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.

    Yes, much easier to fix in a generator than in a cake recipe!! If that makes you stupid, then we is all stoopid.

    I was hoping someone would call me an idiot so I wouldn't miss Dw as much.

    Okay, you're an idiot.


    :sshhh: Not really, I've done it too with DS's dirtbike. I guess that makes me an idiot too!
