The 17 Most Annoying People You’ll Meet in a Sauna

Going to the sauna is supposed to be a relaxing, rejuvenating experience… But let’s face it, we’ve all encountered those annoying characters who seem to ruin the whole thing..!

Here are 17 of the most annoying people you might encounter in a sauna:

1. The Chatty Cathy

This person just won’t stop talking. No matter how much you try to zone out or relax, they just keep yapping away about their latest vacation, their work problems, or their family drama. By the time you leave the sauna, you’ll feel like you’ve heard their entire life story.

2. The Door Forgetter

This person always forgets to close the door when they enter or exit the sauna. As a result, cold air rushes in, the temperature drops, and everyone else has to endure the icy blast. And when you politely remind them to close the door, they just give you a blank stare and say, “Oops, sorry!”

3. The Sweat Hog

This person hogs all the sweat. No matter how hard you’re working to create a good sweat, they’re always one step ahead of you. They’re sweating profusely, their skin is glistening, and they’re practically drenched. And when you try to take a turn in the corner of the upper bench, they give you a death glare and say, “Hey, that’s my spot!”

4. The Sauna Singer

This person loves to sing in the sauna. And we’re not talking about a little hum or whistle. No, this person belts out full-blown songs, complete with hand gestures and facial expressions. They’re so loud and enthusiastic, it’s like they’re performing in front of a live audience.

6. The Sauna Sprayer

This person sprays water all over the place. They douse the rocks, they splash their fellow sauna-goers, they even spray the walls and ceiling. And when you give them a concerned look, they just say, “It helps to create more steam!”

7. The Sauna Sloth

This person takes up way too much space in the sauna. They sprawl out, they take up two benches, and they hog all the room. And when you try to squeeze in next to them, they give you a rude look and say, “Can’t you see I’m trying to relax here?”

10. The Sauna Snob

This person looks down on everyone else in the sauna. They think they’re better than you, they think they know more about sauna-ing, and they think they’re entitled to special treatment. And when you try to engage them in conversation, they just give you a snooty look and say, “I’m sorry, I prefer to keep to myself in the sauna.”

14. The Sauna Sprinter

This person is always in a rush in the sauna. They stay for a few minutes, they get up, they leave, and then they come back again. They repeat this process over and over, making it impossible for anyone else to get into a rhythm. And when you ask them what they’re doing, they just say, “I’m trying to get the most out of my sauna session!”

17. The Sauna Self-Tanner

This person brings their self-tanning lotion into the sauna. They slather it all over their skin, they turn orange, and they make it look like they’ve been sunbathing in the sauna. And when you give them a surprised look, they just say, “I like to get a head start on my tan!”
