Another public service announcement from the I, Anonymous Blog:
Well now the real Portland has shown it's wet, soggy face, and it's gonna mean mug us all for the next 8 months so here's the rule: If you have an umbrella and the person walking toward you doesn't, DON'T walk along the space under the awnings and leave the other folks to get soaked. Your umbrella does specifically what those awnings do: block out rain. You're essentially keeping your umbrella dry while leaving other people to get drenched. WOMEN YOU SEEM TO BE THE MAIN CULPRIT OF THIS SHIT. I don't care if you're a lady, if you have an umbrella, get the fuck out from under the awnings and quit hugging the wall.
