Open Letter: Accidental Ass Grab
To the man who shared my lane in the “Medium” speed of the Embarcadero Y pool last night, around 7:30PM. I’m sorry I grabbed your ass.
It was unintentional. My arm reached out in a classic freestyle stroke- I think I was alternate side breathing at that point- and made contact with your surfer style swim shorts. Odd choice, for a swimmer, to wear those kind of shorts now that I think of it. I was surprised as I had no intention of making contact and thought that since you were swimming so much faster than me, fast enough to pass me, that I would never make contact. So I guess you cut me off. In the swim lane. It can be frustrating when there’s a master class hogging up three lanes and us normal people have to swim in the other lanes. I know your fast lane was taken, and I’m sorry for you. I just hope you can swim faster next time you try to pass someone so they don’t get an unintentional fistful of Tommy Bahama.
