woman unless he had a particular purpose. Aside from that, it was odd that he took notice of the time the woman, who was a total stranger, left. Even more unsettling was the way he desperately tried to demonstrate that he was not a threat to anyone.

Some people thought that it was probably understandable why he chose to use that machine because it could be his habit. On the other hand, his behavior after the Reddit user left demonstrated that this was not the case. It was obvious that a guy who was not a threat would not have any reason to comment on the duration of another person’s workout while they were in a gym.

Many people thought that the woman had made the right decision to leave early, and they admired her politeness toward the suspicious man. Many people agreed that the woman had made the right decision. Netizens asserted that she was doing right and there was no need to feel guilty when she followed her survival instinct.

Do you have any reason to suspect the man who was described earlier? What actions would you take if you were the woman in this situation? Do you know any other etiquette people should respect in the gym? I would appreciate it if you could leave a comment below sharing your thoughts.
