This one I found near our timeclock yesterday, and it fits so much I'm gonna share it with you. A man in a hot air balloon recognized he was off course and shouted to a pedestrian on the ground. "Can you help me? I promised a client I would meet him two hours ago, but I'm lost." The man on the ground responded, "You're approximately 50 feet off the ground, between 38 and 39 degrees north latitude and between 58 and 59 degrees west longitude." "You must be a software engineer," shouted the balloonist. "I am," replied the pedestrian. "How did you figure that out?" "Well," replied the man in the balloon,"Your answer was technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Sorry, but you haven't been any help at all." The man on the ground yelled back,"You must be a manager." "I am," replied the man in the balloon. "How did you know?" "Well," said the pedestrian,"You have no idea where you are or where you're going. You have risen to your current position because of a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you can't keep, and you expect people below you to solve your problem. So you see: You are in the same position you were in before we met but now, somehow, it's my fault."
