Police in Knoxville, Tennessee say two men tried to jack a car, but were foiled by the stick shift.

Jamel Wilson and an unnamed juvenile accomplice approached the driver with drawn weapons, forcing her to the ground. But after hopping in they realized it had a manual shift that neither of them knew how to work. Womp, womp, womp, womp.

They got out and took off on foot, but patrol units in the area quickly spotted and arrested them.
