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? 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 you, 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!"

love it -- I had heard it with a Democrat in the balloon and a Republican on the ground, but of course that doesn't 'translate' everywhere. EVERYone gets this version. (everyone who has held a job, anyway....)

Pretty good one, Edward.  A lot of management is like that.
