Man throws himself into pool fully clothed to protest membership notice, wins


40-year-old Ian Whitfield dived into the pool at David LLoyd Gym in Darenth Road, Dartford, UK, in his business suit after being told he had to serve three months notice to terminate his membership. He and his partner had missed the deadline with a few days, and faced with having to pay £300, he starting handing out leaflets at the gym, warning other people to be on the lookout. The manager took him into his office, told him they could discuss this, but since nothing happened, Withfield decided to throw himself into the swimming pool fully clothed. He drove home soaking wet, and then received a call telling him the notice period would be waived as long as he did not step foot in the gym again. “I’ve won the battle”, Whitfield said.
