Giving 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 over 100%. How about achieving 103%? Here's a little math that might prove helpful.That makes life 100%? Let's
use mathematics and logic to figure it out!

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 I 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, but bullshit
will put you over the top. So, the next time someone claims to
be giving over 100%, you know what they are doing.......

Good one that. Got the same one on the board at the mine, but ours is related to safety.

Guess someone with lots of time on their hands could work out a few other wordings. Eh Laminge, Falchoon???????????hehehe

Sorry.

A. Maths ain't my thing.

B. You may have noticed I'm not posting that much lately, due to alarming increase in work.
