Some quick observations about locker rooms:
First. Am I the only woman in the world – or at least at the M’town JCC – who waits for her deodorant to dry before she puts on her shirt? I have seen other women put on their shirts and then put on their deodorant. Doesn’t that stain your clothes? Not to mention feel sticky and icky?
Second. Does this strike anyone else as weird? You leave the pool. You walk back to your locker – splish, splash, puddling water behind you as you go – to get your shampoo, conditioner, and soap. You backtrack to the shower. You finish in the shower and return to the locker – where you get your towel and dry off.
Maybe you could have taken the towel with you into the shower with the shampoo? Just an idea.
Or – radical thought here – maybe you could do as I do – and I am far from perfect but I think I have a pretty good system – you could leave your all your shower needs near the shower before you even go into the pool so you wouldn’t have to return to the locker area soaking wet at all.
The advantage of this system is that it confines the water on the floor to the shower area so that the locker area is dry. That way, the people who are dressing in that area don’t worry about getting wet feet when they are transferring said feet from gym shoes back into work shoes or about getting work clothes wet if they accidentally touch the floor.
The end of the line
