Years ago, for some reason my car horn would go off by itself for no apparent reason. It was really embarrassing in traffic when people thought I was laying on the horn at them but I wasn't. How do you apologize for that? Sometimes it would happen when I wasn't even in the car. Then, to save face, I'd press on my keychain and hope the horn stopped by itself so it looked like I was turning off my car alarm (those weren't very prevalent back then, and my keychain wasn't even one that remotely unlocked the car.)
Another time, the same car was dying on the way home one day. I knew as long as the RPMs kept up it would make it, but if I had to stop at a stoplight it was going to croak. Miraculously, I made it through every single stoplight. I was home free with no reason to stop until I got to my house. Then, on a desolate road with nobody around, some guy pulled out right in front of me and made me slam on the brakes. I mean, there was no other car is sight except mine! Instead of coasting home my car sputtered and died and I had to walk. Grrr! That was annoying.
