    @Prof d'anglais

    That term brings back memories.
    .
    The old timers in our machine shop used to have fun with their green-as-grass trainees. They would tell them to get a sky-hook from the tool crib. Always good for a cheap laugh.
    .
    Or tell them get some “virgin oil” to lube their micrometer. Or tell them to cut a little more off, “just a c—- hair.” A really small amount was “a red c—- hair.” One guy would ask if the trainee wanted to know “where the horse bit him.” If yes, the guy would show him.
    .
    I know it’s probably kind of offensive to some of you, but that’s real life.

    We would send guys to the welding shop for a can of sparks or down to the flight line for twenty feet of chord line . . . or to the prop and rotor shop for a gallon of prop wash. Ah . . . good times.

    Hey, all of you guys commenting on the tricks older workers play on young guys, thanks for the laughs so far. I used to resent those crabby old-timers, and – whooosh, tempus fugit – now I’m one of them!

    Some of the geekier versions were to send technicians off to fetch write only memories and dark emitting diodes!
