Another Lighter Note - 100%

In the spirit of Jimv7's previous "Lighter Note", here's something which was passed on to me earlier today, and which I hope will provide amusement to all hard-pressed workers...

Words of wisdom, nicely backed up by science!

Have you ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings (or had conversations) where
someone wants over 100%. How about achieving 103%? Here's a little elementary maths that might prove to be helpful to you.

If...
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.

Then...

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

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

But,
A T T I T U D E
1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100%

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

So, it stands to reason that hard work and knowledge will get you close; attitude will get you there; but bullshit will put you over the top.

But, 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 the next time someone asks you to give more than 100%, you know what is required of you!

Very good.
