AutoBlog: Reason #6,342 why manual transmissions are better than automatics

Ha ha ha! Look, what kind of carjacker are you if you can't drive a stick? The only one that pops to mind is Vincent Gallo's character in Buffalo 66 when he tried to unsuccessfully steal Christina Ricci's car, "I'm used to luxury cars. Have you ever heard of a luxury? That's what I drive. I drive cars that shift themselves." And that's essentially what happened when a very bad criminal tried to car-jack a nice nurse in Reno, NV.

Armed with a B.B. Gun, 23-year-old Kent Howard Boedicker allegedly attempted to jack a 57-year-old RN's Hyundai. After forcing the lady out of the car and climbing inside, Boedicker then got out and handed her the keys back stating, "I don't need these anymore." Thanks to his terrible non-existent driving skills, Reno police were able to apprehend Boedicker in a Save-Mart parking lot. Cheers to Mr. Mack for the tip!
