Signs of ageing

It starts with....stopping anywhere..even while its working..running...
Then you know, its time...this one was a huge sign..but it isn't dead yet...
Smaller signs follow....like what happened today.

I was standing peacefully at a signal, and someone starts blowing the horn. I'm wondering why someone is so impatient..coz the signal was just turning green. A policeman was glaring at me...and I'm telling myself..its not me..its someone behind me..look at him..give him the stares....but then he finally yells at me "ka vajav taye horn?" and I tell him "mi vajvat naiye baba". But he insists so I listen to the horn more carefully through the loud blaring music in my ears and voila...its my vehicle...yaay...
If your vehicle's horn stops functioning...you can live with it right. But if it keeps blaring..and does not want to stop...yea yea..it felt as if I was riding in an ambulance..only difference being people don't make way for you, they keep shouting names...
So yea..finally...the best I could do..was try and fix what went wrong by pulling the horn here there (as if it was elastic :P) and yes..it worked..it reduced a little..and then..stopped..I was wondering whether it has stopped working at all. But all is well :)
