    I’m surprised he doesn’t have a “Kick me please” sign on his back; but then Dilbert would probably quickly put one there.

    There were doing the at work some time ago. I was thinking of putting Labermaker on the label maker, and Label on the label.

    ISO9000—I believe today it’s called QS9001—is just a sham. For example, when this first started at the company I’ve worked at for 38 years, we had an internal audit that revealed many measuring devices that weren’t labeled as requiring or not requiring periodic calibration. As a result, we were all given rolls of “no calibration required” stickers to apply to all appropriate measuring devices. Even 12-in. wooden rulers that we all had in our desks got stickers! Ridiculous.Yet, here we are a couple of decades later and this nonsense is still going strong. And quality is no better, and probably worse. (Evidence the seemingly endless Takata air bag igniter recalls; it wouldn’t surprise me if every car on earth will require a replacement air bag igniter before this is over.)I honestly think the reality is that this whole “quality program” silliness is just a kickback scheme to enrich upper management, whereby these consulting companies that “register” a firm as “QS9001 compliant” gets paid gigantic fees, kicking back the standard 2% (perhaps as high as 5%) to the registrant’s management.Scott Adams, right from the beginning of Dilbert (and this strip is from 1995), has had the pulse of the corporate world and has made the most of it with Dilbert.And the beat goes on….

    Especially with that shirt-label… he could either be the “Stupid Label” Guy, the guy who posts “stupid labels”, or as some might see it, he’s the “Stupid Label Guy”… a stupid guy who posts labels. :-P

    Does Scott Adams have a “Demented Trumpsucker” label on his shirt?

    I had to have the label “candy” on my candy dish on my desk. Surprisingly the desk did not have to have a label saying it was a desk

    Put a label on the boss: PHB. Put a label on that big green box outside the building: “transformer.” Put a label on the drinking fountain: “H2O.” Put labels on the waste baskets: “waste basket.”

    ISO 9000, what a crock! You can be certified if you produce garbage as long as you document each and every step and consistently produce documented garbage.

    This ISO thing reminds me of the late ’80’s when it was decreed the entire company was going metric. Our Technical Writing group was empowered to enforce it. The company is still there, and though I’m retired now, I understand they still use inches and pounds.

    Or how about the Medicare summaries they send you every month, every time with a sheet of 27 different languages?

    You can all make jokes but I know what I’m doing with the rest of the day.

    Gotta be based on that story from The Dilbert Principle where a department prepares for a VP’s tour by excessively labeling everything in sight. At the end he says “I wanted a lab tour, not a trade show”

    I had a photo on my desk. I labeled it Granddaughter. The idiotic powers- that- be were not amused.

    Stupid Label Guy must be ex-military straight out of the 1970s.

    How shall we label Dilly’s “Crooked Tie”? And of course every label will be labelled “Label”!

    Or, we could just let the whole crock slowly die….

    I wonder if the Space Shuttle had a label!
