A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realising that he is lost, he reduces height, hoping to be able to recognise a landmark or something that will help him to determine where he is.
Spotting a man down below in a field, he lowers the balloon further and shouts out to the man: “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”
The man below says: “yes you are in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field.”
“You must work in Information Technology,” says the man in the balloon.
“I do,” replies the man in the field. “How did you know?”
“Well” says the man in the balloon, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but it’s no use to anyone.”
The man below says, “You must work in Management”.
“I do” replies the man in the balloon, “but how did you know that?”
“Well”, says the man in the field, “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.”
