Your vehicle anti-theft alarm system has been activated (My G35)
I'm digging the Mini, but there's nothing pretty about me driving a stick in the rain. There are a lot of girly shrieks followed by cries of "OMG We're going to die!" and "I'm trying! I'm trying!" when I stall the damn thing, which fortunately isn't often now.
Seriously, what is the draw to manual transmissions? I cry now every time I see a STOP sign, and I've never done as many California Stops as I have in the past week.
The novelty of a manual transmission wears off after like 5 minutes. It's so NOT like Xbox at all (Xbox doesn't lunge). I can't ever change the radio station or even scratch an itch. Hands, both feet—it's like a full body workout.
Sadly, apparently my car's in the shop for yet another week. I asked the nice lady at the car rental place to please find me an automatic Mini. She was supposed to call me back but never did. We hate her now.
I guess at least the rain stopped.
