Not all "sticks" are alike.

You could drive a Subaru with a manual trans, every day for 20 years, and not drive my GTO.

BMW's are that way, very finicky and you have to develop a feel for the engagement
That was the thing - especially in an environment like valeting, when you're dealing with hundreds of cars per day, there's no guarantee how good of shape anything is in. Even if you're driving your own personal Subaru every day for 20 years, the guy whose car you're parking didn't maintain the clutch at all, so it's a completely different feel than yours.

The idjuct in question - at the time he was employed with the company, it was sort of know your limitations. Pickups and Jeeps are generally easier to drive in a manual transmission because the torque and granny gear are much more forgiving than a sporty BMW...but said idjuct took advantage of that and would only park the nicest/most expensive cars and leave the 1998 Pontiac Bonnevilles in the lot (instead of the garage).

Before sone one says it. This guy makes sausages out of everything. Not sure why it’s funny, but it is.

So this guy bought himself a meat grinder and a K-Tel Sausage Maker, or got the latter as a Christmas present, and he makes sausage out of everything on his YouTube to make a buck off hits? Wow, I'm gonna pick up a used juicer at Goodwill and get in on this. Big Bucks are gonna come my way now. Might finally be able to afford that G&L Custom Shop Bass and the 18 month wait to get it including the 2 more times I'll need to send it back to fix mistakes and QC issues.

Sorry to hear of your troubles. I do hope it works out soon and you get back to musical bliss. I’m glad you are, overall, okay.
There is no musical bliss... There's just you wanting to have fun by sharing your brilliant wonders with the world, and your band fucking ruining the shit out of it, every time you try.

My BIL has a $200,000 BMW. They stole it from the mall and never made it out of the parking lot, so they abandoned it.

It's PBR the Thunderbird Wine of bottle beers. A skunk could piss in it and that alone would improve it's taste.

Personally I like my beer mixed with Bloody Mary Mix. Even Pabst can be improved that way.
How PBR became popular... The new gen... so desperate to be original, but devoid of any creativity, is forced to "cover" existing material.

Take something horrible and bring it back.

Hey, have you tried cauliflower pizza? OMG, you can barely tell the difference.

Tonight Im going to batter up and fry a litter-box turd, and then serve it with a belly button lint and toe cheese dipping sauce. But tomorrow it's cauliflower pizza!
