Yeah. My wife is extremely easy to please when it comes to transportation. Just like I'm extremely easy to please when it comes to preparing meals. Just put it in front of me and I'll make hay with it, even sans utensils.

I kinda wish she had a zeal to drive sticks, but she is the way she is.

So I buy her cars with automatics to please her, and to please me she prepares meals and now gives me a knife and a fork.

P.s. Shouldn't there also be a category of "Manual - cause I'm a cheap a$$!"
The path to God is clear, and it takes us to the cross.
