I got ready to ease on over to the OC this morning to sign in for my quarterly PM. As I stepped out the truck I found a large puddle of oil running out from under my truck and down the lot. That's a bit disconcerting. But my dipstick showed full.
I mentioned it to the mechanics. They said, "Well, it's a weird thing, but a teaspoon of oil can make a large puddle. We'll check it out."
So now I sit here chillin the day away. Fortunately I scored a free meal because it's "Employee Appreciation Week." My wife has been bugging me about requesting a loaner so I can come on home.

WTF? You got my bed!
