My wife can't drive a stick. Approximately 2x/year this creates a logistical problem that we need to work out. I'm willing to deal with that occasional inconvenience.
I'm sure she'd prefer it if I bought my cars configured so that she could drive them. But she knows that's not going to happen unless someone blows my left kneecap off.
