    A lawyer will be a waste of time and money....if you can even find one to take your case. They often won't unless it's a friend, since there's no money in it. They only like injuries...and you...

    Some guy tried to pull this **** the other day. I really hate spotting people on incline anyway 'cause I feel like I'm too damn short and I can't get close enough w/out teabagging a MF'r.

    That will probably do for now.

    I'm not a desserts/sweets type person, I just have a problem not asking for 2nd's, 3rd's and/or 4th's. lol.

    I really liked the article too, and I also appreciate the "motivational" type stuff. It's like a breath like a breath of fresh air to see such a genuine concern for sharing insight/information here....

    I don't. lol. I might work around a few things and try it one day, but I'm not really that worried about it.
