Hot air and management

The following joke was posted on the BCSWoman forum, which is actually quite funny 🙂 Thanks to this linked site for the fine picture!

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He spotted a woman below and called, “Excuse me, can you help? I promised a friend I would meet him, but I’m lost.”

The woman replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon 30 feet above this field.”“You must be in IT,” said the balloonist. “I am,” replied the woman, “How did you know?”“Well, everything you told me is technically correct, but it’s of no use to me.”

The woman 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.”
