That awkward moment when...

You transition from a manual transmission car to an automatic. I cant count how many times ive moved my left foot and right hand when slowing down in my ranger already... i've only put 50 miles on the dang thing too.

I was driving moms fusion once and she was riding. I went to pass a car in front of me. Needless to say the massive foot and hand jump, then me going, "goddamn it" made her laugh.

This happend to my dad when he first moved to the us. He was in the highway doing 70, wanted to pass a car, so he went to "downshift" forgetting he was in an automatic, and when pressing the "clutch" he accidentally slammed on the breaks lol

That reminds me of one time when I was driving the sixxer. I had put boots on for the first time in a while, and I went to shift and punched the clutch pedal, and the side of my boot caught the brake pedal. Lol I thought I was going through the windshield.

I pretty much switch driving my cars 60/40 but have never hit the brake instead of the clutch. I have pumped my foot at the air though. The worst thing I've done was when I drove my Mustang for a few days in a two and then the next morning drove the little turbo vert. Anyways I came cruising off of the freeway and came to a smooth stop without pushing the clutch in. Needless to say I came to a sudden jerky stop, stalling out the car. Forgot to mention my boss was right behind me and still gives me shit to this day.

I slammed on the brakes when I test drove the G6, trying to go for the clutch, and about killed the poor salesman that didn't have his seatbelt on.

Other than that though, I'll occasionally reach down and rest my hand on the shifter when I want to shift out of instinct, but other than that, I don't look for the pedal or try to move the shifter anymore.

I've forgotten how to start an automatic before. I'm used to pressing the clutch in before starting my Focus so when I got in my mom's Camaro, I sat there for a minute trying to figure out to start it and then finally realized you just have to turn the key. I felt pretty stupid.

I've done it with the Bronco. It has the tall 4WD shifter in it and I've grinded that transfer case trying to put it in "2nd gear". lol

It's funny that when it's the other way around, it always seems so relieving.
