1. The use of an umbrella turns people on the sidewalk into idiots. 2. Golf umbrellas are almost exclusively used by people shorter than 5'2". Also, why are Hummer umbrellas a thing? 3. Umbrellas are useless in the drizzle but try telling that to anyone with hair, clothes, or shorter than 5'2". 4. The elderly have fantastic taste in rain ponchos, bonnets, and boots. 5. Dogs also have fantastic tastes in rain ponchos and boots. I've yet to see one in a bonnet however. 6. Dog owners seem unwilling to pick up dog poo in the rain. At least, I hope that's dog poo I've been seeing. 7. There is almost a complete absence of nannies with kids in strollers on the sidewalks. I wish it rained more often in my neighborhood. 8. The homeless smell even worse when wet. 9. The homeless like when you buy them coffee on rainy days, but would love you if you were to buy them whiskey. I however, do not need their love. 10. Why do people queue up outside of Starbucks, in the rain, when they could go across the street, to a coffeehouse where there is no line and there's better coffee?

There's no need to be in a bad mood. And this is coming from the King of Grumpy. But then again, I like rainy days.
