It’s week two with our North Pole “Quality Auditor”. Big Pap Elf.  Here is a recap of his work.

SNL in a box

While hanging out with our supervisors, asked them if they would like to learn how to make Christmas gifts that would be cherished far greater than those purchased.  Obviously they were interested.  What they didn’t expect was Elf to steal an old Saturday Night Live bit from Justin Timberlake.  Definitely not what the guys were expecting.

Elf asked to see one of our fire extinguishers.  We assumed to check the data and charge.  WRONG.  For someone Elf’s size it’s a Saturn IV rocket.  Off he went across the shop.  I can’t imagine how many safety violations he caused with that stunt.

Late one afternoon Elf thought he would help himself to a snack in the vending machine.  Thanks to our Quality VP Paul Spiderman Lord he was caught.  Paul’s Spidey Senses tipped him off and Elf was stopped just in time.




Supervisor rocket

I guess Elf was upset at the supervisors complaining over the “free Christmas Gift” idea.  I came in one morning to all three supervisors, strapped to rockets and ready to fly.  Luckily Elf’s rocket making abilities are not that good.  All three rockets fizzled and the guys are okay.


Elf met with me yesterday to wrap up his quality audit.  Ebsco passed his “inspection” although I can’t imagine how he actually inspected anything. As his final detail of our inspection Elf informed me he would be back next year, same time, same place for another audit.  “Oh Gooood” I replied.   I was just relieved we had survived another visit from our little friend.


Now if you will excuse me I need to go mark my calendar for next year.

Just Saying…….
