Things I Hate: The Eternal Blinker

Very few things can push me to anger as quickly as an “eternal blinker”. This happened recently, where I was stuck in limbo on the freeway because someone in the lane to my right had their blinker on, but was not moving over. I wanted to be courteous and let them in (no one likes the person who speeds up when they can clearly see you intend to merge into their lane). However, if you are not going to get into my lane, then turn your freaking blinker off.

I was frustrated. “How irresponsible and dangerous of them?” I thought.

When I arrived at my destination an acquaintance arrived behind me and parked at the same time. “Hey Jared,” they said kindly, “You have a brake light out.”

And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.
— Matthew 7:3-5

What are the sins that make you mad in others because you commit them yourself?  (For me it is pride)
