Whilst walking down the street yesterday in Manchester, I spotted a man carrying an umbrella. Nothing unusual about that you’re thinking. However, this guy is an ergonomist in the making having invented his own unique hands free method of umbrella carrying! Check out the photo below… he placed the hook of the umbrella on the back collar of his coat! Ingenious!
Hands are free to do other things, eg, shopping
Hands can be put in the coat pockets to keep warm
Umbrella is behind you so is not obstructive
Looks awesome (thanks to @MarkSkinner_ for this one!)
Makes other people smile 🙂
Could be easily stolen
May damage the collar of certain coats
Won’t be pleasant once the umbrella has been used and is wet!
May forget it’s there and end up sitting on it (lol) or accidentally hitting someone with it
In contrast to Mark’s Pro of looking awesome, we have ‘looking a bit of a tit’ from @PeteWilliams
What do you think?
