Person Really Needs Driving Lessons; a vehicle with a PRNDL (automatic) transmission is for people who don't know how to drive a real car (with a manual transmission or "stick shift")
I asked my friend what that PRNDL thing was in the center console of his car. I hadn't seen anything like that before, since my vehicle says 1-2-3-4-5-6-R. I figured it was an acronym for Person Really Needs Driving Lessons, since I didn't know how to use the PRNDL thing.
