I know what you mean. I was in Oxford Street yesterday and had to dodge umbrellas and huge puddles. It was a nightmare.

If someone walks straight at me with a big umbrella which looks as if it is about to poke my eye out I simply hold my hand up and give the umbrella a gentle push out of the way. People usually just say:"oh, ever so sorry"... Its a bit harsh but it works- you've got to have some consideration for your fellow pavement users.

Try clutching your eye and screaming at the top of your voice....not subtle but the offender will certainly take more care in the future! ;)
Works if they dont poke you in the eye as well.....

I saw some kids with unbrellas this morning, there even worse than the adults with brollies because they dont care wether they poke your eye out or not, little S**ts!

Hmmm, sounds like a good scenario for a video game... Waves of little old ladies with sharp umbrellas coming at you. Better find that rocket launcher! ;)

JOAT - Don't know about up there but here on the Costa Blanca you'd need a boat sometimes when it rains. Not often, but when it does it comes all at once
