Swimming manners

I went swimming this morning and the ladies who don't get their hair wet were out in force! They swam side by side, up and down the lanes in a surreal fashion, never pausing from their conversation to breath. (It is a little upsetting when you don your goggles, swim hat and earplugs and swim properly only to be overtaken by a breast-stroking lady whose head is firmly above the surface!).

In the changing rooms later there was a furore as apparently one of the other swimmers had asked the ladies to move over. This had not gone down too well and the ladies were incensed as they didn't think this particular swimmer was any quicker than them! There then followed a 10 minute discussion on lane etiquette!
