    Oh, men have mood swings. They prefer to refer to them as "dealing with stress" instead.


    It's still early enough that nothing has happened today, but I did want to post a pet peeve that I encounter regularly at work: people who know jack shit about nutrition coming into the store and asking for diet pills that will work NOW. Now, sure, they see ads and they all tend to come in there with that attitude and I have to explain how diet pills work and that even if they were to work some magic it's only temporary, and that the real way to achieve their goals is proper nutrition and regular exercise. But some people get stupid about it. Real stupid. The dumbest one to date was some younger guy that came in...

    Him: "I know all these work better if you're doing diet and exercise, but is there a pill that works if you're just laying around the house all day?"
    Me: "Well, to be honest, if there was a pill that worked that way, all the other companies would be put out of business. But you can certainly try them, see if it works, and if it doesn't you can keep your receipt, return it, and try another one."
    Him: "Can I take them with alcohol?"
    Me: "Well, kinda defeats the...[I kinda give up trying to explain stuff to him]...yeah, sure. These are uppers, alcohol's a downer, so yeah. It's like a Jager Bomb...an upper and a downer. It should be fine."
    Him: "What's a Jager Bomb?"
    Me: "It's an energy drink plus a shot of Jager. I was just trying to use it as an example to show that you can take an upper and a downer at the same time."
    Him: "Upper and downer?"
    Me: "An 'upper' is something that gives you more energy. It's a stimulant. A 'downer' is a depressant."
    Him: "So what about the alcohol?"
    Me: "It's a depressant."
    Him: "Then what's with the energy drink?"
    Me [getting more annoyed]: "It was just an example. Just don't worry about taking the diet pill with alcohol."
    Him: "You know what? Eff this, I'm just going to stop eating."
    Some Muscular Guy In Earshot: "Don't do that, man. Your body will just eat its muscle and you'll get even flabbier." [walks off]
    Me: "That gentleman is right."
    Him: "How the hell does that even make sense?"
    Me: "[explains]"
    Him: "That's stupid, I don't believe you."
    Me: "Well, you're not arguing with me, you're arguing with biological fact, so..."
    Him: "If that were true, then all the starving kids in Africa would be fat! They're all skinny!"
    Me: "That's because they have absolutely nothing available to them to eat, and they're also diseased. And they die when they're, like, 6 years old. If you're comfortable with not eating and getting sick and dying soon, then yeah, more power to you."

    I then went to help other customers, and he followed me to listen in on something I was saying about protein powder.
    Him: "If that stuff's so great, then why should I drink water?"
    Me: "Because you're 75% water and you'd die without it."
    Him: "Then why should I drink protein?"
    Me: "You don't have to drink protein, but you do need to get protein in your diet."
    Him: "No, I want to drink that stuff. So why should I?"
    Me: "Protein repairs cells. If you managed to never get protein in your diet, you'd just end up dying."
    Him: "So why should I drink water?"
    Me: "It's not one or the other. You need protein, carbs, fats, water..."
    Him: "Well, I just want one."
    Me: "Go for it."

    The dude later went on to threaten me, so I chewed his ass and kicked him out of the store.

    "but my mate said I only need to bicep curls with 5kg for 15reps and not to go
    any heavier" (note this is after I just given him a massive physiology talk)

    "but you haven't got a pec dec machine"
    me - "and?"
    "there the most hardcore machine in gyms"
    me - "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH"

    "which cardio machine will help me bulk up?"

    pointing a mag cover of jay cutler "I don't want to get that big"
    I exlpain how it just won't happen "yeh but I don't want to risk it"

    For fucking serious, man. I deal with that shit, too. I have two responses for those people.

    "You know, I'm trying to add mass. The fact that you think it's so easy that you'll get big on accident spits in the face of everything that I do, from my specific diet to my specific lifting regimen to my specific recovery time."

    OR

    "You know what? If you put on a whole crap-load of muscle in a month, here's what you do: go down to the [local medical research university] and have them do a muscle biopsy. Then, extract whatever magic you have with your genetics that you think you can add 10lbs of muscle in a week [people honestly say this], and then bottle it and sell it to me, because I have to work my ass off. If you're putting on 10lbs of muscle just because you did a set of squats, you're not genetically-gifted...you're made of magic and I want some."

    Seriously, some people fucking believe they can add 5-10lbs of muscle just because they used the leg press, I fucking shit you not. They honestly believe this.

    Juicy, I gotta have patience. I was in the Marine Corps...you learn to bite your tongue!

    That's because those early birds just got out of bed and went straight to the gym without showering.

    After I determine if he is a mystery or secret shopper, I would have ejected him from the premises for being stupid and wasting my time. I'm all for customer service but this guy is nuts. He threatened you? I would ban his ass from the store and have security nearby if shows up again.

    Today, I dealt with a guy who repeatedly emphasized he wanted my opinion, help, and expertise, who then proceeded to interrupt me pretty much every time I started talking.
