Sometimes, you don’t realize how much something stresses you out until that thing is removed. Other times, you feel every moment of stress and are still amazed by how relaxing it is to not have the stresser. The latter would be me and my left blinker.
The bulb went out. Suddenly, every left turn became a nightmare. What if I got in an accident? Or pulled over? Or worse yet, mistaken for some jerk who doesn’t use a blinker? I drove for a few days in a state of perpetual stress.
Last night, my awesome Dad fixed it for me and suddenly driving is much less stressful. I want to make left turns, just to prove I can do it safely! Hurray for blinkers! And less stress! And safe driving!
