Protect your erratically pacing boss from the rain with your umbrella to earn an ample tip.

It is raining and your boss insists on waiting outside for his car. Unfortunately for you, a valet snafu means his car is not coming. Shield him from the rain for as long as you can to earn the biggest tip you can before you get canned.

See how much money you can make and post it in the comments!


Use the mouse to move the umbrella over your boss. If he gets wet, the red anger meter will go up. If you shield him, he will calm down and the anger bar will decrease. When the bar reaches the other side of the screen, Game Over!

Its ok but too easy and there is no real way to lose unless you let it.

Well, what I was going for was a classic arcade game, where the point isn\'t really beating the game, but to see how many points you can rack up before the game ends.

Have you tested in Linux? I think you\'re dropping a lot of mouse events, because I can have my pointer a long way from the umbrella and the umbrella doesn\'t always move.

I made $991. This is a simple game, but I like the progression of the difficulty.
