I mostly drive a Nissan Versa while on the job and let me tell you, that thing has the most annoying quirks. The horn is so touchy that I have accidently honked it more times than I care to admit…
The first time was when I was delivering floor absorbent to a hospital in the area. I was backing up and I turned around to check my blind spot and suddenly there was this BEEEP!!! I was parked right outside the Main Entrance and all I could do is smile and wave at the poor scared people and pray that none of them had a heart condition.
The second time was when I was turning left in one of my busiest intersections and didn’t realize I had my arm resting on the horn. I honked all the way through my turn and had people from all four ways of traffic looking around to see who was honking. I was thinking, “Who is the idiot honking at everybody??” It didn’t take long for me to realize that the idiot was me. I laughed the whole way back to my store.
I have since learned: Don’t rest your arm on the horn… Embarrassment soon follows.
