Unfurled Protection

give them the stink eye

With a glare in my eye, I stare them down. It is raining, and as I walk back to work from the car and I try to stay dry. I have no umbrella, and I am starting to get wet. Then it happens. I approach someone, each of us not wanting to step from under the protection and get wet. Yet, the person I pass has an umbrella in the up position.

Why do people insist on walking under the awnings when they have an umbrella? I had more than one person force me to step out into the rain as we passed each other. Does this make sense? Why have the umbrella unfurled if you are under an awning? Why force others to get wet when you have some protection to keep yourself dry?

Grr, yet another pet peeve due to peoples inconsiderate nature.
