How can you let an ex girlfriend near anything you own, let alone near you?

lol I really didn't know how to put it into words. We don't date anymore but when we did she drove it. and after we broke up (we were cool at this point) I asked her to move it. lol she said she enjoyed the exhaust ALOT. ironically, she drives a 2010 focus now...and it's a manual

When i first heard i was getting a 5 speed as my first car, never haven driven one, I was bummed. I didn;t wanna have to think about driving. but now I wouldn't give it up for anything, except maybe a 6 speed in an st. lol. I know 3 kids my age (17) that can drive one, and I take every opportunity I get to teach someone because once I do, people never wanna drive automatic. I hate driving my moms car, because it's an auto

WOW! People are depressing. I don't know many people who can't drive a manual transmission. My entire family can drive one and so can my fiance. And i WILL teach my kids (when that day comes) how to drive one. I won't say I'll never own an automatic, I've been in enough traffic jams that sometimes I wish I had one. But I will hopefully always have a manual in my garage. I'm thinking my next vehicle will be an Escape, or another smaller SUV and they only come in auto's.

Certain vehicles are better as autos, IMO. I can't imagine driving a six speed Super Duty would be much fun.

This kind of story pops up a lot, surprisingly.

Pathetic.
