Today was raining. Continuously. Well, it’s stopped now, but it was raining all last night and most of today. I had to go into town after work today and thankfully it had stopped raining by this time. This leads me to the point of this post:
What bugs me is people who walk around with giant umbrellas.. and it’s not even raining.
Now, personally, I don’t even own an umbrella. If it’s raining, I’ll get wet, and I don’t really care. My job is informal enough to be able to wear jeans and a t-shirt, and if my hair is a bit of a mess then nobody really cares. I’ll happily walk to work in the rain as I did this morning. Doesn’t take long to dry out.
But men who walk down the street with huge golfing umbrellas while it’s not even raining bugs me. Firstly, they take up the entire pavement, forcing you to step into the road, usually into a giant puddle. Secondly, you risk losing an eye every time you pass one of these people. Third, I think they look ridiculous. Not only are they so vein they want to use an umbrella while it’s raining, but they also want to use it just in case it might start raining again.
So, men, grow up. It’s just a bit of water. It isn’t gonna hurt you.
