I have had to catch a bird that was stuck inside a classroom.
Helped a builder rebuild and reinforce the inside of a wall so that we could then bolt the big shelter that had almost fallen off back on.
Jump start a stupidly large (6.4L) four wheel drive that no one else could, turned out that it needed to be hooked up to a running car for a couple of minutes because the battery was that big and that flat.
Re-mount a couple of white boards (not interactive) and board up some windows when the caretaker was away.
Never been told to do any of that stuff though, always asked. Our staff know better

I would have had her bend over, stand next to the window, bright light ect.

Ha! New one straight of the press.
Just had to climb a tree to retrieve a child's shoe that flew off during football. All female staff except for Head who is out, and apparently climbing trees is boys stuff

Well ii was in a tree that is in the middle of the conrete area but it sat there for a bout 2 days and all the kids started either trying to see if it would fall out (if they shook the tree hard enough) or if they could tempt it out of the tree by throwing food to (at) it. Or shoes. Or other kids. It was during that really cold spell we had & teh kids couldn't understand why it would just cling there. Neither could we really but we got some great rumours going about what happened to it after it was just gone one morning.

There seems to be bit of a wildlife/bird (feathered kind) theme here
In true female fashion though the whole job was halted to discuss one of my fellow dove catcher's new Per Una cardigan
Helping to recover an escaped dove. They were supposed to be kept under netting for 4 weeks to get used to their new home and one escaped.
One 7 month pregnant teacher (not me) , two learning mentors, me, a tablecloth and a butterfly net.

Just posed as the husband of one of the admin staff. (Not in that way! - though she's a nice lady and I wouldn't say no to her daughter if I was single). She wanted to cancel her Broadband, but it was in her husband's name.
Did something similar once on a private job, and almost came unstuck when "my" mother's maiden name had "gone out of my head" and "my" missus didn't know it either! Luckily the bloke in the call centre wasn't overly worried...

Done that as well for someone I was doing a job for. Only trouble was it was for a female. Phone monkey at the end didn't seem to mind.
