I broke my right hand once and the cast made it so I couldn't shift the truck, being the dumbass I am I grabbed my trusty pocket knife and carved the cast out so I could grasp the shifter. The bone healed but it has a nice curve in it now, form fit to a semi shifter knob.
"But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." - Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1782
Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
