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 episode "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler."

Description

It is a gray machine installed on the wall at the Krusty Krab. It contains 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 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 episode

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 cheerfully jumps in midair upon his on-time percentage being at 100%.

Rather late to work, Squidward inserts his card into the machine, saying "Another day, another migraine," with his on-time percentage being 12%.

Later in the episode, just when the Tattletale Strangler is about to revenge on SpongeBob for tattling on him 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.

Trivia

  • Despite the Krusty Krab only having two employees (SpongeBob and Squidward), 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.
  • If not counting the freeze time, it took exactly 7 seconds after SpongeBob's placement of his card for Squidward to place his card.
