First time I drove an auto (which was only 5 months ago), I was fine as I was thinking about it. Now that I use both cars regularly, if I have only driven one for a while and change, I'll make stupid mistakes like hitting the brake in an attempt to use the clutch, or forgetting that you have to press the clutch when you come to a stop.

Out of curiosity, roughly how many cars have you driven? The idea of being somewhere where autos aren't commonplace is crazy (in a good way) as someone who has relatively few peers that have learned to drive a manual.
