Welp, looks like I can cross “Set off the ‘Lunk Alarm’ in the ‘non-judgment zone’.” off my bucket list now.
I have officially achieved lunk status!
How did I achieve lunk status, you ask?
It was pretty easy.
I put down 150lbs of dumbells a little less gently than I intended.
This isn’t to say I was clumsy or dropped them, only that 150lbs of iron can be difficult to set down without making any noise — especially on a surface that is usually covered with rubber weight mats, but isn’t. O_O
Apparently, the amount of noise I made was enough incentive for someone (or some thing) to decide that it was worth disrupting the entire facility by blasting a loud siren in order to alert everyone to the fact that I made some noise while putting down some weights in a gym.
