Americans love their autotragics.
Also, mrcbenny, what the hell do you mean, "women, too"? Sexist bastard.
Another bashing stumble.
I stared at this for a while, and had to come here to find out what the joke was. Maybe it's just my area of the US, but there are only a few people I know who can't drive a stick.
I love running through the gears.
While I think it is kind of a dumb joke, I can see it resonating with some people. In fact, just last week my girlfriend made the same joke that no one would steal my car because, "I'm only one of three people in America who drive stick." Which is weird, because most of the guys I meet in Wisconsin consider it mandatory for a "man" to know how to drive stick.
Ok well since everyone else has to get all defensive let me be the first to say...
Not prevent, only... deter. Maybe.
I miss my stick shift :'(
I saw a 4chan thread asking whe Europe was so silly because one of its cars HAD A THIRD PEDAL.This will probably work.
Huh? I'm American and I drive a stick. Several of my friends drive sticks. I was not aware of this stereotype.
As long as we're throwing around gross generalizations: I'd say it's more likely to stop your wife/girlfriend from driving your car than a car thief.
Chaosgear is pulling our legs. I thought everyone knew this stereotype. A middle-aged american woman once told me she didnt like it because it felt too much like a racing car. wtf.
I still say that everyone should learn to drive a stick.
Never heard of this stereotype before... I'm american, and drive a stick.
andresforero27 knows cos he always avoids stealing those cars...
I don't get it. I know how to drive stick, and it's extremely easy to learn. What's the big deal?
