“Gentlemen, this is an indoor pool at a gym. There are not a lot of kids, mostly there are older people.”
Rachel interrupts to tell them “Yeah, and don’t look at the old guys wearing the Speedos because that is just WRONG on so many different levels.” (I almost swallowed my tongue!)
“Please try not to be rude, or splash these people. They are mostly swimming laps, so just keep out of their lanes.”
Rachel starts to interrupt me again, but I head her off at the pass… “And okay, yes, you should probably not stare at the gentlemen in speedos or any other person for that matter. Some do wear speedos or bike shorts or shorts up to their armpits, but do NOT stare, point or laugh PLEASE!!!” I'm trying to wear my sternest expression.
"The flotation devices are mostly for the elderly so please make sure you don't take the last one if you just want to paddle your feet. Oh, and the water volleyball? Unless you can promise that you have the ability not to hit the older swimmers, please refrain. They are very easy to knock out. Please don't ask me how I know this. Just chalk it up to a youthful blunder and leave it at that. The Styrofoam noodles are not for Jedi Master training, nor are they used as a type of baseball bat. Please just be mindful of your manners." I'm thinking to myself, 'Gawd, I hope I covered every eventuality!'
