To the college student at the gym:

Seriously? You're going to talk on your cell phone while squatting on a gigantic bouncy-ball in front of the lockers, thereby blocking access to eight out of twenty lockers? And you're going to keep mindlessly chatting about wrapping up your semester at Marymount while I tediously check several of the remaining lockers to see if any of those are not already filled with gear?

Some people are totally clueless, and some are just selfish.

Did you say bouncy-ball? Very kickable, it would seem. Then, as the offended party looks up at you all huffy, you could say something semi-clever like "I had to knock you down a peg, locker blocker" or "Now bounce, preppie."

You should really let me write your daily dialogue.

Yep, cell phones are the new umbilical cord that just does not come off!

There's a wonderful scene from The Office when one character, irritated by his co-worker's bouncy ball, stabs it with a pair of scissors. I think that would have been an appropriate response in this case.

I'm with Neel. You advertise yourself as Angry, so tell her to move (or be passive-aggressive and walk by her close enough to kick her ball).

cell phones should be banned in locker rooms!

aren't there enough reasons to avoid locker rooms without bouncy-balls, cell phones, and jerks?
