    Not trying to be cruel, just honest and in a somewhat joking manner as to not bruise those fine folks egos.

    I agree with this point. Especially if the horn is blaring. Either way, a $20 battery cable isn't going to much matter if the vehicle can be repaired.

    When I was a young a firefighter, I cut the cable on a car with the horn blaring. The captain wanted to know why I did excess damage to the car. I pointed to the telephone pole stuck about midway into the engine compartment and stated that I thought that was the least of the owner's problems.
