haha lol i too have fallen victim to doing a fubared oil change. i was just sitting aroung one day when i decided i think i need to change the oil. i have about 20 qts of oul from when my buddy worked at econo lube lying around, just went to get a filter. came home, drained oil. put the plug on workbench. phone rang, girlfriend. wanted to go to movies in a hurry so i hung up and changed the filter. it was the first time i changed the filter without cussing. it just came off pretty good and new one just slid into place. got out from under car and started to fill up new oil. got through 3 qts before i looked to the left and saw large puddle of black from coming out from under the car. my first reaction was WTF the dam filter is leaking. then i looked at the bench and saw the plug siting there. ^%(* *^%& $&%&%$ %^%^ yeah so running aroung garage panicking, WTF to do now, 3 qts of oil on ground and spreading. no kitty litter. i took all my shop towels and set them on top of it in a desperate attemt to stop the spread. worked. said F&(% it and crawled under, layed on top of oil puddle and put plug back in. filled 5 qts in it, drove my a$$ down to kragens and bought 2 industrial sized bags of kitty litter. came home and spread 1" thick carpet o' kitty litter across whole garage. took shower. by the time i was ready to go my dad came home and was cussing up a storm. my girlfreind decides to not wait and drives to my house and makes fun of me. all the neighbors hear all the commotion and come over to look at the dumbass i am.

you know what though, i learned a lesson. PUT THE PLUG IN BEFORE YOU FILL 'ER UP. i will never do that again.
