Thinking about today’s phrase “Where are my keys?” has me reminiscing about when I LOST the keys to my old, little car when I was a teenager, so my brother let me take his car… which was named Aisha, had no power steering, and was a stick shift. Only problem was that I didn’t know how to drive stick, and no one wanted to show me how. So! I googled it.
I read those instructions so many times. Poor me. Youtube was not around yet! Oh, man. I ended up printing the instructions after reading them a million times, got in the car, re-read them as I went through the motions, and went for it. I was fine all the way down hill. But then, later, going up hill at a really busy stop sign, I got stuck. The car kept stalling, and I kept starting it again. And again. And again.
I was so embarrassed. It felt like an eternity as all the cars just waited. After praying my soul out, the car started and moved forward. Dying of embarrassment, I looked left at one of the waiting cars and a car full of laughing guys from my high school waved at me as they watched me finally go through the intersection. 😆Thank you everyone in my family for not teaching me to drive stick. lol
Do you have a funny story from your early years of driving?! I’d love to hear it!
