She inches it down just a little.
He asked, "Did you honk?"
He then said, "The horn is designed and installed on cars as an attention-getting device and I wanted you to know that you now have my complete and undivided attention. Is there anything I can do to help you?"
She shook her head no.
He got back in his car, waited for the next green and went on his way.
I loved that story when he told it and still love it today.
I've ALWAYS wanted to do that but was too chicken. I figured I'd get a snootful of pissed off fist for my wise crackery.
