I know rain has its great qualities. This is more about the things the rain causes that annoy me. This is the first of I don't know how many Rain Pet Peeves. One of the things I hate about the rain is when people use their umbrellas as a musical instrument. By that I mean pounding the floor with it nonstop. And it's always out of tune. Sometimes I just want to kick it out of their hands like a football. STOP IT!
