Just wondering, because the other guy in this equation looked rather surprised. I was at the Y this morning using the strenght machines and I was down to my last thing, the pull down machine. And as I got there I saw another guy sitting there, so I thought, I'll just wait until he is done. But he was not using the machine, he was looking at his phone. So I thought, maybe it is some exercise app. So I waited a bit more, and got a little closer. He was just sitting there texting. So after I had waited about 5 minutes I went up to him and said; "Excuse me, but would you mind if I sat there and got my last exercise in while you test someplace else?" He first said "What?" so I repeated. He then said, looking rather shocked that I asked this "OK" and went and sat on the machine just behind me, to continue texting, while looking at me. I finished my 10 reps, said thank you and left. Every now and then since this occurred I have wondered what the gym etiquette is supposed to be, should I have waited, or should he have been texting elsewhere?
