What is it about rainy days that make people act out of character?

For those based in NSW, it’s impossible to ignore the Noah’s-Ark-like-rain that’s been pelting down in the past few days. But no matter where you are, rain can bring out the worst in people. Maybe its time to start gathering two of each animal…

Morals go out the window

Have you ever left your umbrella in its designated area out the front of the shop/library/house etc, only to find someone has ‘borrowed’ your brolly?

Gollum scream



There’s a special place in Hell for people who do that.



… which can induce feelings of rage

It's like you're begging me to hate you



Why must life be so hard



and make people a little more paranoid

I sense danger



Are you looking at my umbrella?



Organised people, with umbrellas, walk around (dry) with impunity

Hey everyone come see how good I look



No-one likes that guy (but we all secretly wish we were).




While the unorganised walk around looking like drowned rats.

We’ve all been there.

and none for gretchen weiners


Poor Gretchen. I feel your pain.




They’re probably reconsidering their life choices up until that point





Why did I forget my brolly?!




All outdoor plans are cancelled.

indoors keyboards



And umbrellas you’d never buy on a dry day, suddenly look like the greatest purchase of your life.

Shut up and take my money


Even if they’re at crazily-inflated prices.



But of course, you must let the world know about the rain.



In case your friends didn’t have access to a window or the news.



What is it about rain that annoys you? Let us know.
