The other one is the tartan paint scam. A couple of us managed to convince one of the YTS lads to go to the local paint shop and get some made up, bitd! :lol: :lol:

Always look busy.

This is as true in engineering as it was when I was cleaning a food warehouse at age 14 :D

In my first 6 weeks as an apprentice brickie I learnt that these things don't excist;
Sky hooks
Skirting board ladders
Half nails
Long weight
New bubble for spirit level
Tartan paint
I'm sure there are more but I can't remember.
I also learnt how to lose all my money at cards and how to drink 10+ pints of lager without throwing up, ah happy days :wink:

One of the best jokes I've seen played on a new kid on site:

Builder: Can you get me an adjustable spanner from the stores?

New kid: Yep

New kid returns with adjustable spanner

Builder:Sorry mate, that's a imperial one, I need a metric one.....

It works surprisingly often!

When I was in Oz I knew someone who worked at a car wash and found out you can make a Huntsman spider hiss if you piss it off enough!
