The Hot Air Balloon: management


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 between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between
59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"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."
