Here's another from the "stupid criminals" department. A young Florida man tried to steal an elderly man's car. KLFY reports, twenty five year old Jaylen Alexander wasn't able to steal the car because he can't drive a stick shift. Alexander attacked the man, got in the car & couldn't drive it away, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. He stole another car, but was arrested soon after. Alexander was charged with grand theft, carjacking, and battery against a person over age 65. I guess I'm dating myself. i learned to drive on a car with a manual transmission.
