Beacon hill Goodlife yesterday, I'm on the treadmill closest to the front door, it's the one I usually use because I like to see the hot chicks come and go. It's a Thursday, at 11:30am. So I'm running there, and I see this guy walk in, there's nobody at the front counter to scan his membership. Unless it's a weekend, the staff tends to stick the scanner up on the counter and fuck off to the back to chat.. I digress. Anyways, this guy comes in and even before anything happens I'm watching him and thinking to myself, that dude looks REALLY out of place here. Ripped ass jeans, haggard facial hair, a big puffy jacket (it was warm as fuck outside) and ball cap on. No gym bag, no water bottle, nothing. So I didn't give it much thought really, he goes to the locker room and comes out about 5 mins later and heads out the door. I figured he's maybe meeting an employee about a delivery or something, I dunno. Finish my run about 5 mins after this guy leaves, go to my locker, and the fucken lock is cut off. This beater stole my wallet, and my iPhone 4S that I kept in my bag as an iPod. Also took my GoodLife key tag and a bag of pre-workout (wtf???) Another two lockers got hit too, and from what the guys said he took a phone and their wallets as well.
Call up visa, keep in mind my card was missing now for no more than 15 mins. They had already charged $1000 in Air canada tickets and some other online shit. Cancelled the cards, my debit card, etc. Now I'm out a wallet, need a new ID, etc. What a pain in the dick. Only had about $20 cash in there and he will maybe get $30 for the iPod with a cracked screen.
Called the cops, we all did police reports, they were gonna pull the tapes. I guess why he stole my gym tag was because he will use it now to get into another gym past the gate. I already had it cancelled and got a new one tho, but they weren't interested in "flagging" my old one in case he tried to use it.
What really chaps my ass, is Goodlife's blah-zeé attitude toward the whole thing. Sure you have a sign saying articles are left at my own risk, but why the FUCK is a guy like that even getting into the locker room unabated anyways?? Should I not be able to be confident that if I LOCK shit in a locker in your gym that it'll be safe there?? For fucks sake. Have someone look at the fucking screen when someone swipes in and make sure they match the key tag by comparing them to a photo. Is that too much to ask? Every other gym has no problem doing it.
Anyways, I'm out a couple hours of time and an iPod. That's not the point tho. Some fuckin degenerate helped himself to MY shit that I worked hard to pay for, and I'm livid. I'm not a meathead, but had I caught him in the act I would have raged. How nobody in the locker room saw him is beyond me either. That place is always busy.
At least he didn't take my truck keys... in the future that's where I'll be leaving all my valuables.
