    Well figured I would knock out a quick oil change on the wifes car today. So jacked it up and put the jackstands under and drained oil and pull filter. Put new filter on and put back in drain plug. Wife came out and said wow you're already adding the oil back in. Yep with a couple tim taylor grunts. couldn't find my normal funnel I use so used the long tranny type one. While dumping from the 5 Qt jug into the funnel I was shaded by the hood and had my sunglasses on. The funnel is black. :cool1: So I am thinking I should hold the funnel with one hand and the oil jug with the other. Just as I think this I see the level is really close to the top and the funnel swivels in the oil filler tube strewing oil on the motor, windshield, right front fender, headlght etc.

    Yep Master Mechanic am I :frown1:

    Don't fret... It happens to all of us...

    Was at a gas station that had the "Larry the Cable Guy" caps.. the real nice black with the partial confederate flag on the bill. Wanted to get it for my son, in college.. The next time went down by there a week later had momma's credit card to pick it up, and they still had the cap for sale(the only 1). Bought it and went and jumped in the truck to head home... Got back to the yard at work and looked for ir...COULD NOT FIND IT...Tore truck apart...Only thing could think happened, when me and other driver got in truck, left it on the fuel tank when I got in truck... Talkabout PISSED... Called store because we had receipt... Not there...OOOOHHHH WWWWEEEELLLLL......
