# Giving more than 100%??!! **Must Read!!! :)

Ever wonder about people who say they are giving more than a 100%?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%. How about achieving 103%?

Here is a little math that might prove helpful.

What makes life 100%?

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 * 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, and bullsh*t will take you over the top.

But look how far a**kissing will take you!!

A * * 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!

Just thought I'd Share!! Too Cute!

:rotfl: Very cute, Monica.

Must say that **kissing is not my specialty. Never has been, never will be, so guess I'll have to stay in the Attitude category. :chuckle

Nighty night!

Me either.

I think I am on of the blatent non-conformists that refuse to get sucked into the "Klicks" of most things.

Attitude is better than scoring 118% as I see it. But ya know this holds true in so many cases! :)

A**kissing isn't my specialty either. Neither is Walking on Water which adds up to 173% ( according to figures above)
