What’s the grossest thing you’ve ever seen at a pool, public, hotel or otherwise?
Whatever it is, it likely doesn’t come close to this incident, which took place at a public bath in Florida recently.
A video has been posted on social forum Reddit of a woman happily and openly shaving her legs in a busy swimming pool, as kids swim and play just a few feet away.
Making matters worse, no one seems to care – except the cameraman. Since its posting, the video has been upvoted some 55,000 times on the site and attracted no less than 1,600 comments.
"Imagine the inadvertent gulp of water that sometimes happens when you're swimming.. with all the shaved hair in it," one commenter said.
Another added: "I used to lifeguard at a YMCA so figured I've seen it all until this video. If public pools have taught me anything, it's that people are disgusting animals."
A commenter who had worked at a public pool claimed that “for whatever reason they attract the worst of humanity”.
"I would never swim in a public pool after that experience."
For your viewing (dis)pleasure, here’s the clip.
