So this will be short.
There's a traffic circle on my work commute. As is usual, cars pop in, drive counterclockwise around it, and pop back out at their correct street. In the mornings, this is fine. I have to give the hairy eyeball to cars on the next entrance, to make sure they don't assume I'm spinning off already and pull out in front of me, then I take the third road and continue on to work.
In the afternoon, however, I enter then circle, then immediately exit it at the next street. About 1/4 of the time, I find that I have automatically put my right turn signal on. I guess because it's basically the same action as a regular right turn.
But nobody puts their blinkers on for traffic circles, because there's only one option on how to go. So I feel like a gigantic dork every time I notice I have my turn signal on.
Yes. I'm 46 years old, and I'm worrying that strangers in other cars will think I'm not cool because I use my turn signal at a traffic circle.
And then I'm mad at myself for being so insecure and ridiculous, which is actually just as silly of a thing to care about.
