so, it was raining today and I had to pick up my grandson. After searching frantically for umbrellas, I finally found 2 of them. so, after driving to the school, I was able to use my umbrella. but, for some reason I couldn't get the other umbrella opened up and I had to ask the teacher. well, after that whole fiasco, when I got to the car, I couldn't get the umbrellas down. I debated about if I would look more stupid putting them in the car open or if I should spend more time trying to figure out how to get them down. so, I decided to try to get them down. It took me about 5 minutes with at least 20 cars looking at me. Me and mechanical things do not get along.
mbday, if that makes you dumb, then let me join your club! I do NOT get along with umbrellas, no matter how simple they are. I just don't use them any more... getting wet is way less aggravating!
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you tomatoes, make Bloody Marys.
I usually don't have trouble with umbrellas, except for one with an automatic button. It nearly took off my glasses when I hit the button too soon, and later I couldn't get it to close because I didn't realize the button would collapse it for me. However, I used to lose umbrellas all the time - once in a phone booth, once on a bus, and a couple of times under my seat at the movies - but now I have a 6" Totes mini that I carry in my purse all the time.
We don’t get smarter as we get older. There is just less stupid stuff left that we haven’t already done.
LadyK I did laugh out loud thinking of the umbrella smacking you in the face. I have seen that happen - or did it happen to me? dunno. but, funny story. It used to be that umbrellas were pretty universal - push the pin in and viola! open. but, it seems like they have gotten more advanced and too confusing for my feeble brain.
