Not at all. I've driven stick shift all my life and don't like having to use
automatic when in the USA.

I infer that it's hard to find stick shift cars at U.S. rental
agencies. Are stick shift cars the standard at rental agencies
elsewhere? Or just more common?

I had the excuse to buy a sporty car when my eldest was 15 - because I
wanted her to learn to use a stick. My wife finds sticks to be too
much work. She missed out on the fun.

I drive a stick shift but it is in a sports car that I bought new in
1988. You mostly have to special request it in the USA these days if
you want a car with a stick shift.
