    It was probably that stupid pointy-haired boss who told him to do it. fRont forget to label the stupid engineers, etc.

    Somebody might not automatically know that that is a coffee maker! COULD be an oversized stapler or something

    Unfortunately, he is not kidding. In EU, every EU funded piece of equipment, like chair, must be labeled like that or you have to pay back ALL the money received for ALL equipment…

    Everything labeled and everything in its place. At the company I work for several “enterprising” individuals glued painted plexiglass rings to the bottoms of the trash cans. No matter where they were, they were labeled and in place

    In which Dilbert anticipates Sheldon Cooper, who labeled everything including his label maker…

    Don’t most things sold in stores already have labels like “Mr. Coffee” and water?

    The nutrition label on a water bottle is a hoot [all zeros].

    Yeah I remember going through all that at a Motorola factory. We had to label water bottles, ‘water’. Safety first.

    Really? I must have retired before that became a “thing”

    Where I worked we just mocked the ISO 9000 rules by labeling EVERYTHING… coffee cup, pen, paper clip, push-pin, door, napkin. We had some good laughs and management was furious — which was the best part.

    It already Had the Manufacturer’s Label: Mr Coffee.

    But, the ISO9000 people were afraid someone would think the “Mr.” part would confuse someone into thinking it was the new Manager.

    Inventory control folks require UIDs (or bar codes) on everything that’s “equipment” and not “supplies”. It’s simple enough to add a {name} field.

    Nostalgia trip: it’s like the Old Days in Dick Tracy. Readers will know what I mean….
