    I do zumba in my clean scrubs. The scrubs were purchased by me, and they are not designated for work use. If someone approached me while I was working out to determine if they were clean, I would laugh too.
    I would laugh and then say "please find gym clothes as comfortable AND cheap as these scrubs and I will change to please your whims"

    Give me a break. Who walks up to someone working out and questions their attire? DO NOT go to the gym if you are worried at all about germs.

    you're SUPPOSED to worry about germs in a hospital. do you not wear gloves, masks, etc for protection against germs? I realize exposure to germs is inevitable in the setting, but being cautious to minimize it is important.

    Your lucky that person didn't punch you in the face. You were definitely the rude one here. None of your business what other people wear.

    so if someone came to work out in their undies that wouldn't be my business? it is my business if I'm using the same machines with him. he's in a public place and he has the right to wear what he wants, but why is it wrong for me to ask him if it's clean if it concerns my own safety??

    I wonder if butchers or sanitation workers have these conversations. On discussion boards.

    If you want to argue about whether or not it was your business, whatever, not going to change the mind of someone like you. But it isn't your prerogative to approach someone about it -- that falls on the owners of the business or, in your underwear example, the police.

    Not gonna lie, if I didn't value my lack of a criminal record, I would just deck you.

    Haha I love this. I think you are a nut to be approaching strangers about something as trivial as this. I'd hate to see your reaction about something actually serious
