    I like being the designated driver, free water and the occasional lady drink all evening.

    That doesn't make sense.

    He probably means:

    Why would they always go out in his car and not one of theirs? If they go out in one of their cars, anybody can drive it. So him being the only one that can drive a manual, doesn't make any difference to who should be the designated driver.


    Thus, it doesn't make sense.

    Doesn't make sense to someone with a small brain. I understand.
    He's the only one in his group of poor uni students with a car.

    Are you projecting? You were the rich kid with the car who was used by his "mates". Is that why you're such a jerk now (still)? Chip on the shoulder won't go away?

    See, that's a piece of pertinent information you ommited.

    No. That situation is obvious in Maanaam's post.

    He is the only one who can drive manual so has to be designated driver. If other mates had manual cars they would drive them not him. So all his mates have automatic's or no car.

    That's right, except the plural of "automatic" is "automatics" in English.
    The info that they didn't have cars was missing, an omission which was immediately exploited, TD style.

    If all his mates have automatics why would he need to be the designated driver?
    It's the fact he's the only one with a car that would have made it clear.

    No it's not! 55555.
    I made an unimportant comment regarding manuals.
    I think it's very odd that you and Luigi couldn't surmise or infer a minor detail that was implied in the post.
    Well, not odd in Lu's case...not very bright that little man.

    Do you really think that was an important detail to give, given that the post was off-hand and inconsequential? Was it a deposition or testimony?
    Lu and Cujo didn't understand. Others did, or didn't care (rightfully so).

    I think most people didn't care if it was clear or not.
    I certainly didn't.

    No, read the second part of the sentence which you cut from the quote.

    Yeah...you still called it an ommission, which is the whole point of Cujo and Lu's dumbness.
    But I take your point.

    Well now, finally it is clear...but the 'clarity' just exposes Maanaam's stupidity.

    If his son was the only person with a car then whether it was an automatic or a manual is completely irrelevant.

    Readers did not surmise that his son must have been the only person with a car because they (wrongly) assumed that nobody could fail to put their brain into gear in the manner that Maanaam clearly has.

    Yet again!
