Discarded Umbrellas Attract One Another
Whenever there’s a strong rain (with strong winds), I tend to find discarded umbrellas on my way to work. And the funny thing is, whenever one person has discarded their umbrella – that act seems to attract or encourage others to do the same.
Oftentimes, I’ll find multiple discarded umbrellas near the same trash can. And in my head, I can hear the other person (or people) all saying “Me too!” as they leave their broken umbrella along their commute.
These discards are like little mile markers, indicating someone had a really bad start to their morning. And, in some ways, they are reminders to me that my morning wasn’t quite so bad.
