This guy opened his new MacBook Pro box and found this laminated card with Chinese text on the front and back. What is it? A desperate message asking for help? A fortune cookie message? UPDATED.
A MacRumors forum member claims that it is just a Foxconn worker’s card, which “basically [reminds the worker of] the working guidelines, follow SOP (standard operating procedure), wear static bracelet, make sure everything is right before changing the shift, etc..”
Can you understand what it says? Tell us in the comments below. [MacRumors Forums]
Update: The card is written in Cantonese and belongs to the factory worker who packed the laptop. It lists the Foxconn 13 Commandments. Here’s what it says:
Four codes to live by while working at the factory
3. Organisation (basically means how you organise stuff to improve work efficiency).
1. Always be ready for any challenges you might stumble across.
2. Always have a plan.
3. Prepare alternate solutions for problems you might encounter.
4. Give 110 per cent.
5. Enjoy the fruits of your labour, aim higher the next time.
1. Those who are gonna touch components or motherboards should wear static bracelet.
2. Before changing to a new pipeline check Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and quality checking. Also make sure “target type” is loaded. Read once more to make sure.
3. Ensure that the parts you have in hand are the correct ones before assembling.
4. Make sure your work is done before changing shift, and put this card on the machine you just worked on before leaving.
Obviously, someone put the card in the wrong place this time. [Thanks readers!]
