What do you consider to be "the oldest trick in the book"?

Reddit top voted answers...
That tap on the wrong shoulder, you know all of us have done that and fallen for that,
Fake throwing a ball. Dogs seem to still fall for it.
Hey, look over there!... Over, where?... Made you look
Just heading out for a pack of cigarettes.
We used to love making prank calls as teenagers. The old standby:
You: "Is your refrigerator running?"
Callee: "Uh, yeah"
You "Then you'd better go catch it"
Sadly, it seems this is now a lost art....

That first one about tapping someone on the shoulder probably is the oldest. Humans were likely doing that before they even had language. I wouldn't be surprised if chimpanzees do it.
