ella ella eh eh eh - oh fuck off

so it rained today.
i like the rain.
i seem to be the only person who does.
at the first drip drop, come the first pitter patter up pops a forest of umbrellas, brollies and bumbershoots.

look it is not that i have anything against umbrellas per se, it is that 99% of the time they are carried and used (well misused) by idiots.
summer was bad enough with multitudes wandering the streets not bothering to look where they were going because they were too busy looking at their phones. winter isn't going to change that just add a whole new level of difficultly in walking down the road.

umbrella users have little use or care for other pedestrians.
it is raining and they have to keep dry. so they forge ahead umbrella above their heads. gotta keep dry for that important meeting.
of course they don't pay attention to what is in front of them. it is all full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes.
not for them the polite gesture of raising the umbrella as they approach a fellow walker on the street of life, nor the slight tilt of the brolly to move it out of the way. nope. just keep going. hold that sucker firm. let the other person move. hey it's their eye, let them move.

i hate them.
i fucking hate them.

sure i might be ok with rhianna offering to let me stand under her ella ella 
i might be thrilled to watch gene kelly to do his dance in a puddle strewn street where he uses his brolly as a prop.
but i think that is the extent of my umbrellas are ok.

the rest? they should all be burnt.
i think that is reasonable of me.
