When learning to drive a stick....

When learning to drive a stick....

Roundabouts are your friend! I used to hate them but now I love them!

I got my first honk today, too. Yes, I stalled. I did it just to piss you off. I knew you were in a hurry to get somewhere and I wanted to steal those 15 seconds of your life that it took me to restart and go. They are mine now and never coming back. I'm saving them in a jar right next to my jar of tears. I've wasted thousand, no millions of seconds and I'm still ok. Somedays I might even be cool. Ok, not really because I can't do text messages to my husband when the phone guesses what you are trying to type.

I have a new appreciation for new drivers now. So, be kind, be kind.

Oh...I thought I was the only one who can't handle the phone guessing text messages thing. And I don't know why it does that only some of the time. Thank you for making me feel so much better.

This post was hilarious! Don't worry--driving a standard quickly becomes second nature. Until then, keep pissing off as many people as you can.

I found your post via Parent Bloggers. That post was HILARIOUS! I

t's been years since I've driven a stck, but I promise it will soon be old habit for you!

Love that you are an aspiring chef. Me too, though I never have time anymore to actually cook.

Ha! Keep up the driving! You'll do great! (It took me about a week to get used to driving a manual. And then I thought it was too cool. I was kinda sad when that car finally gave out, and our next purchase wasn't manual.)

I can't text with my phone trying to read my mind, either. Way too annoying. And how dare that little thing PRESUME to know what I'm berating my husband about?!
