    HaHa! I remember at my first Boy Scout Jamboree, the older guys were breaking in the new Tenderfoot boys with the 'Go get a left handed smoke shifter....' that saw them running around to every troop's campfire and asking the question...or in the bicycle business, training up a new young mechanic with 'get me a metric Crescent wrench...' Cheers

    I had a young inexperienced kid watching me run a Bridgeport yrs ago. I told him to go to the back of the shop, look on the top shelf, and grab me a box of 'finish-marks'. I didn't see him again till after lunch.

    Mate, We'd be called bullies today, but my, it was actually character building...after you realised, sometimes years later, that yes, you were taken advantage of, but a lifelong lesson was learned, not to distrust authority, but to question it and seek out the truth...cheers...and I've only ever found a right handed smoke shifter...go figure...

    I detest practical jokers. In my version of hell they'll be permanently assigned to sewer sweeping duties.

    When some brain-dead donkey tells you to go get an imaginary framus, the right thing to do is go have an extended, relaxing lunch then come back and go to his boss and tell him you were sent by donkey to get a framus and that you searched for three hours but couldn't locate one and could the boss help you find one. Chances are the boss will not appreciate donkey wasting the time of employees he pays a salary.

    The border of that coupon looks like it's from Harbor Fright.
