who else has the bad habit of not using a clutch?

anyone else here have a bad habit of shifting the lazy way, and not using the clutch? i try to concentrate and get out of the habit, but i do it without noticing now. i dont even drive a big rig!!! it just shifts so nice without it! i guess if my clutch pedal wasnt so stiff i might actually use it. i would hate to fry my sinchros

Back when I worked at the lumberyard they had an old Ford with a 460 and I hardly ever used the clutch loaded or not.

Once in a great wile but it's very hard on a synchronized trans so I try not to. But I started driving 13 speed big trucks at 13 years old and spent 25 years grinding gears off and on. So when my auto pilot kicks in I am known to grab one without the clutch now and then but it's a BAD habit!!
