Subject: Give 100%...

We have all worked for companies, or been to those meetings, where someone wants the participants to give more than 100%.

Follow me with this one......here's a little math that might prove helpful in the future:

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
Equals:
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;
"K N O W L E D G E" would equal: (11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5) which is only 96% while;
"H A R D W O R K" would equal: (8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11) which is only 98%.
Using this same scale;
"A T T I T U D E" would equal: (1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5) which is exactly 100%

Unfortunately;
"B U L L S H I T" equals (2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20) which gives you 103%
and;
"A S S K I S S E R" equals (1 19 19 11 9 19 19 5 18) which adds up to a whopping 120%.

So the next time someone asks you to give more than 100% you'll know what it is they are really asking for!

Shouldn't this be called... "Company Morale"?

I always liked the posters that say "The beatings will continue until the morale improves!"
