I got sent a mail from someone with this in it and found it very clever:
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%
K -N -O -W-L -E-D-G-E
A-T -T -I -T -U -D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
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
So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, its the Bulls*&t and A$s kissing that will put you over the top.
Pretty good….maybe thats what BH has been tryin to tell me all along..but I’ve never been to good at butt kissin, guess I’m doomed huh?
James, I don’t butt kiss well either… Could go the other route too, rich jerk style. Be rude to everyone and then get followers because people find it funny 😉
I think that there is a happy medium though and being yourself should be more then enough! Thanks mate for reading my post
That must be from main stream Corporate America – it’s been hanging around water coolers for years.
Do you know why telling a clean joke will always be hilariously funny?
(Answer: No one has ever heard it before!)
LoL, Leah, thats very funny and quite true i guess
Here is one of my favorite management jokes. It’s the first one that starts off with…”A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost.”
