Oh, come on man, I am a chick and I can change my oil in less than 20 minutes. Don't go with this sexist bull crap. Hahah, that was actually pretty funny. I once knew a girl, and she was trying to save money, so she decided to change the oil in her car herself. So she ends up accidentally draining the transmission fluid and overfilling the oil. Her car was totally messed up after that, she had to get a new transmission installed. It was some funny crap.

What's sexist about it? Guys and girls do things differently. I'd be one of those just sitting there and relaxing.

I remember one time, when I had a Ford Festiva, I took it to get the oil changed at a Montgomery Ward. When I came back they were going through the things they'd done and they said they'd also changed the power steering fluid.

I said, "Thanks, but I don't have power steering!"

Ahh man, that was funny. And surprising to see from the airplane expert. But I never considered drinking a beer during the oil change. I have the ability to change my oil fast enough before my buzz wears off.
