I had a guy do this to me today, after he finished every Machine Bench Press set, he would walk back and fourth behind me while I'm trying to OH Press.

Man I totally agree. I love working out at the house. I get to use my own equipment whenever the heck I want to. No worries about using equipment that is covered in someone elses sweat.

Didn't you miss the rule that goes something like "Every plate has a specific spot. 25s don't go with the 35s and there shouldn't be 5s and 10s spread out through the 45s. Nothing will get your blood boiling like having to pull four 25s and a 35 off before I can get to a 45 plate"

Don’t drape your precious towel or leave a water bottle on it and walk away to chat. If no ones around, I count to 30 before your possessions go flying and I start lifting.
these two for sure!!

grrrrrrr..YES...I stop between sets to fix my bench rack to stack correctly the freaking plates. That's probably a good thing when I'm in the house. My plate tree is always organized. But again...we cannot enclose ourselves 24/7 because all these people.
