What kind of society is this? Are businesses not allowed to make rules now? Of course it's all about her. Who cares about the other members who have to listen to her stupid calls.

“This is a member that’s had repeated issues and incidents with cell phone use,” Kablik told The Boston Herald.“I can assure you that our manager would not be treating a member poorly. Her reaction, when she was approached in a professional way, was extremely unprofessional and rude and dismissive.”

Planet Fitness is known for having a strict no cell phone rule in their workout areas, MyFoxBoston.com reports.

Here's Crassus again begging for ANY kind of attention he can get. He reminders me of one of those whiny little lap dogs that keep humping your leg to get your attention.

Since when did the cell phone become the "cigarette" of the 21st century.? As for what they can tell you to do, as much as I hate loud cell talkers, unless they are paying my bill they have zero right to tell me what to do with my property.

If an organization has a rule that applies to everyone(non-disriminatory) and you know about the rule when you sign up to join, later violating that rule, you take the consequences.

I suppose it is your right to talk loudly on your cell phone at the movie theater, or opera, or at a play, or in the hospital in intensive care, etc. and so on.

Yes, it is your property, but the rest of us have some expectation of civility as well.

On private property we DO have the right to tell you what you can and cannot do.

Although most people had a mommy and daddy to teach them respect for others - sorry that you didn't.

Nope, you don't. Not when it comes to my cell phone and mind you, I HATE talking on the damn thing, I am not one of those people you would have a problem with.

If I own something, you don't control it, want to control it? Pay my bill otherwise, MYOB.

The stigmatization of cell phones has gone WAY too far now. It wont hurt your precious ears to hear someone who does NOT abuse the phone take a quick call.

I am the type that gets penalized for this kind of behavior, if my wife calls me to ask me a quick question and I am under 10 seconds on the phone, that is none of your business. Kick me out if you want, but you better be ready for the bad press and lawsuits.

see what you get with a FREE obama phone.

Good for the gym, stand up to these liberal free loaders.
