He'll fill out the month and the year, but not the day. I can't imagine what might be going through his head as he does this. I can only surmise that it must be some "directive" from a "higher power" (read paycheque writer).

Here are a few examples of what I mean:







ASTTBC requires that all tags on fire protection equipment be properly completed. This means that the date for re-inspection must be clearly identified and this includes the DAY of the inspection, ladies & gentlemen! You can read more about how the tag should be completed HERE!
