This pool seemed fine, and I was happy that it even had private changing stalls, so you don't need to get naked in front of strangers. I never liked how the locker room was always so crowded in the gym.
So I paid, went in, put my stuff in a locker, and went to look for the shower I'd use before going in. The only ones were by the pool, with no soap. I asked a staff person what was going on, and he said that if I wanted to shower with soap before swimming, I was welcome to use the showers upstairs, but people generally just rinsed with water.
I felt so disgusted I just left. This is a popular pool, and there were lots of people in it even then! I would not want to immerse my face in water that hundreds of unwashed people have wallowed through!
Thoughts? Am I just being germophobic? Or would you do the same?
