Doug’s wife keeps her car really messy and Doug’s a neat freak. He’s been able to avoid sharing cars because she can’t drive stick. He needs to replace the Golf, and she’s suggested an automatic, so she can drive it. What should he do? Tom and Ray say avoid the marital stress and skip the automatic. Ray says to tell wife stick will give better gas mileage. Tom suggests arguing he needs a stick shift to “preserve his manhood.”
