Friday FAIL

You had one job...

The people who made these mistakes should be given a choice: a spanking or dismissal.

That second pic with the Fanta can brought back some memories. "Con verdadero sabor a naranja" (with real orange flavor)is printed upright while all the other lithography is upside down. That some mistake!

I had a summer job too many years ago making beer cans. Coke, Pepsi, other soda can, too, but mostly beer cans. We'd make them, ship them to the bottling plant/brewery to be filled and capped. The can in the pic is one-piece aluminum top and sides, and that's how it is shipped. The pop-tops are shipped separately to be put on by the bottling plant/brewery.

How many would we make? A single line (and we had a dozen lines!) would crank them out at about 500-cans a minute. And in the summer, we ran 24x7!

Back then, though, the cans were steel (ask your parents) and we would ship the can bodies with the bottom end attached, and ship the top ends separately.

I never saw where the printing was screwed up like this. Colors not just right? OK.

The worse mistake was the guy taking the cut sheet and putting them in the machine that joins/seams the body into a cylinder. At 500 cans a minute it would often take 15-minutes for that reversed body to get caught - sometimes - by QC. That would be 7,500 bad can bodies. If QC missed it, more than likely those bad cans would get shipped to the bottling plant/brewery. And if THEIR QC also missed, those cans would get filled, and sometimes shipped to retailers.

Eventually, though, someone at the bottling plant/brewery, a truck driver, or your local grocery would notice and all those cans would be sent back to the bottling plant/brewery. Who pissed, would send them - filled - back to us for replacement. At our expense!

What did management do with those CASES of filled cans...? The company would sell them - by the case! - to the employees!! A case of Coke, or Budweiser, or you name it - for $1. Off brands you never heard of - free.

God that was fun.
