Umbrella thievery is nothing new at restaurants, especially on those rainy days. In fact, last year The Ethicist answered the tough question “Is Everyone Out to Steal My Umbrella?” in The New York Times. Given Wednesday’s downpour, it’s not surprising that some people had extra sticky fingers.
A little bird tells us that the ubmrella bin at Rose’s Luxury was hit hard, especially the black umbrellas. Sadly, it wasn’t confusion, but people literally taking umbrellas that didn’t belong to them. Reminds me of the time that a thief took Rose’s “F*ck Perfect” bathroom sign.
For those who stole what didn’t belong to them — I hope “your” umbrella turned inside out. Then again, if someone took your umbrella, does that mean you can take someone else’s?

Tricia is a native Washingtonian, born and raised in Columbia Heights. She loves DC so much that she was only able to leave the city for one year after college and immediately came running back. She’s lived in Navy Yard for the last few years and is excited to see all the new restaurants finally moving into the neighborhood. Tricia works in PR during the day, and spends her nights trying out new restaurants in DC with friends or watching The Good Wife, Scandal, Bones and Grey’s Anatomy. A couple of years ago Tricia decided to eat at all of the 100 Very Best Restaurants until she realized she would be old and broke by the time she finished. Unfortunately, part of that fate might still come true due to her obsession with Uber.
