I have many many many pet peeves on the road. I will only talk about one today. For those who do not understand how a four way stop sign works or how to pass someone on a two way highway please click here to learn how these things are supposed to work. Today I will just talk about one thing and that is the "Eternal Blinker".
I would like to personally take this time to blame Mrs. Erin Marie Sorensen for this pet peeve. I can link her directly to my irritation for the eternal blinker. I really never noticed this or cared about the eternal blinker until one day I was driving with my friend, Erin, and she all of a sudden went crazy about someone who had on their turn signal for what seemed like an eternity. Ever since that moment I started to see this everywhere and I too now go a little crazy with the eternal blinker. I really want to be a courteous driver and so sometimes I will see someone who wants to change lanes in front of me so I will slow down to let them in. I'll think to myself, "They seen scared to make the change though! Why don't they move in"? So then I will wave my hand at them indicating to them that they are safe to make the change, yet they move not!!! "Why don't they just go? Clearly there is enough room!!! Oh, it is because they have on their eternal blinker." This is so obnoxious to me.
This is all thanks to Erin. You can find her and her husbands blog from this page under Adam and Erin.
