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 latitiude and between 59 and 60 degrees west latitude''

''You must be an engineer'',said the balloonist
''I am '' the woman replied.How did you know?
''Well'' answered the balloonist,''everything you told me is, techincally correct, but I have no idea of 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 '' the balloonist replied.''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 you make me feel that some how it's my fault''



Moral:  Engineers make no sense and Managers make no friends
