In the UK everyone drives manually (’cause automatics are waaay more expensive and there’s less choice here,) and I can openly say that I’ve failed my driving test four times. Not because of the manual car, but because of nerves. I am highly jealous of our American friends who can drive for hours alone on one straight line and not meet anyone for hours.
Having said all that, RZ Cole, while you cannot drive stick, at least you can bloody drive. Legally.
