How can I learn how to drive stick quickly?
I interview for a satellite installer position with Dish Network on Tuesday. I found out during my phone interview that all their trucks have manual transmission, and being able to drive stick is a requirement for the job. It's kind of embarrassing, but in the 16 years since I began driving, I still haven't learned how to drive stick. I really need this job, but have no friends or family that own a manual transmission car. Everyone drives automatics.

Check with a local driving school. Most have a manual car available at request. You can go for a few short lessons or like a single 4 hr class. Might run you about 100-200 bux.

Man, you'd better practice. All manuals are the same but they drive differently, especially the throw of the clutch , and trucks can be harder than passenger vehicles. Ask your friends and friends of theirs, and on and on.
