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?

We had several in the Marine Corps:

ID(numerical ten)T - ID10t
BA(numerical eleven hundred)NS - BA1100NS
E2 Alignment Tool - A hammer.

My all time favorite was at the electronics maintenance company where I was stationed we had a section that worked on PRK radios. Naturally they were prick radios. We'd send newbies in to the company office to get a Prick E-8. The 1stSgt would come flying out of the office, mad as hell, demanding who did it this time. He never could figure it out because every single person in the shop would be laughing so hard there would be tears in their eyes.
