Gym's Rule #1
Gym's Rule 1: For any occupied locker there shall be an equally position locker occupant within elbow length of that occupant al all times no matter how empty the locker room happens to be; at times there may be more but no less than one.
This law is to be enforced at all times especially during holidays. There is definitely no exceptions during the tourist season. Tourist season begins early January and last about six weeks.
Any discussion, request, statements to escaping this law is just an act of futility. Please refrain from asking Gym owner or manager to assist you in any way to alleviate or adjust this law. Congress cannot change this law. They have their own gym where no rule like this is applied.
Your best bet is to enjoy the day and wait for the tourist season to end. Until then please repeat the following phrase for comfort.
"Life is too short to be upset over locker space."
(Repeat to yourself as many times as needed)
