Did you ever think that people just don't hold their umbrellas wrong?

Well, Twitter user haniho_stamp(@kutel4) always thought so. Especially so, since he is belonephobic - things pointing at him really gets on his nerves.

So he decided to create an illustration to show the sort of 'umbrella holding' that bothers him.

For people with belonephobia, closed umbrellas on a rainy day is a cause for fear. I wish they make this illustration into a poster and put it in stations across Japan.

Japanese Twitter users were ecstatic with this illustration.

- I felt discomfort whenever people hold their umbrellas as if they are going to hit people.

- I always had the urge to ask people about this, but it's difficult.

- I hope this helps people think about how umbrellas could actually be harmful.

So is there a better way to hold them?

Thankfully, honiho_stamp also created an illustration for this.

Although one cannot be certain of the best way to hold an umbrella, but an illustration like this helps one think about it.
