Gym shower temporarily out of order for 97th day in a row

A GYM has redefined the concept of ‘temporary’ after a shower has been ‘temporarily out of order’ for more than a quarter of a year.

The staff at the gym in Swindon noticed there was a problem with one of the showers in the ladies changing room after eight women separately told them it was not working, and they immediately put up a laminated sign.

Gym manager Wayne Hayes said; “We take our clients’ feedback very seriously and we are currently looking into ways that we can troubleshoot the shower situation.

“I’d like to reassure people that it will be fixed as soon as it is humanly possible for me to be bothered to do something about it”.

The sign, which was double-laminated to ensure longevity, has withstood the steam from the shower next to it.

Gym member Eleanor Shaw said: “I pay £45 a month for this gym mainly to do twenty minutes on the cross trainer and then have a nice long shower that won’t add to my electricity bill.

“If a shower isn’t available, it kind of makes all the gym fees feel pointless.”
