  1. A woman in a hot air balloon realised she was lost. She reduced altitude and
  2. spotted a man below. She descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me,
  3. can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet her an hour ago, but I
  4. don't know where I am".
  6. The man below replied, "You're in a hot air
  7. balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between
  8. 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west
  9. longitude."  "You must be in IT support", said the balloonist.
  11. "I am", replied the man, "How did you know"?
  13. "Well", answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is, technically
  14. correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information, and  the fact
  15. is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything,
  16. you've delayed my trip."
  18. The man below responded, "You must be in Management".
  20. "I am", replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
  22. "Well", said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're
  23. going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air.
  24. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect
  25. people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly
  26. the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my
  27. fault!!
