start/stop woes

I understand some of you have already gotten used to this Start/stop way of starting or shutting off the car. I picked up the car in Germany and wat taught these proceedured of starting/shutting off the car by the delivery advisor in the Welt. Like a first timer, it have engraved into my contiousness. However, I still think turning the keys are a lot more intuitive.

I have been using auto/start/stop feature when driving. The car would shut itself when I am done parking the car, but when I press the SS button to shut off the car (muscle memory), I always end up starting the car again. I try to remember not to press the button, but it's just a hassle.
