Six Years Later, Another Example of Gym Stupidity


I went to my local Crunch gym yesterday and saw every clock was an hour off.

When I finished my workout, I went to the front desk, where the general manager happened to be.

“When are you going to turn the clocks back?” I asked.

A look of recognition appeared on his face.

“Oh, daylight savings time!” he said.

“No,” I responded, “standard time. Daylight saving time ended Sunday.”

Yes, daylight saving time. Not savings.

I am reminded of how in 2011 the YMCA I worked out at put out a brochure that was titled, “Our Guiding Principal” when it meant principle and the executive director refused my offer to proofread everything. Read it here.

It obviously takes a special type of person to work at a gym.

Until next time! Use the right words!
