A man in a hot air balloon realized that he was lost.
He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted. "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The woman below replied. "You're in a hot air balloon hovering
approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 50 and 51
degrees north latitude and between 114 and 115 degrees west longitude."
"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist.
"I am," replied the woman. "How did you know?"
"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is
technically correct, but I've no idea how I can make use of your
information. The fact is, I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been
much help at all. If anything, you've only delayed my trip further."
The woman below responded, "You must be in management."
"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're
going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot
air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you
expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is, you are
in exactly the same position you were in before, but now, somehow,
you've managed to make it my fault!!"
