The Interrupted Workout

At the gym that Amanda and I use, there is an area with normal weight lifting machines and then a separate room for classes. This room is available all the time after work except for Tuesday and Thursday from 5:15p to 6:30p. When I went to the gym yesterday (Thursday) I, however, thought the class was from 5:30p to 6:30p and was planning to finish things before then.  To my surprise and dismay, I had to deal with the crotchety old instructor kicking me out 15 minutes early and disrupting my workout groove.  He moved my kettlebells to the door and went to take apart my step before I stopped him!  I would normally be more than OK with relocating and was planning to anyway, but his rudeness really caught me off guard.  I always try to be very considerate of other people in the gym, but this class only had four people to fill the huge area and we could have easily shared the room for the final 15 minutes.

Anyone else have to deal with rude people in the gym?
