I was talking with my buddy today, who, like me, loves cars. He started arguing with me about what to call a manual transmission. Is it a "stick-shift" a "manual" or a "standard"?
Pit, what do you call it?
#2
MANual.

You're not girly enough of a boy for me, and you're not man enough to take the top. So like, sorry bitch but you ain't mine! Sorry.

Stick, manual. Never a standard - in fact, here in the States, I'd go as far as stating that automatics are the "standard."
#6
Manual. 3 on the tree ftw.

You should be careful what you say. Some asshole will probably sig it.

I'm guessing you drive an automatic.
#12
I usually just say "stick", but in America you really don't end up having to say that a lot like Flying Couch said.
#15
In Soviet Russia, car drives you!

But no really, manual seems to be the norm. Lots of people here in CA will call it stickshift, too.

Unfortunately. Most stupid assholes here don't even know what a transmission is.

I respect and value your opinion.

Just kidding. You're a fucking retard.

Why not just roll around naked in medical waste while you're at it?

actually I can drive both, and dont get why people feel the need to say that their name for something is the only thing to call it.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Well, if you'd pull the underwear out of your butt and look at my OP, you'd see that I simply asked what members of the pit call it, nowhere did I say that there is a right or wrong term for it. Have a nice day.

Usually standard, sometimes stick. I never call it a manual. That's the thing with the car's rules in.
