Angry Oil change time

well it's been another 3K miles (up to 73K now) and it's time for another oil change. I change my own oil, and I just wanted to complain about it because these cars are rediculously messy when it comes to oil changes. First off, the drainplug takes a 14 mm allen key, which is hard to find. Next, the drainplug is rather large, so the 9.5 quarts it takes comes rushing down all at once. Finally, the oil filter is located on the bottom of the car, so when you replace it, oil comes gushing all over (almost impossible to get all of it in the pan I use). I really hate doing this, but I love my car enough to do it myself. Just wanted to complain.
