Default Oil Change it's a Guy thing

1. Pull up to Jiffy Lube when the mileage reaches 3000 miles
since the last oil change.
2. Drink a cup of coffee.
3. 15 minutes later write a check and leave with a properly
maintained vehicle.
Money spent: Oil Change $20.00 Coffee $1.00 Total $21.00

Oil Change Instructions For Men:

1. Wait until Saturday, drive to auto parts store and buy a
case
of oil,
filter, kitty litter, hand cleaner and a scented tree, write a
check for $50.00.
2. Stop by 7 - 11 and buy a case of beer, write a check for
$20.00, drive home.
3. Open a beer and drink it.
4. Jack car up. Spend 30 minutes looking for jack stands.
5. Find jack stands under kid's pedal car.

14. Spend 30 minutes looking for oil filter wrench.
15. Give up; crawl under car and hammer a screwdriver through
oil filter and twist off.
16. Crawl out from under car with dripping oil filter
splashing oil everywhere from holes. Cleverly hide old oil filter among
trash in trash can to avoid environmental penalties. Drink a beer.
17. Buddy shows up; finish case of beer with him. Decide to
finish oil change tomorrow so you can go see his new garage door opener.
18. Sunday: Skip church because "I gotta finish the oil
change." Drag pan full of old oil out from underneath car. Cleverly dump
oil in hole in back yard instead of taking it back to O'Reilly to recycle.

Re-shovel oily dirt into hole. Steal sand from kids sandbox to cleverly
cover oily patch of ground and avoid environmental penalties. Wash drain
plug in lawnmower gas.
29. Discover that first quart of fresh oil is now on the
floor. Throw kitty litter on oil spill.
30. Drink beer.
31. Crawl under car getting kitty litter into eyes. Wipe eyes
with oily rag used to clean drain plug. Slip with stupid crescent wrench
tightening drain plug and bang knuckles on frame.

I never have understood why a lot of guys feel it necassary to change their own oil. For less $$$ and time it's much easier to let the dealership or quick lube do it.

Guess it's just a guy thing???

It is funny though.

It's a guy thing, same as never stopping to ask for directions. We just don't do that!

My dealer changes the oil for $14.95, and washes it. I can't afford to waste that much time. It takes away from drinking.
