Epic oil change fail

I came across this oil change video and had a chuckle Murphy's Law at its best maybe he should have put finger over the drain and fished out the drain plug

Thanks, needed a laugh - that was my first oil change years ago..

Those funnel containers sure look neat when you see them on the store shelves though..

I was changing oil on my Chev Blazer with a 6" lift on a windy day and the drips were missing the drip pan so I put a chock under the pan vertical to lift it up went inside and came back out the pan fell upside down and all the oil was on the driveway what a mess but a little Gas and cat litter cleaned up the mess.

A fellow co worker told me this one....
He was changing on his oil in his old t-bird, (with his girlfriend) almost done, began to fill with new oil, phone rang, got called into house (way before cell phones). He came out and his girlfriend was just putting the last quart of oil in the 302, problem was, he had bought a case of oil. She put in OVER 11 quarts of oil in!! LOL

At least he didnt do what i did: i drained the oil, carefully slid the pan out,got out from under the car, stood up, and in the process of reaching for the pan, caught the edge of the pan with the toe of my boot! Water beaded up off that boot for months!

Now why would anyone film an oil change?

I usually just drain it out on the street in front of my house and then poast a sign saying free burnouts!! You wouldn't believe how the cheapest of cars can smoke the tires completely off the rims!

Because he was tying to do a how-to video? or maybe because to ask internet people 'Why does this happen?'
