This is a small, tiny bump on the road of life, but to compond one mistake with another pisses me off outrageously.
The first car I ever got when I was sixteen was a shitty compact. Anyway, it had this problem where the horn would go off unexpectedly... and it wouldn't stop. So, when it did this one day, I decided to pull the fuse, thinking that the best way to make it stop. Putting the fuse back in only made the horn go off again. So, day turns to dark and as I get ready to go home after tennis practice... it turns out the genius car designers put the headlights and the horn on the same fuse. So, in order to get home in one piece, I had to drive all the way with the horn blaring. NOT fun at stoplights with other traffic around, let me tell you. First order of business after I got home was to jerk the stupid horn out altogether. Why would the horn be on the same fuse as the lights? You can live without one... not without the other. Anyway, this has nothing to do with your story, T... but just to tell you that cars suck and are infuriating.
