Quite the misogynist post there... I like it!!!

Anyway, I think that the coffee is free at Jiffy lube. The lubes cost $30-40 in Philly, so the coffee better damn well be free.

ROFLMAO that was great. my first oil change on my brothers car was missing a few of those steps(DUI, beer, burying the oil etc) but i did drop the drain lug in the oil pan. its fun as hell to do it yourself

I have a couple of those big flat plastic oil pans sold at PepBoys. They are enclosed with only a small hole for the oil to drain into so that when I drop the drain plug (and I always do) it doesn't go into the drained oil. The next change I am installing a Fumoto valve so no more drain plug:) . The WRX is really easy to change the oil though, doesn't even have to be jacked up to get to plug and filter.
