I know when I was coming up through my apprenticeship, journeymen would try and get me to fetch the craziest things. For example..a flex stretcher, yes I fell for it. I emptied a whole gang box looking for one. Good times and memories though!
So what about the rest of ya'll? Ever been sent after something fictional when you were coming up?
FYI: For my incorrect spelling of the Subject title, "Apprentice's" oops!

From my buddy at the cabinet shop: Send somebody out (big shop, multiple bldgs) to get a grain stretcher, send him around awhile, then ask if it was the metric or standard strechter that he needed, then send him out again.
