I remember once flashing vigerously in annoyance at someone, and having the stalk snap off in my hand... #-o

Yup, that's pretty much how it went...although you've missed out the bit where I wanted to throw the bloody stalk out the window at the idiot in the other car!

Not always used to the varying controls in different models of cars......I must admit to having in the past given a vigorous windscreen wash at some people who've annoyed me... :oops:

Kwolity - I too have been frantically pressing the steering wheel in anger only to discover the horn is on the stalk.

More recently on the motorbike I gave someone a long hard blast on the kill switch which is on the opposite side to the horn switch and is a different bloody colour - another day where Mr Brain was obvioulsy having a little vacation.
