Улыбнулось :))



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 are in a hot air balloon hovering
approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41
degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west
longitude."
"You must be an engineer," 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 have no idea what to make of your
information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you've not
been much help so far."
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
are going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity
of hot air. You made a promise, which you have 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."
