    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 me?
    I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, But I don't know where I am."

    >>>The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering
    >>>approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41degrees
    >>>north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

    >>>"You must be in Information Technology," 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've no idea what to make of your information, and the fact
    >>>is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If
    >>>anything, you've delayed my trip."

    >>>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're
    >>>going. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot
    >>>air. You made a promise, which you've 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."

    No No.

    If everything she told him was technically correct but it did not make common sense, he obviously was over the home office of Microsoft. ;f
