Dipstick - peterb
Had a meeting with a fleet manager the other day. He was full of good stories, but the best one (which he swore was true) went like this:

Van driver calls maintenance dep't asking where he can get a new dipstick for his Transit. Maintenance bloke gives him the name and address of the appropriate garage but can't resist asking how he lost the previous one. Reply: "Oh, I've still got it, but it's the wrong sort - it's too short to reach the oil!"
Dipstick - Hugo {P}
I think this was also a term used to describe a parts manager at a dealership I used to work at.

Among his many initiatives was to fold a large gasket on handing it to a customer, so that the customer could put it into his pocket!
