So much “extra” clothing is needed, well I drive a two-wheeler and so you might be aware of what I mean by extra clothing!!
--First, make sure to keep an extra pair, just in case you get drenched you can change
--No stylish footwear, just those plain floaters
--Once you are ready, wear another jacket so that even if raincoat is not able to prevent you your actual costumes don’t get wet! And also if they are transparent, it also prevents the embarrassement
--A big bag, with tiffin, shawl, towel, extra pair of clothing and mobile on your back
-- then comes the raincoat
--a scarf/stole on your face, to avoid those spalishing of water from bikes
-- a helmet on top of that
After so much effort, if suddenly it strikes you that you have to give a call to somebody, or want to get money for petrol. Ahhh…. First remove the raincoat then, take out your bag, remove your stole/scarf pull out your mobile and then call and again dress up!
At times I feel I’m going on a spaceship.
Well, even I heard similar narration from some other male colleagues who come in shorts and vest over that a raincoat, and as soon as they enter rush to washroom to get dressed up. Well, that’s a kewl idea.
And also, some bike riders wear polythene packs on their feet so as to protect their leather shoes and socks from getting muddy and drenched!
Rainy Day during weekdays…. Its really horrible!
