The other night my 18 year old step son wanted to change his oil in his truck. I told him to just go have it done, it is a pain in the butt. Then I got to thinking, he will never understand unless he does it at least once.
I warned him of everything, and assisted him through it all.
He takes off the drain plug, and gets oil all over his arm, as he is trying to move the pan because it shot out alot further than he expected. Then because it missed the pan, I told him he needs to clean up the spilt oil. Now that he has drained the oil and cleaned up the garage floor, I told him he needs to take his funnel and pour the old oil into empty containers so he can take it to the local auto parts store to recycle. Well, he spilt more oil on the floor, the container is covered in oil, and he is now starting to get really pissed, and I am laughing my ass off. I told him, you have not even got to the oil filter yet, he just looked at me, hesitated, and asked if I would do it, well he cleaned the floor up again. So I did, and I don't think he will be changing his own oil again any time soon.
