On my way into work I performed the worst hill start in the history of man.

I was going up a steep hill, met a van, slowed down but I thought I would have still been ok in 2nd, I was very wrong and I stalled gloriously. I smashed down the brakes and pulled the hand brake very quickly and then started going back up.

Now that would have been fine if my feet were doing something similar, but they didn't, gas down, engine making a noise and about 1 second later my clutch foot finally gets the message and I was off.

If there was a learner behind me, no doubt they would have laughed.
