Last night I went to the pool for my Saturday night swim. Yes, I swim Saturday evenings. Then come home and go to bed. I live an exciting life, and I know you are jealous. ;)
Except this Saturday I didn't swim, because the lane pool was closed. Because... somebody had pooed in the pool.
Yeah. It happens. And you know what? In another day, I'll be back in that pool regardless. How's that for standards?
You just can't think too hard about what goes in the pool. At least when there's visible poo, they know they need to add chemicals and do whatever they do. Don't think too hard about all the unshowered people and toddlers in diapers. Or the clumps of hair and other floaties.
Thank goodness for chlorine.
And some people get freaked out by swimming in open water where there's weeds...
