You could write it on your hand when you drive an auto. Just in case you forget.

that's a really good idea writing PRNDL on your hand... hahahahaaaa I'm so going to do that at driver's ed during the drives... my driver's ed place only has automatics but i only have a manual so whenever i get in those cars i'm like "Ahhh where's the flipping clutch!!!" and yeah..

i learned how to drive on a manual, i think it's better than starting on an auto because if you go from an Auto to a Manual you're like "ahh there's this extra pedal!" but if you go from a manual to auto you're like "ahh there's something missing!!"

and uh... that's all...

My first manual transmission lessons were to get into the tow truck at the gas station I worked at, put it into creeper low, then start the engine and roll out in gear. The 1 - 2 shift is way easier for a beginner than a launch.

I could believe that one will turn into SEO spam after we've all forgotten about it.
