A group of would-be car thieves in Massachusetts is thwarted after realizing none of them could drive a stick shift.

The men held up a delivery driver in Springfield on Tuesday night, demanding his food and the keys to his car, police told The Associated Press.

Then they realized the car had a manual transmission.

The men argued among themselves for a bit before making off with the food, The Republican reported.

The driver was not seriously injured, and no arrests have been made.
