It was raining this morning as I left for work so I grabbed my umbrella. It’s a decent umbrella. It’s collapsible so it fits in my bag, it has a wrist strap, and it has a cover too. And I got it for free. Because I don’t believe in paying for an umbrella. You don’t buy umbrellas. You find them. That’s how it works. You come across them randomly and claim them as your own. Eventually you’ll leave that umbrella on the bus or at the coffee shop accidently and someone else will take it. Lots of restaurants have a bucket for wet umbrellas by the main entrance. If it’s a sunny day and you see an umbrella there, that shit is up for grabs. Or you can raid the lost & found at work on a rainy day. There are a million ways to get an umbrella. Paying for one shouldn’t be an option.
