This gym-goer was in the middle of a squat when he felt a tap on his shoulder. He had no understanding of what she wanted at first, but after stopping what he was doing and taking off his headphones, he began to piece it together and understood she was asking that he relocate so she could film a video. Redditor u/Striking-Stick-2355, who is the male who was squatting, started this thread on the r/AITA (Am I the A-Hole) subreddit. He’s wondering if his response to the influencer’s demands, which was to stay exactly where he was for as long as possible, was incorrect. The billboard explains that if someone approached him with kindness and respect, he would generally move for them. “Now, if someone comes to me with a positive attitude and asks if it’s okay for me to stop for a series or two so they can film or even switch machines,” u/Striking-Stick-2355 continues, “I wouldn’t mind and cooperate.”
u/Striking-reaction Stick-2355’s is a well-justified response from where we’re sitting, therefore this post could simply be reframed and uploaded to r/pettyrevenge. OP had to ask the sub Reddit AITA whether he did the right thing. Scroll down to see images of the thread and people’s reactions.
