    Management proven :)

    I suspect this is old but - rather like it.


    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 that I would meet him an hour
    ago, but I don't know where I am."

    The woman below replied "You're in a hot air balloon hovering
    approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41degrees
    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 probably
    technically correct but I've no idea what to make of your information.
    The fact is, I'm still lost. Frankly, you haven't been much help at
    all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

    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're
    going. You have 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 that you
    are exactly in the same position you were in before we met but now,
    somehow, it's my fault."

    Seems about right. Have worked with the lady, and for the guy.
