Today, I drove my new car with a manual transmission for the first time by myself. I was at a stoplight and saw a cute guy in the car next to me. He looked my way and gave me "the nod". The light turned green and I tried to go but I stalled out, lurching my car forward right into the car next to me. FML

YDI for not knowing how to drive a stick shift.

@4, have you ever stalled a car in gear? She prob popped the clutch without giving enugh gas which causes the car to launch forward and then stall fr not giving enough gas. So yes you can stall a car and lurch it forward, still though YDI for trying to race without practice.

How did you lurch forward into the car next to you? That doesn't quite make sense.

Agreed. I say fake cause if you were close enough to lurch and hit the car, why were you trying to accelerate into it?

102 what the fuck

next the op is going to smoke the clutch, then destroy the tranny

YDI for being a woman driver.

Why? What's wrong with being a woman driver? BTW statistics show we drive just fine, it's the men that have more potential for crashing and making accidents. Stupid sexist. http://editorial.autos.msn.com/article.aspx?cp-documentid=788126

Stalling your car wouldn't cause you to lurch forward. When a car stalls, it turns off. It might be able to roll backwards into a car, but not lurch forward. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/stall

You know, you could have just explained it to me without insulting me. I'm a mature person, and will gladly admit when I'm wrong. I based my information off of what I've been told about driving stick shifts by my friends and family. Thank you for pointing it out to me, and now I'll know better for next time.

First hand knowledge is better than second hand knowledge.

Reply without insult? This is the internet. Replying without insulting gets you insulted. Here is my obligatory insult-Fuck farmville woooooooooooo!!!!!

yeah what's so great about Farmville anyway? I tried it and fail to see the appeal.. then again I dont have the need to play a game that requires me to check on it every 30 minutes, guess that might be why i didn't like it ;p

You should really change your profile picture. Or lose some weight. My eyes are scarred...

agreed!

valuable life lesson here: if you're telling someone off for something, you better be sure you have your shit straight no offense, 4, i mean this just as a useful principle in general

wait, are you the OP? (AndelleRae) If so, then why did you post a fake FML. If your are basing your knowledge of what you've heard from friends and families, then did you not experience this ordeal? I'm confused...

Stupid American's just driving automatics. Get your facts straight first, moron. a similar thing happened to me when I got rear-ended. My car was stopped but in gear and because of the shock I took my foot off the clutch and lurched into the car in front of me.

Actually when you stall in a manual, it can lurch forward

@4, have you ever stalled a car in gear? She prob popped the clutch without giving enugh gas which causes the car to launch forward and then stall fr not giving enough gas. So yes you can stall a car and lurch it forward, still though YDI for trying to race without practice.

Stoplight? Sounds like a bad english translation of Dutch.

woman. this word explains everything

You wish you had one?

He obviously is referring to the fact that she is a woman, and therefore incapable of doing anything and HOW THE FUCK DO YOU DRIVE A CAR IN THE KITCHEN!?!?!

lol nice

he gave you "the nod"? whats "the nod"? Last time I checked, when somebody nods at somebody else, it doesnt mean they love them

I was thinking the exact same thing

Think OP means the "Let's race" nod.

jisaac09 25

COME ON PEOPLE STOP BEING SOOOOO FREAKIN STUPID!!!!!!! It was the "Hey woman, ram your car into my car where we can exchange info" nod...... u know the nod you've prolly did it once or twice....

you tool. you managed to hit the car next to you or u hut the person in front. you need miore practice. it ain't hard to drive stick man.

Judging by #9's response, it's got to be easier than trying to write a single coherent, comprehensible sentence.

*Hit *More There, now its understandable. Because its so hard to read them words the way they are typed..............

YDI for being in a no-lurching zone
