On-time percentage: 100%
 
— On-time percentage machine, "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler"
Object

The on-time percentage machine is a machine in the Krusty Krab that appears in the episodes "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler" and "Chum Fricassee."

Description

It is a gray machine installed on the wall at the Krusty Krab. It consists of an orange-brown clock on top which contains yellow numbers and hands. Below there are shelves used for employees to store their cards.

Technologically, it is a time-measuring machine used to determine an employee's tardiness or on-time arrival. Below the clock, there is a slot inside which one must insert their employee card into to activate the machine. Doing so will result in a robotic female voice stating the employee's on-time percentage.

Role in series

"SpongeBob Meets the Strangler"

SpongeBob, arriving at the Krusty Krab early, is waiting in front of this machine for the clock to hit 8:00am, the start of his shift, so he can immediately insert his employee card once the aforementioned time starts. He does so and his on-time percentage is at 100%.

Rather late to work, Squidward inserts his card into the machine, with his on-time percentage being 12%.

Later in the episode, just when the Tattletale Strangler is about to get revenge on SpongeBob when the two are alone at the latter's house, a majority of SpongeBob's friends throw a party for him for having a 100% on-time percentage.

"Chum Fricassee"

At the beginning of the episode Squidward is waiting for SpongeBob to clock out by inserting his clock in the machine around 6:00 PM, then Squidward does so once SpongeBob does. The machine plays the opposite role in this episode compared to its first appearance.

Trivia

  • Despite the Krusty Krab only having two employees, there are more than two employee cards placed in the machine's storage shelves.
  • The on-time percentage machine is actually a clock card machine.
