In-Shape Fat Guys

I try and get to the gym at least a few times a week and I see quite a few in-shape fat guys. One of the discouraging factors is the bigger gentlemen who refuse to bring a towel and wipe their foul-smelling sweat off the machines, benches, and the like.
How hard can it be?
I’m far from a germaphobe but I have to draw the line somewhere. What gets me even worse is the overall attitude of these beach gorillas. They walk around like somebody just made them the cover model of Men’s Health. They stick their chest out so far it looks like you could take a pin, poke them and they would fly around the gym as if you failed to properly tie an inflated balloon.
Their workout routine is something like this: Curls, look in the mirror, bench press, look in the mirror, shoulder shrugs, and you guessed it, look in the mirror.
Alot of the big guys at the gym are extremely friendly, offer encouragement, AND BRING A TOWEL! It’s the brutish few who ruin it for the rest of us.
