    A man in a hot air balloon realized 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 are in a hot air balloon
    hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are at
    a latitude of between 40 and 41 degrees north and a
    longitude of between 59 and 60 degrees west."

    "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 have no idea what to make of your
    information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly,
    you've not been much help so far."

    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 are going. You have risen to where you are due to
    a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you
    have 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 we met but now, somehow,
    it's my fault."
