When wanting to pranks on Apprentices their co-workers will often send them to another location to fetch them a "Long Wait". The inexperienced Apprentice will actually believe he is getting a tool of some sort, but in the end will just come out looking like one.

It is an unspoken rule that if an apprentice comes to you looking for a Long Wait that you will tell them you'll be right back and leave them sit for at least ten minutes.
Apprentice: "Hi, the boss just sent me here to get them a long wait."
Kindly Stranger: "Sure, mate, just have a seat and I'll get it for you."
*15 minutes later
Kindly Stranger: "Go on kid, back to work you go..."
