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.

My vote is for the fear of whacking.

But that's just me.
