No! I’m not advocating voyeurism. I am simply pointing out that how things could go wrong in a public pool, without having your glasses on.
I went to an indoor public pool along with my partner, but without my glasses. This time, I decided to remove it, in order to swim more freely. So I left it in the locker of the changing room.
I went to the sauna first, and amidst the thick steam I saw a man sitting on the bench not knowing it was a piece of towel left over there. I said hi, and started to complain how hot the weather, the sauna, and the girls around have become!
A bit embarrassed at finding out I was talking to a piece of towel, I left sauna and took a shower and looked around to find my partner. I saw her at other side of the smaller pool, and waved to her with a big smile asking her with body language to join me to go to the bigger pool; not knowing she is another lady with the same color of swimming suit.
She actually came to me and asking me who am I and what hell is going on, and I explained that I mistook her, since i was without my glasses. But believe me convincing my partner who was observing me from further distance, wasn’t that easy!
After convincing both ladies that there was no ill-intension behind my act, I decided to end this agony and go to pick my glasses from the locker.
From the exit section of the changing rooms, the only available signs to read were brutally small; so that without my glasses, I could only managed to see a mixture of the letters: “F, A, M, L,..”. That was enough for me to realize that I am heading to the “FAMILY changing room”, where our locker was located; not knowing I was heading to “FEMALE changing room”. It took me a couple of harsh ‘excuse me’s and gasps and ‘heyyyyy’s and so, to realize that I am in wrong place.
When I came out of the female changing room, despite that I couldn’t see that well, I could feel a silence and surprised looks around me; especially from the parents who used to sit and watch their kids take swimming lessons, as if I was the only man emerging from a crowded female changing room so nonchalant.
Yesterday, wasn’t my day, but I learnt some lessons: I never go to public pool without my glasses. Never, without my glasses!
