Got to admit, I don't see why anybody wouldn't learn in a manual. Besides simply being lazy to learn in an automatic, learning in a manual seems more practical, since then you can drive both.

Back in high school, my friends had repeated arguments about this point. It was kind of ludicrous that I actually joined in, but it was either that or feel really left out. I didn't have a cane to use to shut them up back then.

U23D is still playing here, at least until the end of August. Mind you, it finally arrived here at the end of April.

That's a really great point.

The salesman at the place I got my car tried to talk me into buying some clapped-out old Honda with 300,000km on the clock. No sale!!

It may well still be showing in Halifax Which is about a four/five hour drive.. I really really need a good reason to go to Hali since I don't particularly care for it. Personal reasons.. something I probably should, you know, get over.

in my case, it wasn't the salesperson that was doing the convincing, it was my parents. apparently, me having an automatic means anyone could drive the car, if someone else's were in the shop. once i had the damn car, i was like...fuck no, no one else is driving this thing! just me.

damn guilt complex

Yikes, it got here at the start of April. Whereabouts are you located?

Heh, this is one reason I'm glad I can't drive: buying a car seems to be one of the least enjoyable purchases you can make!

There's a very small salesyard near my tram stop. I've been waiting for the day when the owner decides he'll try to hock off a car to me as I walk past ...
