I know I’m running the risk of alienating people with this rant, because I have a feeling we have tooters in the midst, but this needs to be said.
What the fug is with you people who need to toot the horn at 2 in the morning as you’re pulling away from the house you were just visiting?
Do you realize how stupid and obnoxious this is? What is the point? Did you not say goodbye less than 20 seconds ago? This has to be the single most idiotic thing a person can do.
What is this, a signal to everyone that you’ve safely navigated 11 feet away from the driveway with no incidents? “Look at me! The car is rolling and I haven’t plowed over your mailbox. TOOT!”
Do you fear that the hosts are going to say, “you know, he didn’t toot. There is something severely wrong here. We should call 911. There must be a crazy person with an ax in the back seat. Hello, 911? A friend just left the house and he didn’t toot. Usually he toots twice. Sometimes once. This time, nothing. Do you have a squad car in the area?”
Here’s an idea. Why don’t you lean on the horn until you’re out of earshot? That would really make a statement.
