How do you achive over 100%?
« on: December 06, 2005, 03:45:36 pm »
I found this to be quite amusing:

Quote
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint,
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%?

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
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 then conclude with mathematical certainty that: While Hardwork and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, Bullshit and Ass-Kissing will put you over the top!

Meh, I still like my method of S-T-I-C-K-I-N-G--I-T--T-O--T-H-E--M-A-N.

217%, baby.

I'll figure one of these out later, in the meantime, I'll just mention that you misspelled "achieve" as "achive".

Yeah.

You all know that even if you're right in a situation at work doesn't mean that your boss thinks you are, so look at what you can accomplish by...

S-W-A-L-L-O-W-I-N-G--Y-O-U-R--P-R-I-D-E

19+23+1+12+12+15+23+9+14 + 25+15+23+20 + 16+18+9+4+5 = 263%



There's no surprise here, since everyone knows that most managers and supervisors are really good at...

B-E-I-N-G--AN--A-S-S-H-O-L-E
2+5+9+14+7 + 1+14 + 1+19+19+8+15+12+5 = 131%



And considering all the problems with people slacking... maybe it has something to do with many people just not...

H-A-V-I-N-G--C-O-M-M-O-N--S-E-N-S-E
8+1+22+9+14+7 + 3+15+13+13+15+14 + 19+5+14+19+5 = 196%

I purposefully dated this comment so that anyone who is too young to get it will not understand what the heck I'm talking about.

I say, if you get it, you're old enough.  It's far enough in the past that you have think and make a connection...or remember.
