Speak Up: How Do You Deal With Rude People at the Gym?

My bike was in the shop for a tune-up, but my legs were itching to ride. So I decided to hit the gym and take a spinning class. The noon slot is especially busy, so I went 15 minutes early and waited outside the class door until the previous class let out. Well it looks like some guy had the same plan, and he was also waiting outside. As soon as the door swung open and the sweaty folks made their way out, he bolted in the room, and practically pushed me into the water cooler. His rudeness really put a damper on my mood. I mean we're not in kindergarten racing to see who gets to the slide first. I guess it's to be expected when sharing a gym with hundreds of other people, but it's still frustrating. Does this ever happen to you? If so, how do you deal with rude people at the gym?
