An umbrella in the hand is worth two in the face

Popularity 1Viewed 2361 times 2014-2-28 15:36 |System category:Life| umbrella

Why do random Chinesers attempt to blind me with the prongs of their umbrellas every time a few drops of water fall out of the sky? Would it hurt them that much to just tilt their gamps slightly so as not to render me sightless. Just another example of the crippling lack of empathy in this society, where people are positively terrified of the notion of yielding, even briefly, to someone else.

Until I came here, I thought pokes were only found on Facebook!  When I first came here I emailed back to my friends that I had become invisible. It almost seemed that way when trying to board a bus, pay in a convenience store, get onto an escalator. TIS.
