To have pomped my horn?

Will try and keep this quick grin but I’m so annoyed by the car park stand off I’ve just had that I need to know AIBU?

So, I’ve just been parked up in a dark car park, in a dark coloured car, no lights on. Another car pulls up and starts to reverse into the space right next to me, which is a disabled spot so huuuuge, and with plenty of other spaces around. Car reverses at a funny angle, at speed, and VERY close to my car, so close both passenger and me think it’s going to make contact.

I pomp my horn, car keeps coming so I lean on horn. Driver peers round at me shouting and gesticulating. She finishes parking (with me and passenger both wincing), winds window down and starts having a go.

Apparently I’m BU to have pomped as she has reversing cameras so knew I was there. My stand point is; you were literally an inch away from my car (when there’s two whole empty spaces to play with), I don’t know you have cameras, I was warning you that I was there. Car accidents happen every single day so I was making sure you didn’t hit me. She thought this was a ridiculous point and can obviously drive properly as she has passed her test hmm, “people wouldn’t pass their test if they didn’t know how to park”.

I’m so annoyed by her attitude, but she clearly thought I was completely ridiculous. I think it would have been ridiculous for me to have sat in my car and just allowed her to reverse into it. So Mumsnet, AIBU?

YANBU - I have nearly reversed into someone before and they beeped their horn so I stopped. I was grateful not mad.

It's a typo for honked

Over here you beep or toot.

Both would be acceptable in the circumstance

Now having a little chuckle to myself imagining someone watching someone slow motion collide with their own car and farting loudly in shock 🤣

Read the title and thought “shouldn’t this be moved to the sex/relationships forum?”

Pomp 😂😂😂

This happened to me last week. I was the reversing person. I definitely wasn’t as close as that as my sensors had barely started but the person in the space behind beeped me. It gave me a shock as it was dark and I didn’t know there was anyone in the car. Maybe you caught her off guard so she reacted strongly because of that. For what it’s worth I felt bad that she’d thought I was going to reverse into her but didn’t think any more of it except lucky I didn’t reverse into anyone.

Da fuck, pomped?

Friedmushroom Tue 13-Apr-21 23:34:08

grin ‘Pomped’ is fairly common up here (Lancashire) wonder if it’s a regional thing?
