i was driving down the road one day and got pulled over for speeding. my car got impounded and i got a notice to appear bc my license was apparently suspended. apprently even if 2 of your 3 tickets are nollied you still have to attend a driver retraining course. the dmv decided not to inform me of having to attend a course or that my license had been suspended for at least 6 months. i had driven other peoples cars and had no idea i wasnt sposed to drive at all. my boyfriend drives my car if he needs to or i need him to. it never says the boyfriend knew it was suspended. the only stupid thing in this fml is that his friend tried to drive stick when he didnt know how.
Well this fml would suggest differently, clearly. The bottom line, actually, is that learning in an automatic car does not mean you can drive a manual, as its harder, and takes much more time to learn and pass a test in one. Therefore, if this is how its really done in America, then it IS stupid!
you think the guy was and idiot for thinking he could drive it when we couldn't? He blew up the motor in car (I am assuming by not shifting gears). You don't have to know how to drive a manual drive to know that a car in the red line for long enough to blow the motor just doesn't sound or feel right. Also, working a clutch and shifter is not like learning how to do non-linear equations in your head or operating a jet liner. I agree the friend is an idiot, a fucking idiot in fact, but we can justify him as an idiot on much better grounds then he shouldn't have tried to drive a manual when he didn't know how... shit, thousands of ppl learn to drive manuals when they don't know how each year without blowing shit up.
@12, actually yes they do. In some states cops can tow and impound a vehicle if the driver has a suspended license, regardless of whether it's his car. Otherwise, two people could just drive each other's cars and never worry about it. On the other hand, yeah... don't let someone with a suspended license anywhere near your car keys.
Looks like someone needs a new car AND a new boyfriend.
Why did you let him drive your car without a license?
