Rules of the Rain

Vancouver is well known for it's rain, and most Vancouverites are savvy enough to know to always carry an umbrella. However, how to politely use it is a topic I think very few are familiar with.

So I've created a list of do's and don'ts to make the world a little more pleasant for everyone in the rain.:

1. Do: let those without umbrella's walk on the awning covered part of sidewalk, without having drippings from your umbrella hitting them as you try to squeeze under too.

2. Don't: Be that person with the obnoxiously large patio sized umbrella.

3. Do: lift your umbrella higher if you are the taller person, lets keep everyones face safe from umbrella assault

4. Do: Carry pretty colorful/patterned umbrella, it will cheer everyones day up to see something other than black

5. Don't: Steal someone else's umbrella, even if it is prettier than yours

6. Don't: Bring your dripping wet umbrella through stores, leave it near the door, no need to be the cause of someone slipping.

I have nightmares about this happening to me everyday it rains:

Any other rules I need to add to the list??
