Immature Car Horn Usage

I’m pretty convinced everyone knows what it feels like to be honked at.

Personally, I get all shaky and nervous. Whether it was a deserved honk or not, my body just freaks out.

But what about those people who honk at you when there’s 267 other cars in front of you, and you have nowhere to go? Or how about when you’re at a red light trying to make a right turn, and you really can’t because there’s too many cars coming down the road? Or what about when you’re walking down the street (maybe to get some exercise) and some jerk blows their horn and shouts, “How much?!” or “YEAH!” or something to that effect?

We’ve all been there in some respect. And it’s just downright rude, obnoxious, and annoying.

And you know what? They’re loud. Really loud. Ever walk in front of a car just to have your friend blow the horn so you practically crap your pants?

Unfortunately, we need our car horns to alert drivers when they commit some type of douchebaggery. Like if they pull out in front of you and cut you off.

They can also be used at night on sleepy drivers when the driver falls asleep at a red light, and doesn’t realize that it’s changed to green.

Check this out! I’m not a huge proponent of Saturday Night Live, but I thought this one was funny.

    I think car horn usage would really go down if we made the car horn sound more effeminate than it is now.

    In Greece for example honking and swearing is pretty normal in the capital and the second largest city. I also hate it, especially when it’s done just to show how impatient or in a hurry the honker is. Ugh.

    “ome jerk blows their horn and shouts, “How much?!”” <– How much of what? *scratch*

    Unfortunately I cannot see Hulu, because it's only for US citizens :/

    I’ve actually trained myself to intentionally move at a slower pace when someone randomly honks at me…teaches them a lesson 🙂

    I agree, it does make you jump, but you do need a horn. The other day two children just cycled off the pavement in front of a car, fortunately the woman stopped. I think she was shocked, because she didn’t blow her horn. The children just seemed to laugh at her.

    It can be dangerous, this horn honking. I always jump, and it diverts my attention from my driving. I’m not a big fan of people saying, “there should be a law,” but maybe…
