Oil change foibles

Okay, mid-point oil change today. I've done this before, no big deal. Well, main drain plug comes out and proceeds to flip upside down into my drain pan's inlet. So, hot oil pouring out; I try to get it out with a screwdriver.
Didn't think until later that I could have used a magnet. Anyhow, about 2 liters of dirty oil flowed over the pan onto my garage floor, but it cleaned up pretty well in the end.

Always something new to learn - HOLD ONTO THE DAMN PLUG!
