    Cool

    When I was a young NCO, I had a new airman assigned to me. I was his trainer.

    We were preparing for an exercise in which we had to mobilize all of our communications equipment, pack tents, and in general everything we'd need to live in the field for a couple of weeks.

    While preparing the generators that powered our equipment, I had a brilliant idea. I called the generator maintenance shop (their NCOIC was a prankster as well as a good friend) and told them that I'd be sending an airman over to pick up the "long wait" that is used to balance the loads on the generators. So I send Amn Snuffy over to the power pro shop around 0800. My friend the NCOIC calls me when he gets there and asks, "How long do you want me to make him wait?"

    To which I replied, "Until he figures it out." =)

    At around 1300, Amn Snuffy comes back, and isn't pleased. One of the lower ranking airmen in the generator maintenance shop ratted us out, or he would have been there almost the entire duty day! You should have seen the look on his face. Of course, he was miffed, but he turned out to be a pretty goood Airmen, as well as a good NCO. But I will never let him live down the fact that he spent 5 hours waiting on a long wait. =)

    That was almost 10 years ago, and to this day, whenever he gets a new person in the shop, he pulls the same prank and calls me with the results! Gotta love it.

    Maintainers can get pretty creative. Left handed screwdrivers, fuse repair kits, and long waits were the norm! I miss those days.

    Air Traffic control. Federal job so we have to be cautious about getting too crazy. The old "black shoe polish on the tower binoculars trick" is my next move, I think.
    We used to use carbon paper on the Nav’s sextant, had one who would take a celestial shot then verify it with the other eye, had two black eyes until we got to billeting and he looked in the mirror.

    Personally, to one up your friends and drive them crazy for weeks or even a few months, go to http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/8c52/ and buy a cheap annoy-a-tron.

    Best investment I ever made and the annoy-a-tron 2.0 is the greatest http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/b278/. Hide them in the wall outlets, under a desk drawer, somewhere rather sneaky. They come with a magnet attachment too.

    Enjoy!
