In my current lifetime, I have met with some really stupid people…
My car been having problems with the horn for last one week – sometimes there is no sound, other times the sound is weak and lame. It was very frustrating when a stupid motorcyclist cross against my path and I could not horn the idiot to move out.

So, when I took my car for its normal service recently, I highlighted this problem to the mechanic. He entered into my car and pressed on the horn and there was a sound. It was weak – I know and I told the mechanic that it was not loud enough. So there is still problem with the horn.
The dumb mechanic – instead of popping the engine bay and checking the wiring, decided to keep pressing on the horn (on the steering wheel). Satisfied that there is sound, he told me something I find insulting, stupid and down-right nonsense.
He asked me to press on the horn “correctly” on the steering wheel
It took me couple of minutes to register on what I have heard. After clocking almost 134,000 kilometres on the car, I pretty sure I know how to horn properly. I was not an idiot like him. So, I decided not to argue much with the mechanic, I am sure I will get more stupid responses.
I still had the horn problem to contend with. Last night, I decided to check the wiring and battery myself. I noticed that there was some corrosion on the negative terminal of the battery. I took the connection off, cleaned the corrosion particles and reconnect the connections. I then checked the wiring – it looked worn out but nothing looked loose or disconnected.
I retest the quality of the horn sound – it was louder than before but I was not sure whether I have “solved” the problem. I won’t know until I have tested it against some stupid motorcyclist.
