I love that there are 24 badges on the sash.

Wow, "Scott" was really aware. He knows mullet boss too well.

I hope my teacher's don't get this idea and aim it towards us.....

December 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCMeyer

I can't help but notice Scott already has 24 demerit badges on his sash... :P

December 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBDabbs

Simply Amazing.

December 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMick Theebs

Haha, Scott's face in panel 4 is brilliant!

December 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTanpeel

I'm not ashamed to admit I spent a few seconds counting Scott's badges in that last panel. He has 24.

December 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIan

So, what were the 25 possible badges? Or were there more than 25?

If you're short on ideas, feal free to open it up to a vote.

So who else noticed that Scott is already up to badge #24? :)

Scott Meyer is my hero. I'm so getting my demerit badge sash for work.

I've worked at places which basically have this kind of a system, minus the badges you wear. It's not as fun those two would like to make us think. Although, 25 warnings is actually pretty lenient... but only if they reset at least once a year!

Frame 4 - Scott's opera singer pose?

December 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbikeham

I love the new post! The third frame kept me laughing for a few minutes. And when i counted your badges i at first thought you had 27 on there. LOL Keep up the great work Scott.

He actually has 24 badges, folks.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterInnominate

Love the fact Scott's got 24 badges, and all in one week, truely a hero for our time.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJeff

24 badges for Scott, guess it was fun for him as well!

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRoc

haha briliant commic! :D

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermetalmark

Scott Adams, eat your heart out.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Naturally Scott already has 24 badges. Hard to see why he is so thrilled at this point anymore.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBrachen

The final expression has to be one of my favourites, every time it is used (inappropriately)

Also, for some reason, that kind of shoulder sash will forever remind me of Klingons

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTiramisu

No comments, what, is the comment thingie now broken?

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThomas

I bet he got all 24 in the first few hours... DELIBERATELY!

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDivinar

Ahh, good stuff.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

I love this; and I'm the boss-woman! Scott's gotten all the way to 24 in only one week. Over achiever.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commentermombalabamba

can I get a demerit badge sash?

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIzzy

A supervisor at my office tried to enact a system of marking the monitors of employees who had been written up with a yellow triangle, ostensibly so that any supervisors walking the call center could be aware of employees that should be monitored more closely. Another coworker and I stopped it immediately when we sent her
this link and started addressing her Meine Kommissar.

What software tools do you use to build your strip?

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRay C

I"m laughing way out loud. Nice.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjulianna01

Does the evil Disney corp have a similar system?

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterisiah

Heh it took a whole week to get up to 24?

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Will a list of the possible badges be forthcoming? That way we can play the home game.

December 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGH


I wonder if I could get those introduced here....

December 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDruss

Oh man I wish they would do this at my company! My goal would be to get one badge per week. You don't want to go too fast, or you will be up to Number 24 in no time, and then the fun is over.

December 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLuke314pi

I guess when Scott gets number 25, he finally attains the status of "walking eagle", and receives his walking papers.

Proof that any system can and will be broken. The time required to break it is usually proportional to the stupidity of the idea behind said system.

24 badges, counted them myself, 24 badges!
Bing bang bingalong, cing cang cingalong, ding dang dingalong day~
Fing fang fingalong, ging gang gingalong, hing hang hingalong hay~
Jing jang jingalong, king kang kingalong, ling lang lingalong lay~
Ming mang mingalong, ning nang ningalong, ping pang pingalong pay~
What's the reason, why'd she go? Where's my baby? I don't know!
24 badges, counted them myself, 24 badges!
