I wouldnt consider it unusual to put the handbrake on when parked. Often it can be refered to as the parking brake. So its just an out of habbit thing i do. Same as even if i parked it and left it in first, i still check what gear its in. Same as if someone else has driven it. I dont like change,
Although a few years back, my mate lent his van to an apprentice for a wholesaler run. My mate is one of those who leaves it in neutral, so clearly he cant be trusted. The apprenti parked the van, and left it in 1st as a trustworthy person does. My mate reached through the window to start it to get the ac cranking. It started alright. In 1st, and rolled into a building. It was hilarious. My mate was hating life at that point.

Speaking of clutches,
Came down from Beechworth yesterday (downhill with lots of bends and gear changing) in me old Trader loaded with 11 granite steps, got into the driveway of where I'm staying and boom blew the hydro clutch slave hose.
I hated that
but I guess I could have posted this in what made me feel good, as I did make it back and its now fixed. Enzed made me a new one.
