Umbrellas

Every time it rains businesses in Korea fear the multitude of wet, dripping umbrellas that might trail their way into their places of business. Thus, the invention of the plastic sleeve dispenser.With one step into the business you can quickly slip your umbrella into a specially designed plastic bag that will catch all of the drips and keep the floor of the shop dry. The bags are disposable so before stepping out into the rain, place the bag in the recycle box and then pop open your umbrella. No umbrella should be without one.

What do you think is the most unusual but practical invention?

Umbrella bags sound like a great idea. It kind of reminds me of the neat little cloth bag that we put our plastic grocery bags in so that we can recycle the grocery bags -- you know the ones, put the bag in the top & pull the bag out the bottom when you need it.
Weather finally cooled down a bit. High today is only going to be 78*.

No, the pink umbrella is one of the miscellaneous extras we have at the house. But it made for a good picture.
