I'm not a Honker, in fact if you removed my car horn while I was sleeping I probably wouldn't notice for at least 6 months.
I prefer the passive aggressive approach of yelling 'asshole' to my fellow drivers with my windows rolled up.
A neighbor of mine drives a mini van, not sure why, he's 80 years old and the only kid he seems to have is 55 who also owns a mini van of the same color.
I saw these 2 gentleman the other day with their heads underneath the hood talking back and forth saying things like
Old Man Son:You got to override it w/ G3
G3 is the air conditioner, leave that alone
My curiosity was cured when the son informed me that their horn had been going off randomly while they would drive, he said they were getting weird looks.
I got a first hand demonstration of this as these two troubleshooted their problem by taking spins around the block. The wail of an uncontrolled horn in the neighborhood filled the air as they circled the block........I couldn't stop laughing, I thought it was hilarious.
I would rather be pelted w/ water balloons than to be honked at, its not like a tap of the shoulder or a polite, excuse me. The sound of a horn pretty much says
Yo, douchebag. Your ability to suck is amazing!
I get the whole horn concept, I totally get it. Its a safety device that we should all be equipped with, but I think the tone should be tinkered with a bit; with all the technology these days you'd think someone like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs could invent a honk w/ a lit'l less bite.
"kind, sir, please step aside"
"ooohhh, hooo, hoo....you are charming, but please forgive, I must ask you to move"
