Default 2000 SE Oil dipstick woes

What'* up everyone? I'm new here and just found this fourm, it'* prety cool. Anyways, I have a '00 Bonneville SE and when I check the oil I get different readings. On one side of the stick it says it'* low, and on the other side of the dipstick it says it'* over full. Which side should I be reading? I put a put what the manual said in when I changed the oil, 4 1/2 quarts. I added just a little bit just to be safe. Plese help me ASAP, this has been bothering me on this car for a while and I'd like to know which side of the stick is accurate. Thanks.

Both sides of my stick are identical.

Ya, the stick reading is a little off. If you put in the exact amount of oil, it won't read right up to the full mark. Maybe there is room for another 1/2 liter??
