I know I shouldn't either. But admitting that you can't swim is somewhat like admitting that you can't read; publicly trying to learn to swim is like sitting in a library as an adult sounding out See Spot Run. Everyone has the right to the library, but people can't help but judge even when they're doing it sympathetically.
