No, I cannot.
Opinion: 1) a view, judgment, or appraisal formed in the mind about a particular matter 2) belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge
This is the internet, learn to let people have opinions. And don't be so sensitive.  8)

Absolutely love driving stick shift. Just bought a new Subaru, requested stick shift and found that it was fifteen hundred dollars cheaper. Apparently less than ten percent of Americans know how to drive stick so the resale value is lower. I just hand the cars to my kids and let them worry about reselling the vehicles. Hasn't happened yet as they usually burn out the engine or crash the cars. I have a nineteen sixty five jeep CJ (I call her Iron Maiden) that has two stick shifts (one is for overdrive, or, an extra half gear). It requires the clutch to be double pumped in order to down gear into first gear. Both kids learned on that car. I live in Colorado and have only put the hard top on twice. I have put the bikini top on when it rains but pretty much leave her topless. My wife has a little sports car that has the paddle shift.

I can not drive a stick shift. I would not mind trying to learn one day because you never know if you may be in a situation where you need to drive a stick shift.

I learned how to drive on a stick, but I haven't driven one since, so I'm not sure.   ???

Yes.  My first two cars that I bought were sticks.  I bought my first car and didn't even know how to drive it so I drove my mother's car and she drove mine until I learned.  My current car isn't a total stick but I can drive it as one but I haven't done it yet

I Never could get the hang of it. I do not have any problems when driving the tractor, I think that is because no traffic behind me honking.

Yes, my pickup truck is a stick shift. I haven't driven an automatic in years.

Yes, my hubby taught  me but I don't like it.  Give me an automatic.   All that shifting gears and clutch work is not my cup of tea.
