Changed oil today, What a mess!!

I get out to the garage today to change oil and without thinking, I dropped the oil and changed the filter. After a little bit, I looked underneath to check the status, and oil was all over the floor.
I know my pan holds enough, and it was empty when I started, so what did I do wrong?

I know that the engine should be warmed up before changing the oil, but is that what caused it to overflow my pan?

This is the second time that it has happened to me, but the first time I didnt have all the oil out of the catch pan before dropping the oil.

Could be quite a bit of fuel dilution from a bad injector o-ring or two.

I had this happen, had to remove the center plug where the oil drains into the tank. It would come out of the truck faster than going into the tank. And the bigest one I could find, is just barely big enough.
