I hate it when I am stupid

I had a pretty good day today. I spent most of it in the shop servicing equipment. I changes the oil in the riding lawnmower and then moved to the generator. I pulled the manual and added the appropriate amount of oil. When I checked it, it was too full. Then I realized my mistake. The lawnmower takes two quarts. The generator takes one and five-eights PINTS. I was undone by the units. I added one and five-eights quarts so no wonder it was too full. I had to drain enough out to reach the correct amount. I am just glad I checked it instead of assuming it was correct.
