See You In Hell!

Explain this to me:

Why is it that whenever somebody is walking down the street holding an umbrella, they somehow fail to grasp the obvious fact that the umbrella has just drastically increased the actual physical space necessary for them to safely, and without collision, traverse a crowded street? And that this new physical space consists of a 4’ diameter dome arrayed with pointy spokes at regular intervals right at face-level, so that even if YOU (minus the umbrella) can pass easily between 2 people walking the opposite direction, your umbrella simply CANNOT?

Oblivious motherfuckers.

I realize that this isn't an excuse, but the same thing happens to kids at the playground when they get a stick in their hand. Suddenly their arm is 2 ft longer and god help the child next to them who is suddenly 2 ft closer....

Well, in defense of kids, their spatial understanding of the world is not yet fully-developed. I can't say the same thing for 30-year-olds.

It is even worse for people with huge ass umbrellas.

Can we talk (write?) a little about the golf umbrella phenomenon? Are people actually trying to create their own personal climate with these things?

Golf umbrella nerds: IT'S ONLY WATER! Stop creating your own damn dry-as-a-bone zip code. If you are in a job where you have to wear a $2,500 suit that will get ruined in the rain, TAKE A CAB and let the rest of us just suffer with the rain and not have also deal with your personal sports-dome on a stick.

I feel better now.
