Why can't guys behave ??

What is it with guys ? Why are they so unruly and ill-behaved ?

I am in a different city. Came to the swimming pool here. Was not sure of the ladies batch timings , and reached the pool an hour too early. And the guard who issues the tickets looked away when I asked him for a ticket ... and when I asked him again , he said : "M'am it is not the ladies batch yet." . I asked him if there was a problem. He again looked away and said:" I'd advise you not to go in this batch. You can never predict what the guys can do".

Damn ! Every pool in every city in India has just 1 batch for women and about 5 batches for men , in addition to common bacthes throughout the day. why the injustice ? Dont women enjoy swimming as much as men ??

If only guys could behave well, would have been in the pool and not writing this article. I still have 45 minutes to go before I can enter the pool. Hopefully, it wont rain then !!

You could've always strolled around the neighbourhood instead of blogging about it ;). I suppose there are more batches for men because they form a larger percentage of people who swim. And hey, swimming in the rain is fun :D

Dont take loads.....Enjoy rains.
And if you are not getting enough pools to swim then just FLY AWAY!!!

Different city?

Well, I guess this depends on many factors. I remember the swimming pool where we used to go had teenagers swimming in one batch. I mean, imagine teenage girls and boys, all in the pool at the same time. Then imagine what can go wrong.

Then remember the dear old Murphy :D

Hmm..a Hitech Pool u have got :-)
Cyber @Pool side...wonderful 'different' city u r in ;-)

Well...I have been to 2-3 pools out here, n seen both ladies n gents in a same pool.
yes, theres a seperate batch for ladies...
But..I don't know Y 'can't guys behave well' be slapped on all guys.
Maybe its coz we r brought up like this 'both sexes shudn't be in a pool', memorable teasing scenes ..thanks to bollywood , The reserved thinking of our culture etc.
I tell you, guys are well behaved in pools :-)

Cheers

Injustice? Talking to the pool owners/coordinators wud help?

And - Rules might have been made acc to the number of ppl coming for pool? more men?

But personally - rivers are better :)

burf said...

i thought it is fun swimming in rain

tho i aint much of a swimmer

praveen said...

hmmm wat can I say...
better luck nxt time...

Michelle said...

lol...i like my gym because most of the amenities are more in favour for women :P there are like 5 batches specially for women and one for the men

Poison said...

thats generalizing na :)

Sujit said...

everyone is not like that, but even a single instance we can't predict the consequence, so its the mindset of the people to take care by rules.

AnonymousBlogger said...

I'll be honest. Here in Canada, that sort of thing doesn't happen. Not saying we're perfect here. Far from it. But all in all, I'd say there is at least a little more respect for women from men.

mathew said...

i guess thats what they swimming against the tide!! ;-P

Ujwal said...

Daman said...

Guys will be guys but girls... Have a look at this http://cgpa.biz/swimming.html

Anil P said...

A mob is just that . . . a mob.

niki yokota said...

awww thats discrimination!
they should treat women well..

Juhi Varun Dhingra said...

I totally agree with u...if only men could behave.

Ajith said...

blame it on hormones :)

Abhishek Upadhyay said...

Hahaha.

Hope times will change and more women line up for pool.Then there will be 4-5 batches for females and only one for male.
What the watchman told is true...you never know how spoiled brats will behave with a lone(beautiful?)female.

sorry to hear that.
most of indian guys misbehave. unfortunate but true.
not to defend, but there is another part of the story. In india guys and gals live in isolated world, so most guys see girls as objects of desire, not as normal human beings.

luckily i have never heard of batching in swimming pools here in ca.

Hi! My name is Project 71. Weird name I know, but my masters are weird too. My masters apologize for such an out-of-context comment and they know how painful such spamlike comments are. But, say masters, how else are we to present something good to the world. By that they mean me :D. Kindly see what I am about. Won't take you more than 22s to read... http://www.project71.com/readme Enjoyy!

MANY MORE HAPPY RETURN OF D DAY...MAy all ur wish come tru...Happy B'day

Renjith said...

gotta do somethign with numbers i guess.

1) maybe there is more men going to a swimming pool than women. so they have more batches. but it may also be true that unruly behavior of men is keeping women at home.

2) the misbehavior in this case is when a women walks into a large group of men. The same i think hold good for a man who walks into a large group of women. Ask any man who dared to wlk into a womens college answer that.

Having said that i agree that behavior of indian men have to improve a lot and it may have to do with social values. Though we harp on Indian value and moral high grouds, Its true that men in general treat women as objects of desire

I feel that ur post is the question right on the face of people claiming gender equality has finally arrived

Anyways i am back to blogging ways. ;) that is if u remember me from long back

Amit said...

Heyyyyyy! Loooong time.. did you get a cellphone yet? ;)

Known Stranger said...

no sound??

Priyankari said...

Very true! I have often wondered the same!

Starry-eyed Shruti said...

That's a big question. Men don't behave...they don't know how to. And we girls suffer almost everyday :-(
