“I’m so unfamiliar with my gym that I have started calling it Mr. James”

"Gym” sounds like the personal name “Jim” (a male name for “James"). “A buddy and I used to call the gym “the James” because we didn’t know it well enough to call it Jim” was posted on Twitter on September 10, 2009. “I go to the gym so infrequently that I still call it the James” was posted on Twitter by Alec Sulkin‏ on April 7, 2013.

It’s a posh gym though, we call it a James (think about it gym (jim!)). That was bad I know.
