Overworked!!
« on: July 13, 2003, 06:32:55 PM »

For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason:

I'm tired because I'm overworked!  

The population of this country is 237 million.


104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work.

There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work.

Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work.

2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.

Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.

That leaves just two people to do the work.

You and Me.

And you are sitting at your computer reading jokes...


;D

Hey Jo--

I'm so glad you cleared this up for us.  I have often wondered who actually worked--was surprised to find out it isn't me...tee hee.

I also found this fitting...

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....
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%
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%
So, as far as giving 100%,
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.
And look how far butt kissing will take you....
A S S K I S S I N G
1 19 19 11 9 19 19 9 14 7= 127 %

O-M-G!!!  That killed me!!  

And I insist that the mathmatical ways to get ahead is absolutely how it works in my company.
