high angle primers

When I was in the Army every new guy was sent on some crazy goose chase. Being artillery we would usually send them to the captain to get some "high angle primers" or a "breechlock key".

I'm sure we weren't the only ones to do this. What are your favorite tricks?

When I was going to college I drove a school bus for a part time job.
We used a t-shaped metal handle to open body side panels to check the engine.
Everyone called this handle gadget a wickerdicker, and sometimes we lost them.

The chief mechanic told our secretary to order a wickerdicker so she got on the phone to the Crown Coach parts department in Los Angeles and said "I need a wickerdicker".

When the parts clerk fiinally stopped laughing he said "I'm sure you do, ma'am, but we're all married men here".
