Scene: RJ is throwing Bauer's ball across the dining room and I am on the treadmill. Also located in the dining room.
Me: Did you see that?
RJ: See what?
Me: Did you see the speed of the treadmill spike?
Right after I said this the treadmill picks up speed again for 2-3 seconds and then settles back to it's programmed speed.
Me: See? There is something wrong with it. It looks like it's between 2.3 and 3 mph that it randomly speeds up.
RJ: Maybe it thinks you should work a little harder.
Me: You can leave now!
