Automatic / manual car confusion!

I've driven a manual car for years and years. Just before Christmas, I got a lovely new automatic. My situation means I'm currently driving both of them a few times each week (long story for another time...). But I get confused whenever I swap. In the automatic, I find my left hand reaching for a job-existent gear stick and my left foot wants to press a clutch that's not there. The reverse happens in the manual. This has been happening for 6 weeks! Am I particularly slow and stupid or has anyone else had this happen to them? confusedconfusedconfused

I drive both and have no issues swapping continually, but that probably doesn't help smile

It does eventually become second nature
