As someone who has suffered with mental health issues myself, I can tell you that partnering with strangers in situations like this can be extremely stressful and distressing for someone dealing with anxiety or Asperger’s.
He probably didn’t know how to express himself acceptably and was highly distressed about the entire idea of having to partner with someone. So yes, he was rude but please understand it’s nothing at all to do with you.
Sask - this is a gym whereby every class requires you to partner with a co gym member at a station , he often attends classes every week. This was not a new situation to him.
