Dumb As a Box of Rocks

I helped Htet Htet move some stuff she's watching for a friend over to her place last week. She was feeling sick (sounded like her lunch didn't agree with her) so we decided to go over to the Vietnamese place on Penn so she could get some soup. I hadn't eaten dinner yet, so I was defnitely down with the getting-food idea.

I offer to drive since she's feeling under the weather, and get there with no problem. Parallel-park the car, shut off the engine and grab the keys. *Tug tug* Wha? I know there's no release button for the ignition switch on this car. What da hell's going on?! I try a bunch of different key positions, nothing. Great, I think, her frickin' ignition switch broke while I was driving it. And she just got the thing inspected.

Y'know, there's a small difference between cars with an automatic transmission, like hers, and cars with a manual transmission, like mine. Cars with a manual transmission don't have to be taken out of gear before you remove the keys.
