There are some days at work that are rougher than others, and we all have them. Thankfully for most of us, those days and moments aren't typically captured by video camera. For one worker at an auto repair shop, however, that wasn't the case. He got to experience a new low recently, which involved a routine task, an awkward moment and giggling coworkers.

We can practically see Exxon Valdez captain Captain Joseph Hazelwood and BP public relations agents blanching from here. Click past the jump to soak it all in.

      I've seen this exact thing happen a bunch of times, never to the same tech though, they learn pretty quickly to watch for the floor drain when moving the oil caddy around. Its also fun when they ask you to pump oil for them and forget that they have a full bucket already under the spigot and the handle is up.. a scrambling tech is a funny tech in a boring shop sometimes.

        When I worked in a shop we used to have fun watching newbies drain these things. You'd close the top valve, open the drain valve, and then hook an air supply line up to it to pressurize the tank (otherwise it would take all day to empty). What was always hilarious was when someone either forgot to shut off the top valve, or opened it too fast and too soon when it was 'done'. Oil would shoot out the top and cover the poor shmuck in a fine black mist. Most people only did it once. :)

      Aw man, I feel sympathetic for the guy. That's why I'm overly cautious when moving around oil, I'm paranoid that would happen to me.

      If the guy has been working there for a few days, you think he would've known about that gully running down the middle of the shop floor.

        Actually, they would probably use the squeegee blade and degreaser for getting rid of this.

      So how did they clean it up? They probably did it the lazy way and just hosed it down a drain... poisoning the local water supply. Idiot.

        Wow........calm down. The drainage system installed in dealers like the one you see here, are not connected to local sewage for reasons like this. They are on their own contained system and then pumped out every few months by a recycling service.

          My car doesn't drip a drop, if yours does maybe you should have it fixed.
