Morning 'beeping' etiquette
Brimful · 03/12/2019 07:56
A neighbour a couple of doors down gets picked up Mon-Fri between 6.15-6.30am each morning.
The person that picks him up beeps his car horn three times in quick succession, beep-beep-beep, presumably to let him know he's there.
While I'm glad it doesn't happen at 5am, personally I wouldn't beep my car horn in the morning outside a residential street.
AIBU to feel it's inconsiderate?

They’re breaking the law.

It's been going on for over a year now, those particular neighbours are not friendly so I'd be worried about their reaction by bringing it up. :(
I'm relieved it's not just me being over sensitive! I wasn't sure if after 6am was a reasonable enough time but then like I said, I wouldn't be doing it.

Horns are for safety reasons only, not for saying hi to your pal, expressing anger or telling your carshare you're outside. Any time of the day is unreasonable for improper use but 6:30 am is completely out of order. I'd be having a strong word in person if it was habitual.

Seriously though, I don't know how you've managed to let this go for so long
After trying everything to block the noise of the beep-beep-beep from waking me up (nothing worked) I now use it as my alarm...
And I just hoped it would end! I'm getting more pissed off because it's inconsiderate. It's not the worst thing in the world, but some people don't seem to give a fuck about their actions anymore.
