    Oh man, where’d you get the killer SparkFun lunchbox? Was that an employees only thing?

    Wow. This is incredible. I’m blown away by their response and generosity. I went from saying I’d never buy Fluke again, to being their biggest fan. What an amazing thing to do. How do you give a standing ovation in a blog comment?

    It’s on Reddit already. Let the bad press begin. FLUKE reversal decision is 3….2….1….

    Let’s flood their Twitter feed with cries for help. They need to get on this and fix it ASAP. @FlukeCorp

    OK, I just officially boycotted FLUKE. This is ridiculous. What’s next, Mead owns yellow pencils? Stanley owns yellow screwdrivers? Maybe I’ll patent black and sue EVERYONE! But in all seriousness, maybe FLUKE will make an exception if they get a bunch of bad press over this.

    OK, just so we’re clear…that’s mandatory overtime for everyone. Got it? So if you need to take a quick power-nap at lunchtime, I’ve got these little beds for you to curl up on.

    OK, just so we’re clear…the little beds are for the dogs, OK? So don’t me catch anyone curling up for a mid-day nap. Got it?

    Why is the white $1.95 and the blue $2.50? The white is basically a blue with a white filter over it. (If you look at the back of the white one when it’s on, you can see it glowing blue.) So it cost’s 55 cents more to not put the filter on it??

    Maybe pets in a smaller setting is OK, but I think there’s no room for it at a huge company like SparkFun. I don’t think people should be bringing their pets to work. I don’t care what the dog owners say. Every minute that’s spent tending to their pups is time taken away from work. I for one would not care to work in an environment where people were allowed to bring their dogs to work. There’s just no place for it. I think you guys have gotten lucky up until now. You should ban dogs at the workplace before you end up with a lawsuit. Are you guys ISO 9000 certified? How does that play into things? I can’t image any company getting any kind of decent cert while they have dogs roaming around the place. I don’t know, but I feel a little weird about getting my electronic components from a company that has 30 dogs running all over the place. It may not be “rampant” like I imagine, but you can’t deny the public’s perception. And sometime perception is everything. Facts don’t matter once the perception has been made. It might just be bad for business. I’d love to work for SparkFun, but putting up with 30 dogs would be a deal-breaker. Have you guys lost any good talent because of the dogs?

No public wish lists :(
