A man in a hot air balloon, realising he was lost, reduced altitude and spotted a women below. He descended further and shouted to the lady “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, “Your’re in a hot air balloon, hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You’re between 40 and 41 degrees north and between 59 and 60 degrees west”
“You must be in IT, “said the balloonist to the woman. “Actually I am,” replied the woman, “How did you know?”

“Well” said the balloonist, “everything you have told me is technically correct but I’ve still no idea what to make of your information and the fact is I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help at all. If anything, you’ve delayed my trip”.

The woman below responded, “And you must be in Management.” “I am,” replied the balloonist, “but how did you know that?”
“Well,” said the woman, “you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You’ve risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you’ve 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 bloody fault.”
