I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.

Would almost have to be a male kid. Most females get that term in Sex Ed in 6th grade, even back in the 70's (or late 60's when I had it). Big Grin

We would send the self anointed, better n' the rest of us, "Egg-Head" to the hardware store to get a squeegee sharpener! Of course, the hardware store knew us so we'd call em' up and tell em' we were sending em' one to run through the wringer.

The guys at the hardware store would wander around saying things like, I think we've got one here.. maybe we moved it over there.. and so on.. so they'd hold em' for 20-30 mins then send em' onto another hardware store. Of course, the new hardware store would get a warning call. There were 4 hardware stores in town.

The last hardware store would run em' around in circles for a while and finally tell the poor "Egg-Head" something to the effect their was no such animal!

Sometimes we'd send these "Egg-Heads" out for a "Left-Handed Monkey Wrench"... same game.. especially for the ones that didn't get the message the 1st time about the Squeegee Sharpener!

We had some other wonderful things we'd do to those that were truely arrogant!

That reminds me of the time I was working in the O.R. @ a local trauma center, the surgeons would pick on the new nurses, by sending them on a wild goose chase to find an Otis Elevator (the new nurses were thinking it was an instrument needed for the operation they were working on) only to find out "Otis" is the brand
of elevator that people ride on.

RE: Sleep apnea funnies
Be careful with some of the left handed tools. Being a southpaw, I do legitimately own a left hand monkey wrench and a left hand crescent wrench. The are set so the adjustment screw works for a leftie. BTW, I also have a left handed fountain pen.

One of our favorites in the electronic warfare business was a key to a hydrostatic lock.

Heard of a guy being sent out for a bucket pf prop wash and he came back with kerosine. He owned an aircraft with a wood prop and they would clean it with kerosine.

Always fun.
