YABU. My nana says bibbed, so there.

YABU it's bibbed. If someone is being stupid you bib them.

it might be "sounded the horn"

Urgh it's beeped yanbu

ThanksMateThanksMate Thu 10-Sep-20 20:48:51

Beeped, honked or pumped

Never heard of bibbed!

Haenow Thu 10-Sep-20 20:49:13

YANBU, is bibbed even a word?!

EveryDayIsADuvetDay Thu 10-Sep-20 20:50:46

Either version is an attempt to replicate the sound of the horn presumably - so either is correct depending on the noise your car horn makes.

It’s bipped actually.

Clevs Thu 10-Sep-20 20:51:09

I've heard of 'bipped' but never 'bibbed'.

Clearly 'beeped' is onomatopaeic, so 'bibbed' is a different but equally legitimate verb.

You’re wrong on both counts because it’s Bipped.

CookieMumsters Thu 10-Sep-20 20:52:14

Bobbed if it's a shirt blast, beeped if it's a long blast.

BigBlondeBimbo Thu 10-Sep-20 20:52:53

I have never heard of "bibbing the horn"! Where is this a thing please?

It’s bib the hooter round these parts

BasinHaircut Thu 10-Sep-20 20:54:03

Hooter pronounces ‘ooter’

Is it regional? DH is from Essex and says bibbed, I'm Welsh and say beeped.

Theimpossiblegirl Thu 10-Sep-20 20:56:25

Obviously I'm right.

OddBoots Thu 10-Sep-20 20:58:33

Isn't 'beeped' a longer press than a 'bibbed'?

mrsBtheparker Thu 10-Sep-20 20:58:45

I've heard pipped and bipped, as well as beeped, but never bibbed.

ChanceChanceChance Thu 10-Sep-20 20:59:09

No issue with bibbed or bipped, beeped somehow takes too long to say.

CandyCaneLane0 Thu 10-Sep-20 20:59:20

It's pipped

Fedupmum88 Thu 10-Sep-20 21:00:54

Pipped here too
