You must be in Top Management!

I got this from Sreeprakash, it’s worth reading.

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She reduced
altitude and spotted a man below. She descended a bit more and
shouted,

Women in a hot air balloon


“Excuse me Sir, can you help me? I promised a friend, I would meet him
an hour ago but I don’t know where I am.”

The man below replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You’re between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.”

”You must be an engineer,” said the lady balloonist.

“I am”, replied the man. ‘How did you know?’

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

The engineer below responded, “You must be in Top Management.”

”I am”, replied the lady balloonist,

“But, how did you know?”

“Well,” said the Engineer,

“You don’t know where you are, or where you’re going. You made a promise, which you’ve no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you, to solve your problems. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”
