Oh good, I thought I was the only one.
That's me! I learned to drive a stick when I began driving many (cough cough) many years ago. It is a skill that I tried SO SO SO hard to teach both of my daughters. Needless to say I failed. They saw no need to learn since they could buy a car that shifted on its own. LOL I still pride myself on the ability to drive a stick shift and my mad parallel parking skills. Go me!
