Honk If You're...

I just got honked at by three truckers on my way into work. By the third one I was a little paranoid someone had slapped a, "Honk If You're Horny" sticker on the back of my car without my knowledge. )I checked when I got here though and there has been no foul play.)

I don't understand though:

1. I'm not wearing some miniskirt that is super revealing (skirt is appropriate length)
2. My hottness is not at its highest early in the morning;)
3. Any view of me from my window or moonroof is bound to be limited

I understood getting honked at when I had my old car: '91 maroon Firebird with no AC...you can imagine those hot summer days when my commute to work involved taking off layers just to not pass out while in traffic. But now? I drive your standard little car. There's nothing special. "Honk If You Like Normal Cars!"

I don't get it...any truckers out there who can give some insight?

I am not a trucker, but take it and run girl! You apparently got it going on! ;)

Were you, perhaps, wearing a corset?

NotCarrie said...

Hahaa no, Tommy, I was not wearing a corset. Nothing exciting or out of the ordinary at all.

chalk it up to a great hair day and the universe's way of saying, "Today, you, NotCarrie, look mahvelous."

Either you're really, really gorgeous, or one of your breaklights isn't working.

NotCarrie said...

Oh glad my car is going into the shop tomorrow!

No, wait...this all occurred on open highway;)

CoatMan said...

It must be the gorgeous thing, then.

i'm not a trucker to provide you insight but i've had that experience as well where i get honked at when i'm totally unhonkable. i mean i was wearing a big jacket for goodness sakes! but the 'good' thing is that if you ever need a pick me up, just take a walk around my work place, there are a ton of truckers who will be glad to honk at you as long as you're of the feminine lifeform... or a cute male haha!

I think we should all listen to Coatman;)

Ugh. I hate that. How do they even get a good enough look? I get honks on the regular.
The craziest is when you're on an Interstate going 80 and they still find a way to glimpse and honk.

NotCarrie said...

I know! It would be one thing if you're both sitting at a light...but at some speeds on the highway how do they even know who is driving?

Oh well, it's fun...I don't mind;)

Laurie (aka buggy) said...

Yeah, it is kind of funny. It's funniest when they keep trying to drive alongside you and look over, mistaking your laughter AT THEM as laughter WITH THEM. hahaha.
