Open letter to the person in charge at our (maybe) new gym:
I would like to start by saying that you have a great facility. Fabulous instructors so far, a wonderful class offering, awesome machines and lovely locker rooms. Helpful staff, great babysitting room--I could go on and on.
There is one complaint I would like to lodge. It pertains to your pool.
Usually when people swim they like to see where they are going. You know, a few feet ahead of them and all that? So you don't smack your head on the wall. Or bump into someone else who you can't see until you are on top of them.
You see, we went for a swim tonight. And it was a pretty good thing there was no one else in either of the lanes we swam in. Considering that there was so much chlorine in the pool it looked almost like lemonade. I exaggerate slightly, but you see the point.
Cloudy with a chance of collision. With the wall.
Please mention to the person who is responsible for maintaining the pool that when chlorinating, the idea is not to kill every living germ in any and every body of water within a 30 mile radius. Including the Atlantic Ocean.
Probably not a deal breaker, but it does give one pause when considering switching from a facility whose pool is it's main attraction.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
Itchy swimmer with a huge bump on her head.
