Up in the air a balloon story ...

Here is my new fun treasury with a little story ! :

A man pilot­ing a hot air bal­loon dis­cov­ers he has wandered off course and is hope­lessly lost. He des­cends to a lower alti­tude and loc­ates a man down on the ground. He lowers the bal­loon fur­ther and shouts:

“Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”

The man below says: “Yes, you’re in a hot air bal­loon, about 30 feet above this field.”

“You must work in Information Technology” says the balloonist.

“Yes I do” replies the man. “And how did you know that?”

“Well” says the bal­loon­ist, “what you told me is tech­nic­ally cor­rect, but of no use to anyone.”

The man below mut­ters “Thought so”, looks up and says ” You must work in Business Management.”

“I do” replies the bal­loon­ist with some sur­prise, “how did you know?”

“Well”, says the IT guy, “you don’t know where you are, or where you’re going, but you expect my imme­di­ate help. You’re in a situ­ation of your own mak­ing without the right tools or plan­ning, but now you are expect­ing me to fix it.”
