A woman in a hot air balloon realised she was lost.


She reduced altitude and spotted a man below.


She descended a bit more and shouted:


"Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him anhour ago but I don't know where I am".


The man below replied "You're in a hot air balloon hoveringapproximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude".


"You must be an Engineer" said the balloonist.


"I am" replied the man "how did you know?"


"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you have told me isprobably technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of yourinformation and the fact is, I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not beenmuch help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip with your talk."


The man below responded "You must be in management".


"I am" replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"


"Well," said the man "you don't know where you are or where you'regoing. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hotair. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and youexpect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are


in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now,somehow, it's my !@#$%$ fault."
