    For real though auto transmissions are excruciatingly boring to drive to me.

    Automatic cars make driving SO easy it's boring, I get you, and on top of that because they are automatic, they have to go incrementally/decrementally through the gears so they are actually slower when making sudden stops to avoid accidents (eg: to sudden break on 5th gear you go through 4th-1st before stopping), meaning higher chance to cause pileups in large accidents!

    It’s also incredibly annoying how hard it even is to get a manual transmission car. At least in America. It was 7k dollars more for the “manual” version of my car. Ridiculous.

    I miss the good old times when cars allowed you to freely switch between automatic and manual by simply changing a small part of the engine... It was like 50€ for replacement part and you could swap the two indefinitely! Most car instructors here still use old cars just for that reason, much cheaper on their end than having two separate cars for auto/manua transmission!
