Rainy day rant: The SUV of umbrellas on city sidewalks

photo credit: EffedParkSlope

Are we really still having this conversation? You, with the big-ass golf umbrella walking down 7th Avenue, THAT IS NOT COOL! It's been almost two years since the Village Voice published this perfect guide to being a New Yorker in the rain. Clearly, some people need to re-read that shit. Of all the annoyances of city living, there is something about the ginormous umbrella that really sets me off. There is a reason it's called a "golf" umbrella. It's for people playing golf! That's why it's not called a "walking-down-a-city-street" umbrella. Or a "going-down-the-subway-stairs" umbrella. Yeesh. Get it together, people. Find a different way to let everybody know you're self-absorbed asshole.
