Officer Dibble

The corridors have been bare at work for months, but now the students are back and it is bustling and interesting once more. I don’t blog about work, because that would be wrong and it would be a whole new blog with anonymity for all concerned. However some things are ok because they are mere observations about passers by.

Did you know that if you want an entry-level job that does not involve using computers in any way, you are especially likely to be expected to complete an online job application? No paper form to fill out. That’s not even an option. Great, except there are a lot of people that want a job that can’t fill out an online job application.

It seems a bit to me like the world of work disappearing partway up its own bottom. So when I walked past Officer Dibble this week near reception I was rather fixated on identifying his job role via his insignia (remember no specs for distance)…

This pic is dedicated to Mr Daftburger cos I know he loves cats

Can you guess what it is yet?

    • Top Cat!
      The most effectual Top Cat!
      Who’s intellectual close friends get to call him T.C.
      Providing it’s with dignity.

      Top Cat!
      The indisputable leader of the gang.
      He’s the boss, he’s a pip, he’s the championship.
      He’s the most tip top,
      Top Cat.

      Yes he’s a chief, he’s a king,
      But above everything,
      He’s the most tip top,
      Top Cat.

      Top Cat!

  1. TC is not a cat and he doesn’t eat the indiginous population of birds. That and he’s funny. I also love Benny……OK TC!

    Obviously cartoons aren’t the real world and anyone hurt is just drawn again. What a model for utopia. I’ve realised that my favourite programmes tend to be animated. Am I regressing or is it just a symptom of me not wanting to live in the real world?

    I’ve a good news story check your in box! 😉 If you don’t want to take it as a guest blog Foster will, he’ll have owt! 😛

  2. Oh I’m with you DB – my favourite programmes are Pingu and Shaun the Sheep…

    No-one’s guessed Officer Dibble’s occupation though.

  3. The Coalition Concierge?

    • Non. He was a visitor and not a student. And he wasn’t the man that collects the money either. And he didn’t actually have a peaked cap on, but otherwise he was a dead ringer for Dibble.

  4. Officer Dibble is the Paper Shredder. He arrives in a van and takes the paper for shredding away. For this job you need to be dressed in a militia uniform.

    So there you are. What next I wonder.
