I knew it was going to happen tonight. Went to Mos Burger to pick up a burger to go, and didn’t feel right leaving my umbrella in the can, but I did. Sure enough, five minutes later it’s gone. Crappy umbrella too. I’ve had a few umbrellas stolen and for that reason I usually carry them inside.
Nor do I use an umbrella condom. I don’t get it. I’m supposed to put a little baggie over the umbrella when I arrive at work, another when I visit another building, one when I return from lunch, etc. What a waste. For a while I used them and saved them for re-use but then I said screw it, a few drops of water never hurt anyone.
Next point: if someone steals your umbrella is it acceptable to steal someone elses? Sort of like Kevin Spacey passing it forward, right?
