Lost Ballonist

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 50 feet above this
field. "
"You must be an 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 it's of no use to anyone."
The man below says, "You must be in management."
"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 position you were before we met, but somehow now it's my fault."

*Note: No pun intended towards people from managment side. Just that this joke reminds me of an acquintance during my study years. He was majoring in business study. He was boasting about how much money people in management will make compared to engineers despite the fact that engineering students spend most of their time studying. Hemm... I wonder how much he is making now?....
