This is the first thing I turn off whenever I get a new car or truck. It is so annoying to hear the horn beep every time you lock and unlock your vehicle. The lights flashing are enough.

What is even worse are the idiots who have to hit their remote 3 and 4 times because they think it isn't locked the 1st time. The horn beep feature should be turned off in all vehicles at the factory. If the user is wants it, make them turn it on.

Lots of things irritate lots of people. I am guilty of one of those-my trailer has 3/4" drive for stabilizers and I use 3/4 socket and impact to raise them when we leave in the morning. I do it as quickly as possible but am not going to crank by hand and my drill is not set up to turn a 3/4 socket. Our major irritation is restroom facilities that are not handicap accessible, and we really appreciate the few places that have "unisex" shower facilities where I can help my wife rather than trying to "sneak" her into the mens showers very early or very late to help her shower. We generally use the trailer as a place to sleep and eat and otherwise are out in the surrounding areas so if it's noisy we turn on the fan or AC and play music-problem solved. Otherwise we sit outside and watch whatever is going on around us-everything from bison to birds to chipmunks and squirrels (and people).

If you have 3/4" sockets to raise/lower your stabilizers.....1) you could buy electric ones (stabilizers), 2) use a regular drill to lower them (get a good one with a lot of torque)....much less noise.

As far as handicapped, depending on the situation we are as well. Depending on where you are there are so many variables for a person when you have a disability. Finding those "perfect" places when traveling in an RV and wanting to see new/fun things can pose a problem.

Unisex bathrooms?? I'm from TX...."either you is, or you ain't" - never found a "unisex". I've seen, and encountered folks with problems; I say I, or anyone else, takes care of someone with a problem. Do I need to stand outside to help/protect the folks? That's fine. IF a unisex bathroom was for those handicapped folks that needed 2 folks "only" it would be OK, but, we have now devolved into a what, in my mind, is a pretty sick society.

If you are in a campground where I am, and need to take care of your wife in the men's room or women's, I understand and it won't be a problem for me and shouldn't be for anyone else.

HeadLights!! I can't count the times I've been sitting at my campfire and someone pulls in across from me and leaves their headlights on endlessly while they're setting up camp.
All the while they're shining directly into my eyes and lighting up my site like daylight.
And what's worst is most of the time they're not even using them to see what they're doing because the lights are shining into someone else's site and not theirs!
It's amazing how inconsiderate and unaware some people are!

While I agree with you, maybe they are using the tail lights as "mood lighting" to soften their rough towing day ??? Nah, probably not.....

The worst part is nowadays the lack of consideration is everywhere. I would've got smacked for not holding the door for someone, but now it's more normal for the person ahead of you to shut it on you. EVERYONE is in a huge hurry & it's me me me to be 1st.

Not a big deal at the mall, but at 5am in a campground or 11pm next door is really rubbing me the wrong way.
I turn my horn off in setup. When going camping I also turn off the flashing lights when I lock the truck, takes all of 10-15 seconds. But most people don't give a hoot as it's not "bothering" them. It's called "Don't Care".
