I remember once, borrowing a friend's car when mine was broken down. I was used to mine, which was a standard...hers was an automatic. Heading towards a red light, I instinctively slammed my left foot down on the clutch, only it wasn't the clutch of course...it was the brake.
If I hadn't been wearing a seatbelt, I would have likely catapulted right through the windshield. Good thing nobody was right behind me.
Have you had to 'stop' on a steep incline, and use your parking brake (hand brake) yet? That was tricky to master. I kinda miss driving a standard...it feels more like you are actually controlling the vehicle.
