  Ever wonder .....

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.

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.
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 Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

  I hate ass kissing. Its so demeaning.

I also hate talking yourself up, or "tooting your own horn."

  Interesting. So basically, long difficult words get the job done?

If you can't stun them with intelligence baffle them with bullshit.

Most people will just nod if they don't know what you're talking about.

That little piece of intelligence was passed on to me by a very nice co-worker who saw I was having a very hard time dealing with my new moronic boss after my promotion. Needless to say, it worked like a charm. I have never enjoyed ass kissing, but let me tell you... 1 week after the boss told me that I either changed attitude or he would fire my ass, and 5 days after I received the priceless message, I was his favorite!!! LOL

  While brown nosing and sucking up work, the thing is- which is worth more to YOU? A promotion or your morals?
