By saying that it wasn't my fault I am describing the whole incident itself. It started when the Gas guy left the dipstick sitting in my engine bay and ended when the oil read empty.
You failed to mention this in your first post, that could've eliminated a lot of confusion.

Either way, I overfilled my Sunbird one day, as I had just had the oil changed, checked it at night when I got home, and wasn't able to see the oil level on the stick. Of course, I freaked out, walked to the nearest gas station, bought four quarts, and started pouring. I put in two quarts before I regained my senses, went to bed, checked it in the morning, and everything was fine. But I did overfill the crankcase a little, and the lesson was to take a few minutes to think calmly and not let your imagination lead you down the path of doing something stupid.

Good luck, I feel for ya.
