MORE than 100%??

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life? Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K =8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and so....

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

But look here......

B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T = 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

And look how far ass kissing will take you.....

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G = 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118% !!!!!!!

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that, while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.


To incident I am prone...
Cast me out and watch me skip along.....

Hehe, yeah that's a good one. We have used that as a teaching tool for many years now. It's very funny and an excellent way of gettign a message across to our Students.

For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

My boss gave a small laugh, but did not see the humor I did. Guess it hit too close to home

Now that's what I call a mathematical "reality check".
