Do NOT Use An Umbrella For Snow, What Is WRONG With You?


This woman is right: You are all doing this, and it is horrifying. I don't know why we don't use umbrellas for snow as we do for rain, but THAT IS THE WAY THINGS ARE and to act in any other manner is one more troubling sign of how our selfishness and lack of decorum is dragging us all down. For SHAME, people. Have a little goddamn DIGNITY.

" I don't know why we don't use umbrellas for snow as we do for rain …"

Because snow, particularly when it's well below freezing, isn't very wet.

@Captain Bringdown It melts when it hits you. It melts when it hits you. It melts when it hits you. It's also annoying to be covered with snow when you enter a building, and have it melt immediately. Having said that, fuck no, I would never use an umbrella in the snow. It's too much fun. Wee!

@Captain Bringdown EXACTLY. " I don't know why we don't use umbrellas for snow as we do for rain, but THAT IS THE WAY THINGS ARE" is the worst logic for a thing ever. Different kinds of snow require different things, but some snow requires umbrellas.

Especially if you're wearing a wool coat that will smell like wet dog when all the snow melts on it.

But even when you're not. Sometimes an umbrella is the right choice in the snow. Make thoughtful decisions!

@jaimealyse The word "wrong" doesn't do justice to your wrongness.

Another brick pulled from the wall.

Snow's delightful, don't you think?

I'm waiting for some mayoral direction on the issue. Two weeks ago he advised not to overload extension cords during the cold wave.

This is just proof of the "Asian wave". I live in Seoul and everyone uses umbrellas in the snow. It annoyed the hell out me at first. I ranted. I bitched. Then, I got poked in the eye. I was told the umbrella must be used to protect one's person. It's only a matter of time New York.

I used to one of you, but then I tried it, and it's amazing. No flurries in the face! No snowy clothes that turn wet once step indoors! Open your eyes, people!

Oh God, people sometimes you won't need an umbrella to snow because it's too damn cold and it won't just melt on you right ahead, but sometimes it will when it isn't that much of a bellow freezing weather so in that time you should use an umbrella, hope I answered you properly! You're welcome. ;)

OMG, Alex Balk, you are my new hero, I think I love you. You are SO RIGHT. And while we are on the subject of inappropriate conduct in the snow add to that the wearing of Hunter Boots (and all other wellingtons) in the snow, this is COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR. These apparatus are for rain.
