When I was at WREX, we had a production intern one semester. We happened to have a side-marker go out (so not something that has to be reported to the FAA) but something that had to be logged an reported to engineering. Well, our assistant chief happened to be working that night and had an old tower light bulb in his office. So we both went to the intern and said, "well here's the light, you need to climb up the tower and change it." The weird part is, I think he believed us.
