Tell us how you embarrassed yourself!!

Let me start it off I remember when I was jumping out my car one day , and me being in such of a rush I didn't put the car in park. So as I jumped out the vehicle kept rolling, and It crashed into a dumpster in front of a group of college chicks waiting for the library to open...lol There was minimum damage, but I felt like such an idiot, and was laughed at severely.

was driving in my freshly bought e32 with a friend of mine and wanted to feel its power a bit. As i went to shift from 1st to second i pulled the gearnob/shifter of (or how do u call it), apparently it wasn't a very good fit by previous owner and with a little bit more pulling on it came loose. there i was driving in second gear with the gearnob in my right hand

Garage
After I fitted my short shift kit and my manual swap (1st time I ever drove an e30 manually) I first had some problems getting into 1st gear. So there I was at the traffic light, with a nice 350Z behind me, and when the light turned green I accidentally shifted into reverse. Luckily I noticed it before I took off, so I then tried to shift into 1st. Didn't really work, I actually got into 3rd gear, so I took off with the car shaking and rumbling.

Yeah, I can drive stick-shift now
