If I wanted to continue working through the winter as a black-and-white clad busboy at Mayo's Steak House in Wichita Falls while in high school, my mom wanted me to get there on something other than a 90 cc dirt bike. My first four-wheeled vehicle (other than a little red wagon) was a used MG Midget. It was a blast driving it home, but I couldn't figure out why it would only get up to about 40 as I shifted through the gears. Eventually, I realized I was looking at the tachometer rather than the speedometer. Fortunately, I wasn't ticketed while inadvertently speeding down 8th Street.
