Everyday Annoyances

"It's not the mountains that wear you down.  It's the grain of sand in your shoe."

That statement is truer than you could ever believe.   A grain of sand on its own weighs very little.  But as it reaches a million or even a billion grains, the weight begins to add up.  But even a single grain can cause damage, cause blistering and bleeding, if it wears away repeatedly on the same spot.

It's not single, big things about right hand privilege which annoy left handed people.  Rather, it's the small, everyday things that get under one's skin.  That's what this label is for, to identify the small things that can irritate a little at a time, like the single grain of sand in your shoe will irritate.
