      No, Calamity Jean stopped trying to teach me before her car was badly damaged, but it sure sounded like I might be ruining the transaxle!

      but if you can't drive a standard Rabbit, you can't drive.

      I know that's harsh....but it is what it is.

        ...there are automatics. What's the big deal? Automatics have been improved to the point where they don't ruin mileage. If you buy a hybrid, they only come with an automatic. If you want to feel smug about being good at manual transmissions, well...

        •  it's okay, Jeff...really, it is. (0+ / 0-)

          not everyone can do everything.  I'm sure you're good at what you really do.

          Just because you can't drive a stick doesn't make you any less a meng.

          I'd rather know how to make the traffic lights turn green at my convenience than know how to work a shift.

          •  Well, I used to be able to do the signal... (0+ / 0-)

            ...thing, at least in Chicago, until I retired!
