The gym locker housed such things as a giant bottle of moldy Gatorade, smelly gym clothes, text books and about a bazillion sticks of deodorant. Nobody cared if I stunk while playing sports, but I could never be too careful about that all too smelly armpit funk. I’m sure if I still had my very own locker at my local gym I’d have the same assortment of smelly shirts, moldy Gatorade, law books, and about a bazillion sticks of deodorant—the necessity to avoid armpit funk never goes away.
I’ve told my wife about the boy’s locker room in high school and about the men’s locker room at my current local gym as well. She makes a horrified face each time she learns about the intricacies of the men’s locker room. She’s always shocked to hear about the old men walking around the locker room without clothes or a towel, while sometimes shaving completely in the buff or watching the Discovery Channel in the nude. I don’t know what it is about the older generation of men that makes them want to drop all their clothes and just hangout (literally) in the locker room wearing nothing more than the cool locker room air, but I hope it is a generational thing; not a habit I’ll eventually pick up as my hair turns white.
Those old men have caused me to make a horrified face several times over. I’ve seen some pretty weird stuff in there. If it happens pretty regularly, can I still call it weird? Here are the 10 weirdest things I’ve seen in the men’s locker room. (By the way, since this is a family blog I’ve covered up all the indecent parts with a giant “R” which stands for Restricted.)
