Don't stab me with your umbrella - ella - ella - ah - ah - ah - ella!

Hey CJ

With the rain we had today and expected the rest of the week, maybe you could put the word out on umbrella carrying etiquette. I nearly lost a boob today.

This morning, some idiot was carrying his umbrella flat... with a sharp point. It nearly caught me in the boob. He nearly took out another woman as well and totally oblivious to the whole thing. He should have been carrying it so it was point down.

Tonight, another moron was carrying his umbrella the same way and nearly got me in the gut. No, I wasn't following that closely. He was an arm swinger and the 'brelly was flyin'! I can't believe people are so into their own world that they aren't aware of what's going on around them.

Walking up the stairs at union last week, a man in front of me, carrying an umbrella in his hand parallel to the ground managed to hit me in the face, about an inch below my eye, with the point while he was swinging his arm back. Lucky me, at least it wasn't my eye...
