I feel slightly judged when my windshield wipers are going faster than other drivers’ wipers, it’s like I’m trying too hard or something.

DAE get really self conscious about the speed of their windshield wiper blades in comparison to other drivers?
I don’t want to seem like a psycho

Driving in the rain with your wipers on and checking the speed of the other driver’s wipers to make sure you aren’t overreacting.
