HAHA there are some pretty good ones on there! Has anyone thought of anything new? Feel free to just include funny stories from you unit (i.e. turning you commanders patches upside down before the Command and Staff meeting)

Focus fluid for the camera lenses. We had instructors at AIT sending their students all over our school house asking for this. Too funny.
And speaking of the "exhaust sample", my first FTX at Bragg, I had the Motor Pool NCO try and send me down to help a SPC (P) get an exhaust sample. There she was, on her hands and knees with an empty gatorade bottle holding it up to the exhaust of a HMMWV. I told her they were giving her crap and she still refused to stop saying that since he outranked her, she was going to do what he said. While I can appreciate her respecting the rank, all I did was tell him "Okay SGT, I'll be more than willing to do it as long as you show me where in the TM to find the proper procedure for this." He looked at me like I had 10 heads and told me just to drive on. LOL
Google is your friend!

be careful with what you say. There are actual chem lights that do take batteries now. Also when I was stationed in Korea we sent a new kid on the quest to get a box of grid squares. The pvt came back with a cut up map......
The ones I liked the most was go check for soft spots in a Bradley's armor by tapping on it with a hammer.
Go check the bradley's shocks by jumping on it to see if it moves.
Or, go get an exaust sample from the vehicle. Send them out with a garbage bag to catch the exaust fumes, sit back and laugh...

Blinker fluid, Brake fluid, Muffler bearings, muffler belts, Referring to radios: remember the prick-77, well how about a prickee-7 (prick E-7), we had a former Air Force guy running all over the motorpool one day for squelch oil, the civilians mechanics even sent him all over!! ID 10 t (idiot) forms is a great one to have them ask a prickee-7 for.
I had a soldier to find some winterfresh can air to change out the summer air of the M gators tires. He'd drained all the air in one tire and went to the Supply SGT to get some can air. He laughed and walked away. He was so mad when I told him.
