My pet peeve

This has been my pet peeve.

Eyes, alas, can see only outside. It can only observe others; not our own selves. During "you Vs I" situation, since the eyes can see only outside, they suggest to mind that what is happening outside is wrong. Say, in traffic, I am always right. The driver of the car at the front who doesn't (actually cannot) move or the auto-driver at the side who scratched my car (doesn't matter if I drifted sideways and thus) are at mistake. 

Eyes ought to be looking inside/at me as well. They will then, I hope, tell me when I am wrong.

PS: That is why it is important to read out loud before sending out important mails or letter or when reviewing resumes. Ears are much better at catching our own mistakes.
