Interesting observation about muscle memory

Mainly that mine is pretty damned strong. I drove a saturn for 8-9 years. I’ve been driving a Mazda3 now for about about a year and a half, and I still screw up the windshield wiper controls and the headlights – my muscle memory takes over and I do what I used to do with the Saturn rather than what I ought to be doing for the Mazda. It’s been gradually getting better but I’d still estimate that more than 1/4 of the time, I screw up. Weird huh?
