Not Happy Using the horn as a door bell

When you arrive, in your car, to pick up a mate or
family member do you go and fetch them
or use the horn, repetitively until they respond?
(Like what they do round here at 1am.)

Re: Using the horn as a door bell

I've used the horn to hurry up family out of a house

I don't live there you see, so they get all embarrassed and it actually works

Don't do it now or should that be, often enough

Re: Using the horn as a door bell

I've noticed when i've been on holiday in France that they like to toot their horns late at night. I thought it was just to **** off the tourists!!

Re: Using the horn as a door bell

Blowing your horn to announce your arrival is a totally chavvy (and very annoying) thing to do!

Often with their music loud enough to wake the whole street.

Re: Using the horn as a door bell

I would not do it as I think it's rude both to the friend, and their neighbours. One of my mates used to do it when picking me up for football, and I had to tell him off

Re: Using the horn as a door bell

my wife use to have a neighbour who likes to honk whenever they get home just to get the housemaid to come out and open the gate for them. they'll keep on doing it untill the maid comes out although it takes less than 10 seconds to do it themselves.
