This may not be a unique story but it was really funny at the time;
When I was thinking about buying my first car, my friend who already owned one told me, “You know, you will save a lot of money if you can do your own tune-ups and maintenance.”
Then he announced that for my first lesson he was going to show me how to change the oil in a '65 Volkswagen Beetle (30w).
He parked his bug next to the curb in front of his house and then reached underneath with a socket wrench and removed the plug and drained the oil. Then he showed me how to remove the round plate to replace the filter and gasket. I watched as he emptied and poured fresh oil into the air cleaner and started pouring oil into the engine. I knew at the time that this was a valuable lesson to learn from the master and that I would always remember this day.
He was about to begin pouring in the second quart when I noticed a liquid was running down the street’s gutter. I asked him, “What’s that?” He looked down and then up at me and said, “OH SH!T!!! I forgot to replace the oil plug!”
He jumped down next to his car and found the plug and started to screw it in, but he was so anxious that he couldn’t line the plug up to allow him to tighten it. All this time oil was running out of the hole and down his arm and getting all over his shirt.
Eventually, he was able to fix things and finish the job. He told me that despite the technical difficulty he still saved money.
When I stopped rolling over on his front lawn laughing until my sides hurt, I asked him, “How much did you save?” He said, “I saved a few bucks for sure” (If I remember correctly, oil was about 35 cents per quart at stores back then).
Then I asked, “Did you take into consideration the amount you paid for your shirt?”
“#&&!!$$ Y*u!!”, he answered.
I learned a lot that day.
