How often do you use your car horn?

do you use it for reasons of vengeance? warning? startling others? like to make noise?

I use my horn frequently because my area (brampton Ontario) has the most dangerous in all of Ontario, and a lot of them blow through stop signs, red lights, cut through lanes without looking, etc. I use it for the purposes of vengeance (laying on a horn to fill an offenders ears with horrible noise), and warning other drivers that a moron is about to ruin their day.

It's okay, Lt. Shinysides. You don't have to eat it now, you're just sleeping, you can eat it later. You can eat it later Lt. Shinysides!

I think I've only used it jokingly to honk at my sisters in the driveway

Hardly ever. People in my area are okay drivers. I'm usually pretty relaxed behind the wheel.

Seldom. If someone isn't paying attention when the light turns green I give them a gentle "throat clear" honk to wake them up.

Very rarely. Usually it's to tell people that the light is green when they haven't noticed. I've never used it out of rage.

Up in NY I rarely used it, since being in SC I've used a lot more. I swear they have clowns just giving away licenses at the DMV's down here.
A bassist is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

Pretty rarely. Last time I did was because some **** was randomly slowing down and straddling my lane and the turn lane like they didn't know what they were doing and finally after coming to almost a complete stop and making me miss the green light decided to turn right.

I've learned to live with most habits of bad drivers but shit, if there are cars behind you and you don't know where you're going, at least get out of the way or keep moving. Don't obstruct traffic.

I use it when some dumb ass is doing something stupid. I make sure to really sustain the honk too. Finally I make sure to go around them if they're in front of me and speed off. Like a true asshole.

I only use it when I'm going to go through a road which could be hard for cars coming the opposite direction to see me easily. Like very steep roads or has a very acute angle.

Constantly getting cut off in the school parking lot, but my horn is dead everywhere except for a sweet spot in the top left part of the wheel which I always forget about, so they usually get off without my chastisement.

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.
