What is worse: Public restroom neighbor or treadmill neighbor?

What is worse: when someone goes into the stall/uses the urinal right next to you in a public restroom when all the other stalls/urinals are available or when someone gets right next to you on the treadmill when other treadmills are available?

Ok, I have to declare a biased answer to this question. When a man comes up and uses the urinal next to me when all the others are open, it usually is because he's flirting ... and it gives me a quick glance to notice the goods.

So obviously, the treadmill thing is worse.

I don't exercise in the vertical position, so I can't comment on the treadmill. Just you lesbos who think they can get a piece of the world's first supermodel! (To which it is a case-by-case basis.)

totally the treadmill is more annoying. i hate when sweaty people i don't know are too close to me.

i don't consider myself a treadmill expert... but treadmill neighbor sounds way worse.

I don't mind the treadmill thing. In fact, when a pretty lady gets on a treadmill near me, it's a bit of inspiration to stick it out for 5 more minutes.

Not to try to pick her up because there is no place of earth I look worse than a gym. It's more the carrot at the end of the stick.

Definitely the urinal. Stage fright sucks. When I'm on the treadmill, I'm in my own world and I'm not noticing the people around me. Besides, everyone's sweaty. That's what happens when people work out.

Public restroom is definitely worse. If someone is going to violate my space like that, I prefer they be fully clothed.

i am competitive so i think i use treadmill neighbors as motivation. but i go on a treadmill maybe once a year. bathroom neighbors are pretty bad. i like having at least the illusion of privacy.
