Okay, this is something a geezer like me would do. No excuse for your younger riders acting like dottering geezers. You sound like the guy that goes into the men's room, steps up to the urinal, unbuttons his vest and pees in his pants.
Here's the rule. Same rule applies to cell phone, sunglasses, pistol, and wallets. When you have them in your hand, you never set them down. You do what you have to do with them and then put them back where they belong. Only exception is your wallet when you've given someone your credit card. Then you sit it on the table in front of you until you get your card back.
When you check your oil you go to the bike prepared with a rag or paper towel. Pull the cap, wipe, check, replace the cap.
Everyone thinks you peed in your pants for the rest of the day, right?
