overheard on a rainy day
New York street..rainy day
excuse me...sir..I bought this umbrella from you..
and somethings terribly wrong
I bought it...2 weeks ago..
and it still
I'd like my money back!
Very strange, whenever it starts to rain in the city, umbrella vendors start magically appearing all over the streets..as if from thin air.
Well the other day, just as it started to drizzle I decided to look closely and get to the bottom of this strange phenomena.
Do you remember those Fisher Price pop up farm toys (see picture below). Thats exactly what happens!
As soon as it starts to rain selected sidewalk squares flip over very fast and voila, there's your umbrella vendor.
