    I feel your pain!

    Now my issue is I can't drive an automatic. Sometimes I think it's my old 10 speed, when I'm pulling into traffic, and the auto shifts like senior citizens....well you know, slow and deliberate.

    I'm comfortable with manual or automated. My preference is automated, just because I'm lazy, but any time i have the choice, I opt for the manual truck, just to maintain the skillset. It's valuable. Sometimes.
