The Engineer

So this guy is flying in a hot air balloon when he realizes he is lost. He reduces altitude 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.  Youíre in a hot air balloon, about thirty feet above the ground."

"You must be some sort of engineer", says the balloonist. "I am", replies the man,  "How did you know?" "Well", says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but itís of no use to anyone!"

The man below says, "You must be some sort of manager!"  "I am", replies the balloonist,  "but how did you know?"  "Well", says the man, "you donít know where you are, or where you are going, but you expect me to help.  You are in the same exact position you where in before we met, but somehow, now its my fault!
