A man was flying in a hot air balloon and realising that he was lost, he reduced height, hoping to be able to recognise a landmark or something that would help him to figure out where he was.
Spotting a man down below in a field, he lowered the balloon further and shouted out to the man: “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”
The man below looked up and said, “Yes I can tell you. You are in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field”.
“You must work in Information Technology”, the man in the balloon replied.
“I do”, said the man in the field. “How did you know?”
“Well”, the man in the balloon replied, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but it’s no use to anyone”.
The man below said, “And you must work in Management”.
“Yes I do”, replied the man in the balloon, “but how did you know that?”
“Well”, the man in the field replied, “you don’t know where you are, or where you’re going, but you expect me to be able to help. You’re in the same position you were before we met, but now it’s my fault”.
Isn’t this so true to life!
