What ticks you off?

If you pay attention, you can tell a lot about a person by what ticks them off.

I hate slow Internet. I can’t stand spending money on stupid things. And I waste more time complaining about complainers than is helpful for me or the complainers.

These are the things that tick me off. Like a time fuse on a bomb, these are the things that control when, even how, I explode.

When I think of great men, though, I know the things that annoy them are far greater. Great men get annoyed by great things.

  • Slavery
  • Poverty
  • Disease
  • Addiction
  • Loneliness
  • Desperation
  • Indifference

I don’t mean great on a scale between good and bad. I mean it in terms of grandeur or magnitude. The things that annoy great men are far more significant than the things that annoy me.
