How about this classic from Basic Training:

Drill Sergeant: "Who here has a driver's license?"
Unsuspecting Private: "I have a driver's license, Drill Sergeant"
Drill Sergeant: "Here, Private (Hands Private a rake), drive this rake"

END SCENE

Disclosure: I was that Unsuspecting Private.

OLD SCHOOL!!

God, How I used to hate police calling the woods because the old man found an un-field stripped butt somewhere. Sand raking was always fun, I used to pretend is was etch-a-sketch. Nobody could do a parquet sand bed like I could!

What was really irritating was some of us never smoked, and we were tasked with picking up the mess smokers left behind, there were no disposable gloves then and the worst was having to police used condoms.

I had a BN CSM who mandated that non-smokers did not have to pick up butts. Instead, he required all known smokers to be chosen for that.

When I was stationed in Kaiserslautern Germany, one of the motor pools was getting potholes in the gravel surface. The Engineers were called in to grade the motor Pool. When they started all sorts of OD metal was plowed up. Panzerfausts, rifles, sub machine guns. all crushed before being buried after WWII, but now this was no longer acceptable so they had to be dug up and disposed of.
