    ...because I was driving the new car and kept missing 3rd gear, putting it back into 1st instead


    I think this was terribly unfair, as I've not even passed my driving test yet ( I've got my theory test tomorrow though, wish me luck)


    Luckily I found out today that I perfectly capable of parallel parking, despite never actually having done it before

    Drivers get stressed easily, expect more shouting, just put some tunes on and ignore em

    What sort of car is it? Most decent cars have something clever in the gearbox to stop that from happening

    and how many times did you lose the gear to achieve that

    True that. You always have to assume that is the case.

    ...except the guy that mowed down Seedler, I'd like to meet him/her and buy them a pint

    Dropping from 2nd to 1st after speeding up to go to 3rd gives the gerabox a good workout and is therapeutic for the neck muscles

    I think if Skweeks does that in the new car the shouting will stop and all will go very quiet indeed.
