A Surprisingly Useful Skill

November 8, 2010

I don’t want to make light of people’s serious misfortunes, and God be with the victims, and the robbers, and may justice be done, and His kingdom come, et cetera.

That said, I loved this, from today’s issue of the UC student newspaper:

The suspects took Miller’s keys, wallet, cell phone, backpack and gum.

While Miller ran upstairs to his home, he noticed the suspects were trying to steal his car.

“The only reason they didn’t steal it was because he didn’t know how to drive a stick shift,” Miller said.  “You must push on the clutch to get it to start.”

  1. According to this blogger, “it isn’t easy to find cars with clutches anymore,” and a car magazine has launched a campaign “dedicated to putting more manual transmissions on the road.”
