The ability to recognize and communicate something being out of whack or off balance.
When your boss is trying to get you to do something outside of your job description and they are not paying you for the additional work... you should reply...
"Look (insert boss' name here) - I know the score. I know what's what. I'm not doing that TPS report unless you either a) pay me more, or b) lick my asshole first, literally... get down there and lick my asshole and recognize what it feels like to be scum... ok? good talk. let me get back to what I was doing before you interrupted."

Used in a sentence:
"Eh... they can ask all they want... I'm not working late tomorrow night. They know the score... I don't need to tell them."
