The Imperialist Umbrella

People tend to look at you different when you carry an umbrella and it's not raining. I don't mean the typical, new-fangled, fold-up-into-the-size-of-a-tampon, pocket umbrella, but the giant, walking-stick kind that open up enough to fit five adults under it.

It's almost like they expect you to speak with a British accent, offer them tea, and proclaim the world is yours in a typical nineteenth century British imperial fashion.

Or perhaps they are simply frightened that you might whack them across the head with your umbrella should they step in your way.
