    I got the gist of what he was saying, lol….She should have given him other options for charging the phone, if the computer wasn’t an option. Not to mention, the gyms I’ve been in sell charges and the likes so why wouldn’t they be able to accommodate him charging his phone. Find a new gym, Jimmy!

    Sorry but Jimmy sounds like a whole fool. In no way did anyone profile him. They told him to get way from them with that mess of trying to charge his phone on their computer; end of story and he got in his little feelings!!!!! Save rallying behind someone for profiling when it really is profiling and this ain’t it!!!! All that happen here was a difference of opinion and people not know how to talk to each other plus some hurt feelings. Move on people nothing to see here.

      Maybe he’s done it before and/or have seen other customers do it and that’s why he feels he was profiled or refused assistance. Where did “he flipped me off” come from and even if he did, so what?! And why was he called a simple person? Jim don’t seem like the type to be bothered by much.

      I have to agree. I don’t see how he was profiled . . . .
