    A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. 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, hovering 30 feet above this field."

    "You must work in Engineering or Information Technology," says the balloonist.

    "I do," replies the man. "How did you know."

    "Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's no use to anyone."

    The man below says, "You must be a Program Manager."

    "I am," replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

    "Well," says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same situation you were before we met, but now it's my fault."

    I've heard the same set of facts, but the guy on the ground is a lawyer, and the balloonist is a client. Substitute the words and try it out.

    I heard it waaay back as Microsoft Tech Support (ground) and the customer (balloon). But it didn't have the final, "and it's now my fault" part...
