You know, there’s a reason they’re called golf umbrellas.
It doesn’t make them suited for crowded CBD footpaths.
And why is it that smaller people seem to like them so much? You’d think they had less body mass that needed rain protection.
Fair enough if multiple people are cowering under them I suppose. But more often than not, it’s just one person.
By the way, I reckon parking inspectors could write loads of tickets if they just turned up to schools at drop-off time (especially when it’s raining) and fined those clueless/selfish people who treat the drop-off zones as regular parking spots.
