today was a bit wet so i took my umbrella but had a bit of a conundrum.

See my umbrella is a bit faulty where the metal extends and the material connects at the end one of those broke on the first hole so i only had three quarters of an umbrella.

so it got me thinking

is it better to have a faulty umbrella that barely works or no umbrella

You should be worrying about more faulty aspects of your life than an umbrella.

Why not just fix you're faulty umbrella?

 

I've fixed mine (a couple of struts broke) by using chopsticks as replacement struts, and gaffer taping them into place at either end of the break.

 

Then the ends of another strut came away from the housing on the outside edge of the umbrella. Easy fix, a bit of bonsai wire threaded through the eyelets, twist with pliers, trim the ends, and good to go again.

 

I've always said, that whoever can make a golf umbrella that doesn't break ..... will make millions. :)
