* Newly-hired firefighters in California will often be sent to retrieve the hose stretcher (fire hose doesn't stretch), check the engine's spark plugs or brake fluid (almost all fire engines are diesel-powered and have air brakes), or locate a Sloan valve (which would be the flush valve on a urinal, manufactured by Sloan Plumbing Supply).
** Another time-honored method of fucking with the new guy, especially in rural areas, is the Firewatch. The FNG is posted outside after dark, possibly on the roof, but always in the open, and ordered to keep watch for any fires on the horizon. The new guy may or may not have been warned about Chupacabra or other possible dangers, and the rest of the crew may or may not sneak around making ominous noises while the new kid freaks the fuck out.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': Prince Leo reveals to his retainer, Odin, that the first few missions he sent him on were more or less requests for things made up on the spot (e.g. "find a lodestone imbued with the essence of darkness") or thought to be impossible ("defeat the spirits that [sleep] in the Woods of the Forlorn"). Despite this, [[AchievementsInIgnorance Odin was actually able to accomplish all of Leo's bogus demands]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' the [[JerkAss Arch]][[PointyHairedBoss mage]] will give you a task of finding out what happened to the dwarves, if you ask him for work after you've been accepted into the Mage Guild. This is a centuries old problem that no one has had any luck in solving; but the player becomes the first person to find the truth (which involves finding the only surviving dwarf).
