It couldn't have been 930 as your post is from 911. Either way she was being crazy and most likely on meth or totally bonkers. Better not have any pets.

I'd say laying on the horn anytime of day, but especially at off hours outside his dwelling made it his business ! It's a warning device, not a friggen call button !

Tapping on the horn is one thing, laying on it is another. My windows were closed, tv on, etc....and it was still really loud, as the houses are very close together.

The site is set -1 hour for me, so it was 9:30pm when it happened, I posted after 10pm.

Not to mention, noise when you live in the city is quite different than noise on a quiet residential street.

When I lived in NYC in Greenwich Village, there was ALWAYS street noise - horns, broken bottles, yelling, etc. You learn to tune it out.

When you're used to a quiet street, it's much more jarring and annoying.

Personally, I wouldn't have even went out. I would have just called the non-emergency police line and reported a public disturbance.

You're one of those people who lay on their horns, aren't you?

I live in a gated community that is very quiet, particularly at night....so it really stuck out.

You should have egged her on a bit until she hit you, then called 911 and Baker-Acted the lunatic.

My neighbors are friends with people who live further back in the subdivision. Every time the friends drive by, they honk their horn as a greeting. Really annoying...

Now....THAT...would have been funny. I was half expecting her to slash me tires that night (I left my car out of the garage because I was going to do laundry). I ended up parking it inside.

It wouldn't surprise me with the attitude he has. I'm glad he doesn't live next to me.

Lazy, inconsiderate fucks laying on their horns and creating unneeded noise is a pet peeve of mine too. Way to go, peddy!

Long enough to employ the axiom of "that's all I can stands, I can't stands no more!"

I mean, I did previously run groups on anger management, emotional regulation, and social skills training....so I know my way around people with poor impulse control and frequent emotional instability. Right when she started to mention her grandmother and all of this personal info, I became the person she was going to explode on.

I think you should have called her a ****. That always works.

10-15 seconds at a time for a good while. I mean, if it was once or twice, but it was over and over.

It completely feels like that, I hate having people living literally on top of each other. Unfortunately I can't do anything about it until I move.

In this day and age you can't confront people like that, there is no telling what they will do. Best thing to do is call the cops and ask them to investigate. But at 9:30 PM I am not sure they will do anything. Around here disturbing the peace happens after 10 PM.

And get a place that has an interior washer/dryer set-up or more accommodating garage washer/dryer set-up. My washer and dryer are in the garage but I do not need to move my car just to do laundry.
