Why must people keep their umbrellas raised when walking under scaffolding? WHY? You aren’t even getting wet and there’s so little room for the width of the umbrellas!
Same goes for people who keep their umbrella raised as they walk down the steps into the subway.
And I saw a woman going from an office into a waiting car — with a guy holding an umbrella over her head for the walk from the building to the curb. I thought for a second, maybe she just had her hair done, but the office she was leaving was a doctor’s office according to the nameplate on the door.
I want to tell these people that they won’t melt if they get a little wet. They can’t be exposed for ten seconds to the elements?
