I got an email or two asking about the measurements I used in my post yesterday about happenings at work.
If you’d like to follow me below the fold, I shall instruct. Keep them handy for your next review or request for a pay raise. (not safe for anyone)
Yesterday, I used the term “Shitload”
1-Load = The amount of work you can reasonably get done in 8 hours
1-Buttload = 1 Load plus your lunch break
1-Assload = 1 Buttload plus any and all breaks you are alotted
1-Shitload = Assload x 1.5
1- Fuckload = Shitload x 1.5
These are Standard American Equity measurements only.
Their Metric equivalents are as follows:
1-Loade = The amount of work you can get done in 4 hours
1-Bumloade – 1 Loade plus, the time normally spent complaining you are required to do too much work
1-Arseloade – 1 Bumloade, plus the time spent attempting to make the perfect pot of coffee (or spot of tea)
1-Shatload – 1 Arseload, plus you have someone else fill out your union grievance forms
There is no Fuckload Equivalent. Euros don’t work that hard.
