I've been reading on this forum awhile and thought I'd start participating. I was having a discussion(at work) with someone who owed me money and he didn't like the fact I was tired of the 1,000 excuses run around. As I was walking away he started talking smack. He said "your little kettlebells won't help you" and let's fight after work. I said whatever and went back to work. I was surprised that he did this and I admit I was a little angry. After work he still wanted some but after cooling down I decided I didn't need to prove anything. Believe me it was tough and I thought good thing he didn't say anything about my clubbells or it would've been on(lol). Thought I would share my story with you all and just because an ignorant might need a lesson, you don't need to give one.

It must be an interesting atmosphere you work in. Tell us about it.
So the guy is trying to get out of his debt by threatening violence now?
Talk to you soon.

Hi Coach Chomycia,
Yes, it can be an interesting environment to work in. It's basically wharehouse type work and you don't exactly get geniuses there. It's pretty funny the way this guy thinks because after he calls me out, he then runs to a boss and tells them I was talking bad about his sick mom. Yes, he wants to fight to get out of debt. What if he loses? Does that make it double or nothing?(lol) He's just one of those types that thinks fighting is the divine answer to any disagreement. He definitely believes that his boxing can defeat anything. The thing with close minded people is even if you prove they're wrong they would find an excuse not to change. Kind of like clubbells; yes they feel heavy, yes they're hard to workout with. But people seem to think they can't help because the overall weight is to light. Oh well. :lol:

That sucks that he played the Boss card first. I'd just chalk it up to one of those character building experiences. Let the frustration dissipate within your Clubbell workout. But, don't use chalk on the Clubbells. :wink:
Talk to you soon!
