Default 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:

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%


and


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%

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 Bull**** and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

Hmmm, so when we see a brown nose instead of thinking "What a dip *****!", we really should be thinking, "Wow, he really gave it his all!"

Good one, Mac!
