I decided following ricochets rant about shopping, to change the title of the thread.
No-one likes a whiner, but its better to do it here I suppose than at home/bar/work.
So, Ill show you mine...

I'm in the fitness centre this morning, there are some communal scrubbing type-cloths for washing. Some guy hawks up one or three good ones, drops them in the middle of the shower room, then picks up one of the communal cloths, wipes it up, then replaces it back on the shower tap for the next patron.

why?

Confused

I didnt even notice your spelling.

Its the idea! I have never ever seen a facility that expected people to share scrub cloths & I cant imagine yours does either.

Still laughing. Either the OP missed the pile of clean scrub cloths, deals with the grossest shower room in Korea, or is having us on (most likely).

Ill help you out (I put some letters on there for my convenience);

The answer is 'B'.

The gym has about 6 body cleaning cloths, which are shared by being left in the shower room.

I believe you mean clothes, optik. I mean, after all, that's what we're talking about here.
