ok... this always pisses me off, and i know that people do this intentionally but it just makes ZERO sense in my mind... when putting weights on the bar or on the rack. WHY do people stack 'em with the flat side OUT? the side with the words is inset a little so there is a "lip" on the edge that allows for easy one-handed removal from the bar/stack. probably 9/10x im getting weights off the stack some jackass has put it flat side out. so instead of just snagging a plate off with one hand, i then have to grab both sides of the plate and wiggle it off so that theres enough room between it and the next plate that i can even get a grip on it.
REALLY gets on my nerves b/c people OBVIOUSLY rack 'em like that on purpose and it would be just as easy to rack it the other way and would make getting the weights off so much quicker.
*i know... its a little detail but it's a pet-peeve of mine*
