I just thought you guys would get some laughs (or fear) out of this. I made the bid sheet for reg/temp last week. My only experience with stick shifts were in tractors floating gears 3 years ago. My driver test was for tomorrow, but I told the on-car supe I need to practice first since I never really used a clutch. He said cool, grab an 800, and drive it around the lot. I just wanted to get used to shifting again. I start, I'm doing okay. The center manager hops on, then I'm scared to hell, my PT supe is encouraging me with the ol' point and laugh bit, and here were my screw-ups. No seat belt, parking brake still on (pretty bad eh?) so he tells me drive around. I'm thinking to myself I'm pretty boned now! I didn't grind the gears, started from a hill without drifting, and backed to a dock fine, so I'm feeling pretty confident, but forgot the damn horn. He asked me what was the 3rd 10 point commentary was, so of course I respond with the ever classic "umm...what?". Does anyone have a decent way to learn these things? They're mostly common sense, but word-for-word is a pain.
