Metric Crescent Wrench

If you are on a construction site, assembling things or backstage setting up a show, you are being too nice if you don't mess with the greenhorns.

You have to do it. Everyone gets hassled their first time out and why shouldn't you pass on the legacy?

One really great prank is to ask your gofer to get you a metric crescent wrench. Now you know just as well as I do that the wrench will adjust to any nut, but the flunky doesn't know that. Call them aside, look them straight in the eye and say, "Look, I need a metric crescent to finish the job. Go get one."

They might be sharp enough to suggest that the wrenches are adjustible, but that's where you look them in the eye and say, "This wrench only goes to 3 inches, I need one that goes to 10 centimeters. Now quit monkeying around and go get it!"

Of course, you'll know that 3 inches and 10 are the same thing, but they may not and really, that's the fun of the prank in the first place.

Hopefully your "flunky" is smart enough to tell you that 3 inches is equal to 7.5 centimeters not 10.
