" OIL CHANGE " Instructions

Subject: Oil Change:


__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.


Oil Change: $20.00

Coffee: $1.00

TOTAL $21.00


_1) Wait until Saturday, drive to auto parts store and buy a case of oil, filter, kitty litter, hand cleaner and a REDNECK scented tree, write a check for $50 .00 (Oil-Dri is way cheaper than "Kitty Litter")

_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.

_6) In frustration, open another beer and drink it.

_7) Place drain pan under engine.

_8) Look for 9/16 box end wrench.

_9) Give up and use crescent wrench.

10) Unscrew drain plug.

11) Drop drain plug in pan of hot oil: splash hot oil on you in process. Cuss.

12) Crawl out from under car to wipe hot oil off of face and arms. Throw kitty litter on spilled oil.

13) Have another beer while watching oil drain.

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 to be recycle!

19) Throw kitty litter on oil spilled during step 18.

20) Beer? No, drank it all yesterday.

25) Hurry to find drain plug in drain pan.

26) Remember that the used oil is buried in a hole in the back yard, along with drain plug.

27) Drink beer.

28) Shovel out hole and sift oily mud for drain plug. 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.
