Missing oil cap

I stopped to get my oil changed on the way to work yesterday, since I thought it would save some time. I knew it was a mistake, but I did it anyway.

First of all, the special-price $20 oil change ended up costing $130 with all the extra services that got thrown in. Granted, they were things that I probably needed, but they kinda had me over a barrel, so to speak.

Anyways, today when I went outside to go to lunch, I noticed that the front end of Rocinante was sheeted in oil. Opening the hood, I found the entire engine and the inside of the hood to be coated with oil, and the oil cap missing.


So I had to spend my lunch hour driving back down to Boston Road to get my oil cap, get things cleaned up a little, and get a few quarts of oil replaced.
