Why they hold their unbrella on that situation?

Same every year! Trying to protect themselves on a typhoon with mere umbrellas!!

Why do people even bother trying to use an umbrella in gale-force winds? It doesn't even appear to be raining in that photo. The streets of Tokyo will be littered with the skeletons of umbrellas tonight.

It makes me laugh when I watch the umbrella massacre on the news.

There comes a point when you just need to let the wind take the umbrella away with it -- the thing isn't helping you, just causing problems and is even potentially dangerous when constantly flipping inside and out. At least the people in the photo are smiling.

Every typhoon or heavy rainstorm comes, I take day off. Outside is very dangerous and I don't want be all wet in the first place.

Why even use an umbrella? I haven't used one for a long time. Rain coat is my choice especially there are some you can just stuff it into a pouch and leave that in the bag year round.

Foul weather gear is the only way to go....but yeah, umbrellas seem to be a necessity, not for rainy days only.

So someone can take a picture and we can laugh at them!

No. Not umblella but parasol. Because it makes us look cute especially the guys.

Since when did common sense have anything to do with it?
