Tuesday Silliness...!

Here is a little something someone sent me that is indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud.

This is a strictly mathematical viewpoint...it goes like this:

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.

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
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
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, its the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

Now...if it's OK with you, I'd like to go and get some fresh coffee. Want to join me?

Absolutely Awesome! I hadn't thought about it quite like that...

And, yes, I'm Laughing Out Loud and SMILING...

Thanks for the Day Starter,
Cat

Hey Cat...thanks for stopping by. It's just a little bit of humor that, if we think about it, could be more true than we would like to think. All of us have seen certain people that seem to climb up through the ranks by means other than ability.

However, those kind of people in charge just give us something to gripe about, right?

See ya later, Smiley!

One thing Ive found is that 118% may get you over the top but its pretty much 103%, so even though its 98% gaining a lot of 96% its only putting in that 100% that will really keep you up there when you make it.

Oooops hit the send button too soon ... just wanted to add have a great day Jim. Thanks for your time and keepin' that 37% hot for us.

I just wanted to say the same thing.... yes it's mathematics, but it also happens to be way too true.

Hey Missi...thanks for stopping by. I know from your blog that you only have 6 days to go so I appreciate you taking the time to drop in and comment.

We are collectively going to miss you while you are offline and look forward to when our favorite down under beauty can be with us again on a regular basis. After all, it's the Ladies that give this blog a little class, ya know?

Jim

HermitJim said...

hey JS...glad you could drop by this morning. Those of us that spent enough time working for the "corporate world" know just how true it all is, don't we?

Thank goodness that some of us have managed to get to the point that we are free of all of that 103%.

Great Post and Great Comments!
I lost my last job in the 'corporate world' to someone who definitely gave 118% hahaha
It's all good. She actually did me a favor in the long run.
Have a good day all,
blondie :))

HermitJim said...

Hey Blondie...glad you could drop by. She just didn't know at the time that she was not only doing you a favor, but doing all of us one as well!

What would we do without our favorite blonde on here daily? I don't even want to think about it!

Hi Jim...this one gave me a laugh too, even though it's quite sad as i think as well that it is all too true.
Personally i prefer the 96%, 98% and 100%...as 103% and 118% enslave you cause you got to keep it up and you got the risk that it will come back to haunt you.

;o)

HermitJim said...

Hey Manu...thanks for dropping by. Your right...often the sad truth is hidden in a bit of humor! All we can do, it seems, is to grin and bear it!

Appreciate the comments.

Jim
