If you're going to make a living stealing cars, you'd better learn how to operate a stick shift. That's the hard lesson some Orlando carjackers will have to ponder while they hope police don't catch them. 

ORLANDO, FL (Catholic Online) - Two would-be carjackers targeted a nice corvette outside of the Orlando Regional Medical Center. Armed and ready to roll, they ordered the victim out of his car and to get on the ground, which he did.

However, despite having the prize in their possession, they could not drive the car because they could not operate its stick shift, much to the amusement of their victim. At one point the thieves actually asked him how to operate the car.

Unable to operate the vehicle, the frustrated carjackers abandoned the car and fled on foot. They still made off with his wallet and phone, but left his car behind. Despite the fact they possessed a weapon, nobody was hurt.
