I'm sorry, your umbrella is too fat to ride

Subject: Umbrella Fail

A woman got onto the second train out of Barrie today (sorry, I didn't pay attention to what station we were at) with a really big umbrella - picture a golf umbrella, but bigger (someone later quipped that it was a patio table umbrella). It is pouring, people are rushing to get on behind her, and... the big umbrella won't close! She's up against the opposite doors blocking access to the stairs, fighting with this thing. People are piling up behind her until another person took pity on her and gave her a hand. I guess this goes to show that bigger is not always better.
Sounds like she had one of those beach parasols!
