Its driving me crazy! Things weren't so bad when all my immediate neighbors rode motorbikes but now, we have new neighbors next door and also diagonally opposite us.
The new neighbors also happen to have newish cars. For some reason, all the newer cars in Palembang honk their horns when they are either locked or unlocked. "Honk" for locking and "Honk Honk" for unlocking. Until moving here, I only knew of cars that beeped or flashed the indicator lights. [SEE! RIGHT NOW! "Honk" and "Honk Honk" just went off again]. These people!
Its bad enough that the cars come configured this way but these drivers can't remember whether or not they locked the car and what the number of honks mean so that they don't have to make it happen repeatedly! They never just give us a single "Honk" or "Honk Honk". They seem to get to their car, press the button and realize that they have just locked the car instead of unlocking it. So, what do they to? Press it again! Other times I think they press the button to lock then car, and then unlock it, just to be sure it was locked the first time, and then unlock it again. Its really really noisy here.
It wouldn't annoy me so much if the cars weren't right outside Aaron's window. As it is, he's had to get used to sleeping with the loud prayers, modified motorbikes and low flying planes.
HONK! There they go again......
