Oil change mess

I changed my oil for the first time yesterday and boy did I make a mess! I've done hundreds of oil changes and rarely spill a drop. I lined up my oil pan, I usually line it up so the edge of the pan is right at the hole to catch the last few drops. I've never seen oil shoot so far out when I removed the plug. It must have shot 3 feet out!

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
